Abstract:

"The discipline of comparative literature has long sought to develop effective theories and methods of broad-based study, but ideas based on national canons in a handful of Western European countries no longer seem adequate even for the study of national literatures themselves. Comparing the Literatures integrates comparative, postcolonial, and world-literary perspectives and seeks common ground. Looking both at institutional forces and at key episodes in the life and work of comparatists who have struggled to define and to redefine the fundamental terms of literary analysis, from language to literature to theory to comparison itself, Damrosch offers a comprehensive overview of the history and current prospects of comparative studies in a globalizing world"--
