  MSN Encarta - Print Preview - Italian Literature
From the beginning of the 19th century until 1870, when the evacuation of French troops from Rome removed the last trace of foreign domination, the prevailing influence in Italian literature and in almost every phase of Italian life was nationalism, in its particular Italian form called the Risorgimento.
Early 19th-century Italian literature was marked not only by nationalism but also by a lingering classicism and by a new spirit of romanticism, which, emphasizing history and tradition, encouraged nationalism.
It was a revolt against a literature obsessed by the past and its own past achievements, and with its roots in books rather than in life.

 Language and Literature: A symbiotic relationship - Teaching language through literature: Problems and Principles (Part ...
As far as the current practice of teaching literature is concerned, most students tend to escape from the text and make extrinsic, biographical information about the author a substitute for an intensive reading of the text.
The result is that teaching becomes transmissive in its orientation and fails in the expected task of stimulating the students to go and read more widely and intensively and then to form their own judgments.
In my view, the two aims of teaching English literature in the third world should be (i) to strengthen the learner’s feel for the language and ultimately to enable him to use it with force and effectiveness and (ii) to enrich and energize his inner sense of being.

 Nobel Prize in Literature 1931 - Presentation Speech
If an interested foreigner were to ask one of Erik Axel Karlfeldt's countrymen what we admire most in this poet and on what qualities his national greatness depends, it would at first seem easy to give an answer.
However, if one attempts to find independent comparative criteria, he is forced to admit that even the treasures of the so-called great literatures have only rarely been enriched by such jewels as Karlfeldt has created in a so-called minor language.
If we look back on Karlfeldt's notable career from its début in 1895 and follow it through the works of three decades, steady though limited in size by his austere standards, we see very clearly how this man used his talents with a rare instinct for the fruitful, the solid, and the genuine.
