This article explores the ways in which the concept of the ‘model’ can be used for research into the of literary authors. After reviewing the role of the concept in theoretical contributions dealing with the process of (Goffmann, Meizoz, Heinich), it raises some crucial methodological issues, such as (1) how can one discover the specific model an author has based his/her self-image upon? or (2) how can one account for the fact that an author belongs to different social fields, apart from the field of literature, and that these different fields can generate different types of models? Finally, the possibilities of the concept of the model are demonstrated by use of the case of Mina Kruseman.
