28. Although quantifications like these by no means speak for themselves, it is significant that the BNTL (Bibliography of Dutch Language and Literary Studies) database, which contains a large and representative part of the output into research of Dutch literature from the 1940s to the present day, generates over 700 books and articles under the entry ‘poetica’ (Dutch for ‘poetics’), about 200 of which are dated post 1990s; and another 400 results under the Dutch equivalent ‘literatuuropvatting’. It is also telling that ‘De impact van literatuuropvattingen’ was one of the focus areas funded by NWO (The Netherlands Organization for Scientific Research) during the 1990s. Equally telling is the fact that one of the most recent and most severe attacks on Sötemann’s heritage within the research of Dutch literature, i.e. Thomas Vaessens’s 2009 book De revanche van de roman, takes the Abramsian-Sötemannian interpretation of the ‘autonomist’ poetics (as being non-mimetic, non-expressive, and non-pragmatic) for granted.
