Review of National Literatures: Selected Essays, 1970-2001 - Emergent and Neglected National Literatures
The second of three RNL samplers. This volume contains essays written by experts on some aspect of a literature or author not in the traditional canon or mainstream of literary studies. Culled from the original world-wide RNL series launched by Dr. Anne Paolucci in 1970, these essays are an excellent introduction to literatures that are not easily accessible to scholars working in traditional European literatures. (A third and last sampler will offer RNL essays which deal with the European spectrum.) A short preface by Dr. Anne Paolucci is followed by an Introduction by Gerald Gillespie, Professor Emeritus at Stanford University and former President (now Honorary President) of the International Comparative Literature Association. In his Introduction, Professor Gillespie reviews the history of the unusual series and its parent organization, Council on National Literatures, a project that has been called a pioneer effort. This informative volume should prove a welcome addition to the ongoing dialogue, among literary scholars, on ways and means to promote greater global awareness in literary studies generally, and comparative literary studies, in particular.

Review of National Literatures: Selected Essays
This is the first of three volumes of essays selected from Review of National Literatures, the prestigious annual series of Coucil on National Literatures (1970 - 2001). Praised here and abroad as a pioneer effort and a model of what comparative literary studies should encourage, RNL enjoyed a wide distribution both in the United States and in over forty foreign countries. It offered member libraries and other suscribers carefully prepared overviews of literatures not in the traditional canon as well as unusual approaches to familiar European-authors and literary movements. Included in this first RNL sampler are essays on multi-comparative literary perspectives, Japanese translators of Shakespeare, the Chinese Enlightenment, Hungary's neglected literatures, and three essays about the important work on early America by Justin Winsor, the first librarian of Harvard and co-founder of the American Historical Association.
