The Literature of 1880 (The Nation, February 3, 1881)
With great increase in the number of works and widening of the field of literature, a complete review of the literary history of the present day is increasingly becoming difficult.
Of 1880 it must be said, as of the years immediately preceding it, that while there have been produced many works in all departments of literature, there have been none which deserve to be placed in the front rank.

 CATHOLIC ENCYCLOPEDIA: Italian Literature   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-30)
This century in Italy, as elsewhere, is the golden age of vernacular ascetical and mystical literature, producing a rich harvest of translations from the Scriptures and the Fathers, of spiritual letters, sermons, and religious treatises no less remarkable for their fervour and unction than for their linguistic value.
Also in religious literature we have the ascetical letters of B. Giovanni Dominici (died 1419), a strenuous opponent of the pagan tendencies of the classical revival, and the vernacular sermons (1427) of St. Bernardine of Siena.
Political considerations colour most of the literature of the middle of the century, whether it be the historical writings of Cesare Balbo (1789-1853), the satirical and patriotic poems of Giuseppe Giusti (1809-50), the revolutionary lyrics of Gabriele Rossetti (1783-1854), the tragedies of Giovanbattista Niccolini (1782-1861), or the once admired romances of Francesco Domenico Guerrazzi (1804-73).

 Carlo Collodi - Literature Vault - Classic Authors and Literature Online!
Lorenzini had won fame as early as 1856 with his novel In vapore and had also begun intense activity on other political newspapers such as Il Fanfulla; at the same time he was employed by the Censorship Commission for the Theatre.
In 1875 he entered the domain of children's literature with Racconti delle fate, a translation of French fairy tales by Perrault.
In 1876 Lorenzini wrote Giannettino (inspired by Alessandro Luigi Parravicini's Giannetto), the Minuzzolo, and Il viaggio per l'Italia di Giannettino, a series which explored the re-unification of Italy through the ironical thoughts and actions of the character Giannettino.

 Fyodor Dostoevsky - Literature Vault - Classic Authors and Literature Online!
From 1873 to 1881 he vindicated his earlier journalistic failures by publishing a monthly journal full of short stories, sketches, and articles on current events -- the Writer's Diary.
Fyodor Dostoevsky died on January 28 (O.S.), 1881 and was interred in Tikhvin Cemetery at the Alexander Nevsky Monastery, St. Petersburg, Russia.
His work is sometimes characterized as «polyphonic»: unlike other novelists, Dostoevsky is free from «single vision», and although many writers have described situations from various angles, only Dostoevsky has engendered fully dramatic novels of ideas where conflicting views and characters are left to develop even unto unbearable crescendo.

 The Historian: THE GLASGOW ASSOCIATION FOR THE HIGHER EDUCATIO... @ HighBeam Research   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-30)
While maintaining the notion of separate spheres and "differing moralities" for the sexes, a significant portion of the British populace "disliked the idea of women being medically examined by men."(7) This concern was especially prominent in many British colonies, where female missionary doctors were required to examine local women.
The first series of lectures on English literature in Glasgow in 1868 by Professor Nichol were held in the Corporation Galleries to an audience of both men and women.(9) There was a large audience, but many in attendance--including the speaker--remained hesitant about women's place in higher education.
The Association hoped to encourage governesses to continue their education through the Association, but in 1881, the rate reduction for governesses was abolished because the Association could no longer afford to subsidize these fees.

 OUP: UK General Catalogue
The general consensus in Western study of Russia and the Soviet Union has been that understanding of `historical background' is essential to the study of `literature'.
This book is an ambitious attempt to recontextualize Russian literature, and rethink the relations between literature and other cultural forms.
There is also a `keywords' introduction explaining the evolution of concepts of the self, the nation, and `literariness' in Russian culture, and an `Epilogue' outlining the further history of the central themes after 1917.

 Coexistent Gout and Rheumatoid Arthritis
Gout and rheumatoid arthritis are relatively common entities individually; however, the coexistence of these two conditions has been reported rarely in the literature.
But, in fact, there have been few cases reported in the medical literature since 1881, with only five cases adequately meeting the criteria for diagnosis of rheumatoid arthritis and gout.
In an extensive review of the podiatric literature, no previously reported cases were found.

 Familiar Talks on English Literature (The Nation, February 24, 1881)
Histories of English literature are notoriously dull and unedifying books.
The subject which ought to be the most genial and inspiring of all branches of study is more than any other made a mere skeleton on which to hang names, dates, and endless lists of unfamiliar titles, so that it is in the end only a weariness to the flesh.
It is, therefore, refreshing to find a book designed for young readers which seeks to give only what will accomplish the real aim of the study namely, to excite an interest in English literature, cultivate a taste for what is best in it, and thus lay a foundation on which they can build by after-reading.

 Emma Lazarus
Born on July 22, 1849, Lazarus was the fourth of Esther (Nathan) and Moses Lazarus's seven children.
She grew up in New York and Newport, Rhode Island, and was educated by private tutors with whom she studied mythology, music, American poetry, European literature, German, French, and Italian.
Her 1881 essay "American Literature" (Critic) defended American literature against the charge that America had no literary tradition and that America's poets had left no mark.
