  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.

 "Literature and Science" (Matthew Arnold [1882])
But it is not by any means clear, says he, that after having learnt all which ancient and modern literatures have to tell us, we have laid a sufficiently broad and deep foundation for that criticism of life, that knowledge of ourselves and the world, which constitutes culture.
Literature is a large word; it may mean everything written with letters or printed in a book.
Nay, "has not an Englishman models in his own literature of every kind of excellence?" As before, it is not on any weak pleadings of my own that I rely for convincing the gainsayers; it is on the constitution of human nature itself, and on the instinct of self-preservation in humanity.

 glbtq >> literature >> Canadian Literature in English
Like the mainstream heterosexual literature of Canadian culture, Anglophone gay literature is also extremely balkanized, with the result that what is published by a small press in British Columbia or Saskatchewan is often unknown in Toronto, let alone in Halifax.
Nonetheless, this literature would not exist at all were it not for these same small presses: from Blewointment, New Star, Arsenal Pulp, and Talonbooks in British Columbia, to Stumblejumper in Regina, Blizzard in Winnipeg, Catalyst, Coach House, and Women's Press in Toronto to Gynergy in Charlottetown.
Such conferences as this one and the "Doing It" conference two years later have served to put gay literature on the map in Canada in a way that is very un-American.

 Nobel Prize in Literature 1906 - Presentation Speech
He learned Latin from his father, and Latin literature was to become very familiar to him.
Yet Carducci is without doubt one of the most powerful geniuses of world literature, and such disapproval, voiced also by his compatriots, has not been spared even the greatest poets.
Regardless of the criticism which can justly be launched against him, the irrefutable truth remains that a poet who is always moved by patriotism and a love of liberty, who never sacrifices his opinions to gain favour, and who never indulges in base sensualism, is a soul inspired by the highest ideals.

Literature may perhaps be needed in education, they say; but why on earth should it be Greek literature?
If the instinct for beauty is served by Greek literature as it is served by no other literature, we may trust to the instinct of self-preservation [230] in humanity for keeping Greek as part of our culture.

 H-Net Review: Magdalena Teter on A Traveler Disguised: The Rise of Modern Yiddish Fiction in the ...   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-01)
Given that nineteenth-century Jewish literature was generally to "be of use to the people" and to contribute to the education of the 'unenlightened' and that Yiddish was the spoken language of the Jewish masses in Eastern Europe, the use of Yiddish would seem natural to Jewish authors as their literary medium.
In order to legitimatize Yiddish literature and make it respectable, there was a need to create a "tradition", which Miron traces to "a few writers and journalists" in the 1880s (p.27).
While traditionally seen as "the grandfather" of modern Yiddish literature, Miron argues convincingly that Mendele is wrongly identified with Sh.

 James Joyce - Biography and Works
James Joyce (1882-1941), Irish novelist, noted for his experimental use of language in such works as Ulysses (1922) and Finneganns Wake (1939).
Joyce's technical innovations in the art of the novel include an extensive use of interior monologue; he used a complex network of symbolic parallels drawn from the mythology, history, and literature, and created a unique language of invented words, puns, and allusions.
James Joyce was born in Dublin, on February 2, 1882, as the son of John Stanislaus Joyce, an impoverished gentleman, who had failed in a distillery business and tried all kinds of professions, including politics and tax collecting.
