These papers are mostly very short, and many of them rather slight. Their unity and depth lie in their being various illustrations of the truth, that literature, like art, is not a series or congeries of unrelated performances, to be judged individually and externally, but is a great, one of the greatest, in some respects the greatest, expression of the human spirit, in the unity of humanity, in the lesser unities of race, in all the modifications induced by environment, history, religion, institutions, as well as by fortuitous circumstances. This deeper apprehension and study of literature, introduced by Herder, Winkelmann, and Lessing, and fully developed by Goethe, is the convergence of science and aestheticism, having the depth of the former, while forfeiting nothing of the flexibility and beauty of the latter. And it is agreeable to this deeper study of literature, that its purpose is becoming deeper, in that returning to the earnestness of its early origins, which were around the altar. Mr. Mabie does not remark explicitly that its purposes as yet weigh upon it with a weight which impedes form and still more interferes with supreme serenity. The vehicle has not adjusted itself to the greater fullness of content. The papers which have struck us especially are, Sources, An Illustration from India, Form in Literature (in which the author, acknowledging its indispensableness, protests against too narrow a definition of it), The Race Element, Development of Form, Nature in Hebrew Poetry, The International Community, An Age of Expansion, The Spiritual Element in Literature, Some Mediaeval Epics. We mention these, chiefly because we cannot mention all. The whole series, however, shows that the author's enjoyment of literature, on its purely aesthetic side, has only been enhanced by his recognition of its scientific and of its religious depth.

In this comparative approach to the works of two major contemporary Egyptian writers, Mona Mikhail identifies existentialism as a major force in their work. Her close examination of the images and metaphors that recur in the short fiction of those two writers shows strong affinities with the works of Ernest Hemingway and Albert Camus, concentrating on a central preoccupation with the theme of death as a constant in he works of all four writers. Mikhail shows how Mafouz and Idris not only successfully incorporate myth and folklore but also draw upon the rich heritage of classical Arabic Literature as a source for their work.

Noting that few syntheses of research on children's literature exist, this annotated bibliography guides teachers, researchers, and librarians who are searching for research on a particular topic, strategies for using literature in schools, or children's books on a particular topic. Section I of the book focuses on children's literature research (research reviews, books, selected articles, other published studies, and dissertations) published from January 1985 through December 1993 and includes a discussion of the procedures for identifying, listing, and annotating that research. Section II highlights professional journals that educators can use to locate reviews of children's literature, lists of books on particular topics, articles on using literature in the classroom, and research on children's literature. Section III contains annotations of many professional books on children's literature which focus on theoretical foundations, literature discussion and response, broad surveys of children's literature, sociopolitical and cultural issues, genre studies, literature across the curriculum, collections of teaching activities, and bibliographies of children's and adolescent literature. Each section of the book contains research or professional resources aimed at elementary and middle school contexts, specifically preschool through grade 8. (RS)

This book discusses the American short story composite, or short story cycle, a neglected form of writing consisting of autonomous stories interlocking into a whole. This study takes into consideration, to a greater degree than earlier criticism, the short story composite as an open work, emphasizing the tension between the independent stories and the unified work, between the discontinuity and fragmentation, on the one hand, and the totalizing strategies, on the other. The discussion of the genre is illustrated with references to numerous American short story composites.

Comparative Literature is both the past and the future of literary studies. Its history is intimately linked to the political upheavals of modernity: from colonial empire-building in the nineteenth century, via the Jewish diaspora of the twentieth century, to the postcolonial culture wars ofthe twenty-first century, attempts at "comparison" have defined the international agenda of literature. But what is comparative literature? Ambitious readers looking to stretch themselves are usually intrigued by the concept, but uncertain of its implications. And rightly so, in many ways: even theprofessionals cannot agree on a single term, calling it comparative in English, compared in French, and comparing in German. The very term itself, when approached comparatively, opens up a Pandora's box of cultural differences. Yet this, in a nutshell, is the whole point of comparative literature. To look at literature comparatively is to realize just how much can be learned by looking over the horizon of one's own culture; it is to discover not only more about other literatures, but also about one's own; and it is toparticipate in the great utopian dream of understanding the way nations and languages interact. In an age that is paradoxically defined by migration and border crossing on the one hand, and by a retreat into monolingualism and monoculturalism on the other, the cross-cultural agenda of comparativeliterature has become increasingly central to the future of the Humanities. We are all, in fact, comparatists, constantly making connections across languages, cultures, and genres as we read. The question is whether we realise it.This Very Short Introduction tells the story of Comparative Literature as an agent of international relations, from the point of view both of scholarship and of cultural history more generally. Outlining the complex history and competing theories of comparative literature, Ben Hutchinson offers anaccessible means of entry into a notoriously slippery subject, and shows how comparative literature can be like a Rorschach test, where people see in it what they want to see. Ultimately, Hutchinson places comparative literature at the very heart of literary criticism, for as George Steiner oncenoted, 'to read is to compare'.ABOUT THE SERIES: The Very Short Introductions series from Oxford University Press contains hundreds of titles in almost every subject area. These pocket-sized books are the perfect way to get ahead in a new subject quickly. Our expert authors combine facts, analysis, perspective, new ideas, andenthusiasm to make interesting and challenging topics highly readable.

Colonial Latin American Literature: A Very Short Introduction

A significant catalyst to the launch of colonial literary studies came in the 1960s
with the novelists of the Latin American Boom, that is, the burst of first-rate novels
accompanied by their translations and the internationalization of their readership.

A vivid account of the literary culture of the Spanish-speaking Americas from the time of Columbus to Latin American Independence, this Very Short Introduction explores the origins of Latin American literature in Spanish and tells the story of how Spanish literary language developed and flourished in the New World. A leading scholar of colonial Latin American literature, Rolena Adorno examines the writings that debated the justice of the Spanish conquests, described the novelties of New World nature, expressed the creativity of Hispanic baroque culture in epic, lyric, and satirical poetry, and anticipated Latin American Independence. The works of Spanish, creole, and Amerindian authors highlighted here, including Bartolom? de las Casas, Felipe Guaman Poma, Sor Juana In?s de la Cruz, and Andr?s Bello, have been chosen for the merits of their writings, their participation in the larger literary and cultural debates of their times, and their resonance among readers today. About the Series: Combining authority with wit, accessibility, and style, Very Short Introductions offer an introduction to some of life's most interesting topics. Written by experts for the newcomer, they demonstrate the finest contemporary thinking about the central problems and issues in hundreds of key topics, from philosophy to Freud, quantum theory to Islam.
