    schema:reviewBody ""Mapping World Literature explores the study of literature and literary history in the light of globalization and argues that international canonization of books and authors can be used as an instrument for textual analysis of world literature. Thomsen uses a distinctive method in combining the concept of literary constellations and canonization, which allows for literary analysis that balances the formal and thematic elements of texts with their impact on the international literary scene. This is introduced through an overview of the concept of world literature including a discussion of present critical positions and then a specific analysis of two cases, literature written by migrant writers and the literature of genocide, war and disaster."--Jacket." ;
