Book description

This fully updated new edition of The Routledge Companion to World Literature contains ten brand new chapters on topics such as premodern world literature, migration studies, world history, artificial intelligence, global Englishes, remediation, crime fiction, Lusophone literature, Middle Eastern literature, and oceanic studies.

Separated into four key sections, the volume covers:

  • the history of world literature through significant writers and theorists from Goethe to Said, Casanova and Moretti

  • the disciplinary relationship of world literature to areas such as philology, translation, globalization, and diaspora studies

  • theoretical issues in world literature, including gender, politics, and ethics; and

  • a global perspective on the politics of world literature

Comprehensive yet accessible, this book is ideal as an introduction to world literature or for those looking to extend their knowledge of this essential field.
