  • Introduction: Literary Texts and Contexts: Comparing the World and the
           World of Comparison
    • Abstract: The contributors to this special issue demonstrate innovative ways to explore comparative literature and world literature, which we have examined under the rubric, "Literary Texts and Contexts: Comparing the World and the World of Comparison." This is not an issue seeking consensus, but one that brings scholars from different parts of the world to discuss the theory and practice of literature, its texts and contexts, from theory to film and television. National, comparative, world, and other designations for the study of literature all come into this debate. This issue, then, is a forum in which diversity and difference express themselves.Translation has long been part of intellectual, cultural, and literary ... Read More

  • Thoughts That Do Lie Too Deep for Tears: Comparative Literature Versus
           World Literature
    • Abstract: Perhaps the self-same song that found a path Through the sad heart of Ruth, when, sick for home,She stood in tears amid the alien corn…What difference does it make if you read, teach, or write about a given piece of literature in the context of comparative literature or, alternatively, in the context of world literature' Both comparative literature and world literature tend to presuppose that you understand a given work better if you set it against other works as a means of identifying similarities and differences. Literary study, in my strongly held view, must be focused, above all, on the interpretation of individual literary works. Reading a few poems word by word, carefully, interrogatively, is worth much more ... Read More

  • The Three Futures of World Literature
    • Abstract: La multiplication des lecteurs, c'est la multiplication des pains. Le jour où le Christ a trouvé ce symbole, il a entrevu l'imprimerie. … Dans Christ faisant éclore les pains, il y a Gutenberg faisant éclore les livres.Cela représentait la République, ou le Progrès, ou la Civilisation, sous la figure de Jésus-Christ conduisant une locomotive, laquelle traversait une forêt vierge.Comme les exilés, ridicule et sublime…It must be a distressing thing to have been scooped by Bouvard and Pécuchet. One might happily acknowledge being anticipated by Flaubert, the supreme literary artist and practitioner of strategic irony, but his two copyists, those hapless incarnations of petit-bourgeois ignorance and literalism, are a ...

  • What Is Left of Comparative Literature and World Literature' Notes on
           International Literature, Its Concrete Universality and Enigmacity
    • Abstract: The names, and eventually the notions, of world literature and comparative literature are often contrasted, although they share fields of research. Today, these terms should be first viewed as academic labels designating literary studies that address international and/or interlinguistic and/or intercultural issues with no restrictive references to languages, nations, cultures and continents. Both notions are somewhat outdated. World literature, which cannot be disassociated from Goethe's Weltliteratur, referred to the ontology of Romantic literature and the expansion of the book trade, which began the universalization of literatures. The ontology of literature and the rise of the book trade were not considered ... Read More

  • Comparative Literature: Can This Marriage Be Saved'
    • Abstract: Let me start this essay with a disclaimer. I loved Comparative Literature (CL). It was a late blooming romance. I did not even know CL existed. I wanted to study a number of things, including religion, myths, anthropology, folklore, French literature, the Classics, and Indian philosophy. I had not felt fully at home in these places; then some bureaucrat at the University of Chicago thought I might be a comparatist. It was love at first sight. What entranced me was that, unlike so many other fields, CL was not dogmatic. One could really do whatever one wanted, as long as one did it seriously. In the 1980s, CL was the place to go to be your own person.Because I was slightly more mature, I approached this relationship ... Read More

  • Worlding Comparative Literature: Beyond Postcolonialism
    • Abstract: Edward Said is one of the iconic comparative literature scholars of the second half of the twentieth century, particularly known for his almost single-handed invention of postcolonialism as a critical method. Part of Said's method consisted of re-reading and commenting upon colonial classics. Such reinterpretations not only addressed classics of fiction, but also engaged with the works of historians and geographers. In what follows, I will focus on Said's handling of the work of the British geographer Halford Mackinder, whom Said mentions three times in Culture and Imperialism (1993),1 albeit only second-hand, so to speak, as each time this happens via references to Neil Smith's 1984 Uneven Development: Nature ...

  • Aesthetic Imaginary: Rethinking the "Comparative"
    • Abstract: My coinage of the term aesthetic imaginary follows the line of a few thinkers in a field that I would like to call "imaginary studies": Cornelius Castoriadis's social imaginary, Michèle Le Dœuff's philosophical imaginary, and Marguerite La Caze's analytical imaginary. The space and the opportunity here do not grant me much room to explain what the different kinds of imaginary mean and potentially imply, and also descant on the points of engagement that aesthetic imaginary might have with them; this is something that I shall undertake to accomplish elsewhere.1 However, within the spatial restrictions of this paper, I will try to bring out the nature and philosophy of my proposition and expand on the intricacies that ...

  • The Location of World Literature
    • Abstract: In the last ten years or so since the publication of David Damrosch's groundbreaking book What Is World Literature' (2003), one has come to recognize the need to begin to locate the various facets of the currently prevalent Anglo-Saxon discourse of world literature with more conceptual rigour. The first imperative, it seems to me, is to pose the question: where is "world literature" ontologically'2 Some believe it to be an attestable network of texts that, aided especially by the process of globalization, enter into myriad relations—however complex and mediated, but still ultimately demonstrable—that reveal (or sometimes conceal) the hard facts of canon formation, cultural propaganda, ideological indoctrination ...

  • Texts and Images in a National, Comparative, and World Context
    • Abstract: Knowledge is a matter of parts and the whole. We speak about texts and images, compare and agglomerate them into categories. We break texts into fiction and non-fiction, into disciplinary fields like philosophy, literature, and history. These divisions are also temporal or contextual because literature or letters became more specific with the development of the German and, later, global research university, so that departments and faculties from the nineteenth century onward developed in literary, historical, and philosophical fields in which specialists came to guard their texts, sometimes the way dragons guarded their hoard. Often, texts by the same author could be studied in these and other fields, but with ... Read More

  • World Poetry, without Baedeker: The Very Idea
    • Abstract: Poetry is perhaps a more neglected genre of world literature than others, probably because poetry does not translate well. Poetry seems to be stubbornly rooted in its native language and embedded in its original cultural context. Thus, it is paradoxical to speak of world poetry as being uprooted or rootlessly "generic," as some sceptics have claimed. But there is a sense in which poetry is one, even though languages are many, as the Russian poet Andrei Voznesensky asserts. World poetry has been described and evoked as international, transnational, postcolonial, global, or planetary. All these labels capture some aspects of what world poetry might be, yet they are not quite the same as what is meant by "world ... Read More

  • Personal Geographies and Liminal Identities in Three Early Modern Women's
           Life Writings about War
    • Abstract: Throughout literary history, war has been a recurrent theme in life writing. This article discusses life writing as an important aspect of comparative literature or world literature, and focuses on three early modern women's geographical experiences and liminal identities as found in their life writings: Marguerite of Valois (1553-1615), a Catholic and Queen consort of Navarre who served as a supporter of Protestants during the French wars of religion, Queen Henrietta Maria of England (1609-69), and Lady Brilliana Harley (1598-1643), the wife of a Parliamentarian representative of England. These three noblewomen used their writings as means of constructing their identities in the public sphere.While describing the ... Read More

  • "Love for the World": Shakespeare, National Literature, and Weltliteratur
    • Abstract: To become morally independent of one's formative society […] is the grandest theme of all literature, because it is the only means of moral progress, the establishment of some higher ethical concept.Earlier conceptualizations of world literature manifest forms of determinism that were prevalent in the nineteenth century, including Goethe's idea of world literature as consequences and effects of the global practice of translation, and Karl Marx's reading of world literature in the context of global capitalism, the significance of which had yet to be fully understood for the emerging international community of literature.1 However, neither Goethe nor Marx had anything specific to say about world literature. What does ... Read More

  • Shakespeare's Global Weirding: Macbeth's Posting of "Anthropos,"
           Cinematization, and the Era of Extinction
    • Abstract: From Middle English werde, wierde, wirde, wyrede, wurde, from Old English wyrd, wurd ("that which happens, fate, chance, fortune, destiny, Fate, the Fates, Providence, event, phenomenon, transaction, fact, deed"), from Proto-Germanic *wurdiz ("fate, destiny"), from Proto-Indo-European *wert- ("to turn, wind") […] Weird was extinct by the 16th century in English. It survived in Scots, whence Shakespeare borrowed it in naming the Weird Sisters, reintroducing it to English. The senses "abnormal," "strange" etc. arose via reinterpretation of Weird Sisters and date from after this reintroduction.One benefit of formulating thoughts for a Chinese audience on Shakespeare—as this paper had originally been1—is not just ...

  • Articulations in Translation at the Intersection of World Literature and
           Popular Culture: Film and TV Adaptations of Ishiguro's Never Let Me Go
    • Abstract: With the rapid development of globalization and new media technologies, the last two decades have witnessed the opening of a more pluralistic global literary space in which voices from and about the peripheries have been widely heard and appreciated. Discussions of world literature have increasingly attracted attention as scholars seek further understanding of this new literary space. Scholars such as David Damrosch have extended the concept of "world literature" as literature circulates beyond its "culture of origin" (4), and shifted the emphasis from the literariness of a text to a set of relationships including its production, circulation, and translation (6). This shift blurs the boundaries between historically ... Read More

  • Vision and Self-Consciousness in The Picture of Dorian Gray
    • Abstract: In Chapter Seven of The Picture of Dorian Gray, Dorian returns home after severing his relationship with Sybil Vane and aimlessly wandering around the town during the night. He is heartbroken that Sybil, once an artist who self-consciously performed her roles, is now merely acting out her own personality. Entering his house, his eye "fell upon the portrait Basil Hallward had painted of him" (Picture 89), and the expression of the portrait is different from what he remembers:The quivering, ardent sunlight showed him the lines of cruelty round the mouth as clearly as if he had been looking into a mirror after he had done some dreadful thing.He winced, and, taking up from the table an oval glass framed in ivory ...

  • Time Has Begun: Hu Feng's Poesis in Socialist China, 1937-50
    • Abstract: This paper examines the poetry of the Marxist poet and critic Hu Feng 胡风 (1902-85) within the context of the modernizing transformations that took place in the People's Republic of China (PRC), with a particular focus on Hu's claims of the political effects of the Chinese Revolution (1927–50) on creative practices during the 1940s and early 1950s, specifically, the phenomena presented by his poesis. Hu, a fellow traveller of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP), came into his own in the 1940s during a series of debates with his colleagues in the Party. In his career as a poet and critical intellectual, literary editor and publisher, Marxist-in-exile in socialist China, and political prisoner of the CCP, Hu practiced ... Read More

  • Literature, History, and Narrative: A New Historicist Reading of Yan
           Geling's "Celestial Bath"
    • Abstract: The relationship between history and literature has long been a key element in literary studies: Marxism, old historicism, and new historicism all relate text to context, and comparative literature as a discipline has stressed literary history and textual analysis. Since the 1960s, there has been an increased emphasis on the role of history in the study of literature and culture. Beginning in the 1980s, new historicism has made significant contributions to comparative and world literature, history, and culture. This article discusses Yan Geling's short story "Celestial Bath" by combining text and context and taking a historical approach to textual analysis; the discussion takes Aristotle into account, and also ...

  • National Self-Critique Prompted by Immersion in (An)Other Culture:
           Goldsworthy Lowes Dickinson, Xu Zhimo, and Pearl Buck
    • Abstract: Three writers connected across the Atlantic and Pacific produced cogent critiques of their native countries in part as a result of their immersion in other cultures, which provided them with critical distance from which to observe domestic mores and policies. Goldsworthy Lowes Dickinson (1862-1932) was a British historian, political philosopher, writer, and a Cambridge don. His idealization of China was proportional to his disillusionment with the British Empire, especially its imperialist policies in China. Xu Zhimo 徐志摩 (1897-1931) was the most popular Chinese poet in the 1920s and 1930s. With the help of Dickinson, Xu enrolled as a special student at King's College, Cambridge University in 1925; he was fascinated ... Read More
