An Ecology of World Literature: From Antiquity to the Present Day, Hardback Book

An Ecology of World Literature: From Antiquity to the Present Day Hardback

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 Bola o 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.
