9789042037052: Provocation and Negotiation: Essays in Comparative Criticism (Textxet: Studies in Comparative Literature)

This collection of essays takes on two of the most pressing questions that face the discipline of Comparative Literature today: "Why compare?" and "Where do we go from here?". At a difficult economic time, when universities all over the world once again have to justify the social as well as academic value of their work, it is crucial that we consider the function of comparison itself in reaching across disciplinary and cultural boundaries. The essays written for this book are by researchers from all over the world, and range in topic from the problem of translating biblical Hebrew to modern atheism, from Freud to Marlene van Niekerk, from the formation of one person's identity to experiences of globalisation, and the relation of history to fiction. Together they display the ground-breaking, ideas which lie at the heart of an act as deceptively simple as comparing one piece of writing to another.
