An Ecology of World Literature: From Antiquity to the Present Day, Paperback / softback Book

An Ecology of World Literature: From Antiquity to the Present Day Paperback / softback

Description

What constitutes a nation's literature? How do literatures of different countries interact with one another?

In this groundbreaking study, Alexander Beecroft develops a new way of thinking about world literature.

Drawing on a series of examples and case studies, the book ranges from ancient epic to the contemporary fiction of Roberto BolaNo and Amitav Ghosh. Moving across literary ecologies of varying sizes, from small societies to the planet as a whole, the environments in which literary texts are produced and circulated, "An Ecology of World Literature" places in dialogue scholarly perspectives on ancient and modern, western and non-western texts, navigating literary study into new and uncharted territory.
