  At the Cutting Edge of Jewish Studies; The Most Recent Developments in the Field
Hebrew literature since 1948, when the State of Israel was born, is Israeli literature, and every stage in Israeli history - especially the wars of 1948, 1956, 1967, 1973, 1982 the Intifada from 1987 onward, the Gulf war of 1991, and the peace process - is marked by a fairly distinct body of literature.
When this pressure was lifted, one result after 1948 was a body of Hebrew literature that was in its very absorption with narrow state interests, limited and timebound in comparison with the extraordinary diversity and cosmopolitanism of the scattered literature prior to 1948.
Also, the status of pre-1948 Hebrew literature was higher than after 1948 as it was written for and by an elite and was perceived as an essential part of the process of state-building.

 Words Without Borders -> Time, Place, and Identity in the Literature of the “1948 Region”
The 1948 Region is delineated by a specific historical juncture and the momentous events related to it, which has had a pervasive, divisive, and acute influence not only on the culture of the Palestinians inside Israel—who are often referred to as Palestinians inside— but also on Palestinian history as a whole.
The idea of return to the past in Israeli literature rests on a close proximity to the past: It relies in its mechanics and codification on a memory of extreme, saturated suffering, whose closest temporal point of reference is the Nazi holocaust.
Regarding the last characteristic of this new literature— the veracity in representing the actual situation—the language of the new literature is abundant with allusions, but essentially the language is unadorned and direct because it alone is capable of expression the world it describes: violent, searing, vivid.

 MyJewishLearning.com - Culture: Hebrew Literature
From the late biblical period on, Hebrew was not a spoken language, and it was used primarily in religious contexts.
An exception to this rule was the Hebrew literature that flourished in Spain, Provence, and Italy between the 10th and 14th centuries.
At the same time, Zionism was advancing its dream of a new Hebrew culture in Palestine with the developing modern Hebrew language at its core, and these writers received encouragement and inspiration from this movement.

 African Literature
Despite the ignorance of most so called "literati" to the domain of African literature, African literature in fact is one of the main currents of world literature, stretching continuously and directly back to ancient history.
The first African literature is circa 2300-2100, when ancient Egyptians begin using burial texts to accompany their dead.
African Literature gains more and more momentum, and Professor James Ngugi even calls for the abolition of the English Department in the University of Nairobi, to be replaced by a Department of African Literature and Languages.

 Jean-Paul Sartre
Its popularity and that of its author reached a climax in the forties, and Sartre's theoretical writings as well as his novels and plays constitute one of the main inspirational sources of modern literature.
The conclusions a writer must draw from this position were set forth in "Qu'est-ce que la litterature?" (What Is Literature?), 1948: literature is no longer an activity for itself, nor primarily descriptive of characters and situations, but is concerned with human freedom and its (and the author's) commitment.
Literature is committed; artistic creation is a moral activity.

The majority have been representatives of a literature which seeks its natural contacts in the public consciousness, and which, to attain this goal, avails itself of the media lying more or less ready at hand.
It may appear to be contradictory to say that this radical pioneer of form, the initiator of a whole revolution in style within present-day poetry, is at the same time a coldly reasoning, logically subtle theorist, who never wearies of defending historical perspectives and the necessity of fixed norms for our existence.

By action of the 1944 General Assembly of the Church of the Nazarene, a Spanish Department was created to address the need for coordinating and developing literature for the growing Spanish-speaking constituency of the church.

After more than 55 years of ministry, our purpose remains the same: to coordinate the development of holiness literature for all non-English-speaking peoples of the world.

 Lewis Bio & Bibliography
There was, first, Lewis the distinguished Oxbridge literary scholar and critic; second, Lewis, the highly acclaimed author of science fiction and children's literature; and thirdly, Lewis, the popular writer and broadcaster of Christian apologetics.
A sampling of the range and depth of his achievements in criticism, fiction, and apologetics might begin, however, with the first books Lewis published, two volumes of poetry: Spirits in Bondage, published in 1919 when Lewis was but 23, and his long narrative poem, Dymer, published in 1926.
Neither were critical successes, convincing the classically trained Lewis that he would never become an accomplished poet given the rise of modernism; subsequently he turned his attention to literary history, specifically the field of medieval and renaissance literature.
