  YLM vol i p110/115 Manx Literature
The literature of the Isle of Man, exclusive of translations from other languages, consists almost entirely of poetical compositions, which are of two kinds, Ballads and Carvals, or Carols.
Some of them possess considerable merits, and a printed collection of them would be a curious addition to the literature of Europe...The Carvals are preserved in uncouth looking smokestained volumes...They constitute the genuine literature.of " Ellan Vannin."

 CATHOLIC ENCYCLOPEDIA: French Literature
Hence the fondness of the literature of the seventeenth century for general ideas and for sentiments that are common to mankind, and its success in those kinds of literature which are based on the general study of the human heart.
Hence the contempt of the seventeenth century literature for all that is relative, individual and mutable; in lyric poetry, which appeals primarily to the individual sentiment, in the description of material phenomena, and the external manifestations of nature, it falls short of success.
For thorough understanding of the development of French literature in the seventeenth century, we must consider it in three periods: (1) from the year 1600 to 1659, the period of preparation; (2) 1659-1688, the Golden Age of classicism; (3) 1688-1715, the period of transition between the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries.

 The Tibetan Book of the Dead: The Art of Dying
Tibetan literature devoted to the topic of death and dying in the context of Buddhist meditative practice is immense.
This literature can be organized into several related genres that comprise not only those texts that came to be treated as canonical (see Section 1 above) but also include the instructional advice, dam-ngak (gdams ngag), on yogic and contemplative practice derived from the esoteric experiences of advanced Tantric Buddhist teachers.
Characteristically, these instructional systems provide important insights into how the ordinary dying experience, and the subsequent intermediate bardo period, can be altered and purified through a process of intense training, involving the radical manipulation of physical and psychological energies to bring about transformative and extra-ordinary states of consciousness.
