"A six-volume work of literary exploration by more than one hundred distinguished scholars and critics in Western and Eastern Europe and North America. The theme of these volumes is the relationship between literature and the cultural forces out of which it emerges; the materials are the primary sources of literature--society, language (including the rise of national literary languages), ideas and ideologies, aesthetic conventions--and the ways in which these have interacted in different cultures and at different periods of history. The work offers at once an investigation of the writer and his world and an insight into the aspirations of civilized man from classical times to the present, " (front flap). The editors are both professors at the University of Sussex; one in English, the other Comparative Literature.
