  George Orwell: The Prevention of Literature
In Communist literature the attack on intellectual liberty is usually masked by oratory about "petty-bourgeois individualism," "the illusions of nineteenth-century liberalism," etc., and backed up by words of abuse such as "romantic" and "sentimental," which, since they do not have any agreed meaning, are difficult to answer.
Literature has sometimes flourished under despotic regimes, but, as has often been pointed out, the despotisms of the past were not totalitarian.
Throughout the whole of the Middle Ages there was almost no imaginative prose literature and very little in the way of historical writing; and the intellectual leaders of society expressed their most serious thoughts in a dead language which barley altered during a thousand years.

 James T. Farrell: American Literature Marches On (1946)
One way of interpreting literature is by describing it as an imaginative trial of the consciousness of man. In imaginative representation and re-creation, man goes through the trial of his times, the trial of his past and his present, and in doing this, he anticipates his future as best he can.
We see suggestions of this in Russian literature, in the succession of characters who are described in such convincing human terms, and who modelled or tried to model their lives, for good or for ill, on a philosophy, a set of ideas.
The major theme of Russian literature of the nineteenth century is a moral one — that of revealing in various ways the effort of men to find consistency between their ideals and their actions.

 Ancient Literature of the Tamils - Father Xavier S. Thaninayagam   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-15)
With Greek and Latin, Tamil shares the misfortune of having lost the vast portion of its ancient literature, but while Greek and Latin have yet their drarnas, epics, and historical, philosophical and forensic prose, it is almost exclusively the lyric and heroic and bardic poetry of ancient Tamil that has survived.
While it is given to the student of comparative literature to trace the origins of Sanskrit literature in the hymns of the Vedas, and the early attempts of the Grecian bards in the Homeric poems, of the origins of Tamil literature, he can find little trace or historical account.
Literary criticism of Tamil poetry is a new field of study, for histories of Tamil literature have until recently been preoccupied with disputes regarding chronology, and with proving or disproving the veracity of fabulous accounts that have grown around literary origins and lives of poets.

 Rene Wellek - premier scholar of literature
It is likely that he is the premier scholar of literature in modern times because he combined all-round mastery of  the specialisms of modern literary studies, with encyclopaedic reading in several languages, clear writing, a humane vision and commitment to reason.
In 1935, he moved to London to lecture in Czech language and literature, funded by the Czech government until the German invaders terminated the project.
After Theory of Literature was completed in 1949 his major focus was a multi-volumed history of modern criticism (eventually eight volumes) dealing with developments in France, England, Germany, Italy, Russia and America.

Literature to be supplemented with film, art, and critical readings.
However, for as much as Derrida’s writing and thinking appear to have been received in the humanities and social sciences over the past 40 years, there is also the sense that he has not yet been received; he has been resisted, and, in some examples, reviled.
With these interrogations in mind, and bearing also in mind their inexhaustible, possibly unanswerable condition, we will proceed to pull at certain threads from the vast text of Derrida, exploring in only the most adumbrated fashion the contours of what might be called his thinking and writing.

 Williams, Raymond
He was concerned to understand literature and related cultural forms not as the outcome of an isolated aesthetic adventure, but as the manifestation of a deeply social process that involved a series of complex relationships between authorial ideology, institutional process, and generic/aesthetic form.
He was a theorist of literature who himself wrote novels; an historian of drama who was also a playwright; and a commentator on TV and the mass media who himself regularly contributed to the medium in a variety of ways.
For him, unlike so many academics, the medium of television was a crucial cultural form, as relevant to education as the printed word.

 Hermann Hesse, Text of the Nobel Prize Award 1946
This year's Nobel Prize in literature has been awarded to a writer of German origin who has had wide critical acclaim and who has created his work regardless of public favour.
It should not be overlooked, however, that his extraction as well as his personal connections had always justified Hesse in considering himself as much Swiss as German.
The youthful rebellion against the inherited piety that nonetheless always remained in the depth of his being, was repeated in a painful inner crisis, when in 1914 as a mature man and an acknowledged master of regional literature he went new ways which were far removed from his previous idyllic paths.

You could say the first Nobel for a Web-based computer game design was awarded to novelist Hermann Hesse -- who received the Prize for Literature in 1946 for his novel, Magister Ludi...
It's not strictly accurate, of course, to say his Nobel was for game design -- but it does get a point across: that the design for a game, the "Glass Bead Game", was central to Hesse's book.
Literature is a marvelous thing, and sometimes a very great writer will write a book that seems extraordinarily prescient to those who live fifty or a hundred years later.
