  Short History of German Literature (The Nation, February 13, 1879)
Hosmer has succeeded in writing a very readable and valuable book, the best book for the general reader, on a subject extremely wearisome if treated in detail.
Of mediocre authors German literature is full, and the memories of students and the general public should not be burdened with their names or characteristics; these can be safely relegated to works not intended for continuous reading--to encyclopedias, dictionaries, and indexes.

  Literature of the Philippines Summary
Literature during Spanish colonial rule consisted of both religious and secular literature, prevalent during the first two centuries, and a nineteenth century reformist and revolutionary literature that reflected the clamor for change and independence.
Literature reaffirming religious values was dominant, including forms such as the sinakulo, a play on the passion of Christ, the ejemplo, which spoke of saints, and the komedya, which featured battles between Christians and Moors.
Literature from the 1980s and 1990s saw renewed interest in regional language, the publication of anthologies of feminist and gay literature (for example, Filipina I, 1984), and programs geared toward developing writers among peasants and workers in the hope of creating a truly national literature.

 Arabic Literature - MSN Encarta
The most outstanding example of Arabic literature is the Koran, which Muslims consider to have been revealed by God to his Prophet, Muhammad, in the Arabian Desert in the 7th century CE, and which they revere the world over.
It is generally accepted among scholars of Arabic literature that the expedition of Napoleon to Egypt in 1798 marked the beginnings of the renaissance in the Arab world.
While the 19th century may rightly be considered a period of renaissance during which Arabs revived their classical genres and came into contact with Western literature and civilization, mainly through the medium of translation, the 20th century witnessed the real birth of modern Arabic literature.

 The Literary Forms in Philippine Literature
Literature in this period may be classified as religious prose and poetry and secular prose and poetry.
American influence was deeply entrenched with the firm establishment of English as the medium of instruction in all schools and with literary modernism that highlighted the writer's individuality and cultivated consciousness of craft, sometimes at the expense of social consciousness.
With the new requirement by the Commission on Higher Education of teaching of Philippine Literature in all tertiary schools in the country emphasizing the teaching of the vernacular literature or literatures of the regions, the audience for Filipino writers is virtually assured.

 I. F. Annensky
There Annenskii attempts to institute his innovative ideas about pedagogy in a series of reforms focused on the teaching of languages and literature.
Annensky was much more interested in, and his poetry had much more in common with, the Acmeist poets who rose from the wake of Symbolism towards the end of his life.
Annensky is again disappointed by the relative silence the book receives both from the official press and the literary underground.

 Drama Authors in Depth - Henrik Ibsen - Meyer Literature
Henrik Ibsen was born in Skien, Norway, to wealthy parents, who lost their money while he was a young boy.
Among his most produced and admired works are A Doll House (1879), Ghosts (1881), An Enemy of the People (1882), The Wild Duck (1884), and Hedda Gabler (1890).
The common denominator in many of Ibsen’s dramas is his interest in individuals struggling for an authentic identity in the face of tyrannical social conventions.

 Amazon.com: Kafu the Scribbler: The Life and Writings of Nagai Kafu 1879-1959: Books: Edward Seidensticker   (Site not responding. Last check: )
Japanese literature has been regarded for far too long in a patronising light as 'exotic' and 'obscure'.
Mention Japanese literature and the average Westerner is likely to think of Kazuo Ishiguro - a citizen of Britain who writes in English - or, if they are particularly well read, Mishima Yukio.
An example of this arrogance is the fact that of some of the stories, he does not deign to translate the whole text, judging, "This does not spoil the dramatic unity of this piece, for it had none to begin with." Surely that is for the reader to decide.

 Albert Einstein | Physicist
Albert Einstein was born on March 14, 1879 in Ulm, Wurttemberg, Germany.
During this period he completed an astonishing range of theoretical physics publications, written in his spare time, without the benefit of close contact with scientific literature or colleagues.
The most well known of these works is Einstein's 1905 paper proposing "the special theory of relativity." He based his new theory on the principle that the laws of physics are in the same form in any frame of reference.

For the most part, the literature we will be looking at is not "taught" to children so much as offered to them -- whether it is being re-told or read aloud or acted out or simply recommended.
We will accordingly consider book illustrations and video narratives along with printed words, asking how best to present a particular poem or fairy tale or novel to a particular child.

Alfred Nobel demanded idealism from an author to be judged worthy of the Prize he established.

After the splendour of the Greek theatre, it is principally among the English and the Spanish that a national dramatic art has developed.

 Library of Southern Literature: Regionalism and Local Color
Although it may be argued, and rightly so, that their works are universal in their implications, each writer's work is firmly rooted in the southern region.
In the decades since the 1930s literature and the other arts that grew out of southern culture have flourished.
Such writers as Flannery O'Connor, Carson McCullers, and, more recently, Eudora Welty and Walker Percy, have continued to place characters and action in the South.

 gray the bruce: Freight of the Gazetti
The news industry, at the time still embryonic, printed fictitious letters as though they were true [5] and publications sometimes took verse form, purporting in a few cases to be ballads composed by condemned, notorious criminals.
Put another way, Jonson occupied a societal niche equivalent to today's news columnists and radio talk show hosts, roles associated more with the modern news media than with literature or entertainment.
However, The Cambridge History of English and American Literature suggests Jonson might have taken issue with an early publisher of corantos, Captain Francis Gainsford, for the latter's portrayal of his conduct in the Low Countries.
