17 editions published in 1983 in 3 languages and held by 230 libraries worldwide

The theory sketched in the first chapter is then, in four subsequent chapters, applied to The French Lieutenant's Woman by the English author John Fowles, Letters by the

This work is a critical evaluation of the concepts of convention and innovation as applied in the study of changing literary values, hierarchies and canons.

The merits of both approaches are discussed and an attempt is made to combine them and to regard systems of literary communication primarily as systems of conventions. Specific cases of changing conventions and innovation are illustrated with examples from the field of versification (Rimbaud), reception studies (Pus

Literature for Europe? ( Book )
9 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 91 libraries worldwide
In Literature for Europe? leading scholars from around Europe reflect on the role played by literature, and by the study of literature, in the constant re-negotiation and re-construction of cultural identities in Europe implied by the accession to the European Union, in the early years of the twenty-first century, of fifteen new member states, with the accession of a number of Balkan states impending, and Turkey waiting in the wings, while at the same time transatlantic relations of the EU to the USA are hotly debated, in politics as in culture, China and India awake as economic giants, and globalization is upon us. At the same time, two of the earliest signatories to the treaties eventually leading to the European Union rejected a proposal for a European Constitution, and linguistic, religious, and ethnic dividing lines show even in some of Europe{u2019}s oldest nation states. How do literary texts, genres, and forms, thinking about them and teaching them, respond to and shape ongoing processes of European self-understanding in our era of globalization? The volume seeks to answer these questions by charting key developments in a number of fields crucial to the emergence of a European common literary 2space3: literature and cultural value systems, literature and cultural memory, literary history, translation, the impact of the new media and the information age on matters of literature and identity, and the impact of the postcolonial. Literature for Europe? is a thought-provoking tour d{u2019}horizon of cutting-edge developments in the relationship between literary studies and 2the matter of Europe,3 and suggesting an exciting agenda for literary studies in Europe. It will be of interest to everyone working in European studies and/or European literature
Caribbeing : comparing Caribbean literatures and cultures by Kristian van Haesendonck( Book )
4 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 79 libraries worldwide
From wide-ranging overviews of the entire region to close readings of specific works, this volume opens a fascinating window on the literatures and cultures of the Caribbean, covering texts in the multiplicity of languages used in the wider Caribbean: Spanish, English, French, Dutch, Portuguese, and the regions many creoles. Authors and works discussed range from luminaries such as Derek Walcott to hitherto practically unknown works in Antillean creole languages. Underlying is the idea to foster the study of the Caribbean literary, artistic and visual text through a comparative lens, a firm proposal to think beyond the persisting linguistic barriers and scholarly divides in the field. As such, this book brings a new approach to the Caribbean embracing the regions linguistic multiplicity and complexity without eschewing the many theoretical challenges and obstacles such a scholarly endeavor entails. Because of its ample scope this book will appeal to scholars and students working on the Caribbean and Latin America, but also to those interested in the broader fields of postcolonial and cultural studies

15 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 76 libraries worldwide
How Far is America From Here? approaches American nations and cultures from a comparative and interdisciplinary perspective.

The various articles here gathered interrogate the very notion of "America": which, whose America, when, why now, how? What is meant by "far"--Distance, discursive formations, i
