In the foregoing essays, the system of writings generally, the place occupied within this system by fine literature (belles-lettres) - aesthetically marked writings - and the concept of the creative process in the zoneshaping cultures were the principal objects of our study. Now, having examined the link between literature and the Absolute and the 'energetiCS' of literature (Essay 2); proper literary expression, serving as a means to convey this 'energetics' (Essay 3) and some literary implications of the doctrine of macrocosm and microcosm, we can return - albeit on a new level - to the problem of modelling the literary systems of the epoch of reflective traditionalism. As is obvious from even a provisional sketch of the system of writings (Essay 1, Illustration 1) and from our study of the notion of genre (Essay 3), the system of literature must also have represented a hierarchically ordered configuration of genres performing certain functions and possessing the poetical mechanisms essential for this. Nevertheless, the general ideological principles of this system, as well as the more particular prerequisites traceable to them, on the basis of which the system was built and was able to function, can only now be properly comprehended.
