Summary/Abstract: According to the author, the notion of literary canon presupposes a shared heritage that can be considered self-evident and not immediately penetrable. The article covers different aspects of the canon – its relationship to the system of values, to the community it was generated in, to cultural institutions and its own development in time. The author analyzes the simultaneous existence of several competing canons and their interrelationship. He challenges the idea of the waning of canons and claims that they have specific functions in the postmodern era.v
