 Japanese Literature (Rexroth)
Modern Japanese Literature is, as a job of editing, equally judicious, equally comprehensive, with the same high standards of translation.
This is the besetting sin of most modern Japanese literature derived from the native tradition.
This review of Donald Keene’s Anthology of Japanese Literature and Modern Japanese Literature (Grove Press, 1955 and 1956) originally appeared in The Nation (15 December 1956) and was reprinted in With Eye and Ear (Herder and Herder, 1970).

 Canadian literature (1899) by Robert Barr
It may be said that I am putting literature on a low level when I place it on a cash basis; but an author must live if he is to write, and he must eat if he is to live, and he must have money if he is to eat.
In literature he waits until a definite judgment is pronounced outside of Canada; then your educated Canadian knows it all.
But the unfortunate thing for a young Canadian endeavouring to make his way in literature is, that until he leaves his own domicile and has achieved commendation from other people, he has no chance whatever of making any impression on the second-hand opinion of his educated fellow-countrymen.

 glbtq >> literature >> Decadence
From its beginning, the nineteenth century in England had a purposeful homosexual literature of considerable bulk, both male and female, though it was fettered by oppression.
Several artists and art critics of the nineteenth century achieved a self-aware homosexual identity that is expressed in both their lives and their works, but lesbianism is only rarely depicted in terms of identity during this period.
The symbolist movement in painting and literature, which flourished in Europe from 1886 to 1905, was the first self-consciously queer movement in Western art history.

Within Mexican American literature the theme of migration has followed a different course.
We will trace the historical course of "migration" and the ironic turns it has taken by beginning with memoirs written in the 19th century as Mexicans were displaced from their homes in California.
We will then examine how this literature has developed in the twentieth century through the poetry, short stories, and novels of Chicano/a writers, including Amirico Paredes, Gloria Anzaldza, Arturo Islas, and Helena Viramontes.
