  Korean Literature (Character of Korean Literature, Korean Classical Literature, Modern Literature of Korea)
The literature of the Koryo period is marked by an increased use of Chinese letters, the disappearance of Hyangga, and the emergence of Koryo kayo (Koryo songs) which continued to be transmitted as oral literature until the Choson period.
Korean modern literature was formed against the background of the crumbling feudalistic society of the Choson Dynasty, the importation of new ideas from the West, and the new political reality of rising Japanese imperial power in East Asia.
The change from traditional to modern literature during the Enlightenment period was largely due to the effects of the New Education and the Korean Language and Literature movement.

 1953
Among musicians of his generation William Kapell, just thirty-one on Sept. 20, 1953, was one of the great ones.
His career was at the point where he was no longer considered a mere boy genius but was recognized by his colleagues as a mature artist.
It was only in the last two years that he had gained real access to the grand repertory of the piano, to the concertos of Mozart and Beethoven and Brahms and Chopin and to the suites of Bach and Debussy, and that he had been genuinely successful with that repertory.

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.

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.

This essay was published in the October 31, 1953 issue of The Nation.

Some slight signs of political relaxation towards the cultural scene had even begun to appear before then, but these were accompanied at the same time by highly sinister developments (the execution of the Yiddish writers; and the so-called “Doctors’ Plot”).
The Thaw period overall is usually deemed to stretch from 1953 to 1964: that is to say from the death of Stalin, to the ousting of Khrushchev.
The classic émigré writer Ivan Bunin (who had died in 1953) was published, though the bringing back into the fold of any such figures remained extremely selective.

 OUP: UK General Catalogue
Advice literature (etiquette manuals, guides to hygiene and house management, and treatises on upbringing) enjoyed massive popularity in Russia between the late eighteenth and the late twentieth centuries.
It reflected changing attitudes to appropriate behaviour in private and public, to the acquisition of possessions, and not least to national identity (for many Russians, reading how-to books was seen as a way of 'learning how to be a Westerner').
Written or translated by members of the cultural elite trying to encourage what they saw as civilized behaviour, advice literature was also a conduit for changing views of mass readers and of their place in society.

 Bookbird: a journal of international children's literature
With it my tenure as editor seems to have come full circle: the social issues raised here are linked to those in my very first issue on girls and women, because as women's role has expanded, men's has had to change.
With each issue, I have attempted to encourage research, focus the spotlight on countries whose children's literature is not well known-such as Brunei Darussalam, Namibia, Bangladesh, Colombia, Mongolia, Czech Republic, and Nepal-and select topics that would bridge national, cultural, and linguistic barriers.
This team approach is an excellent development for the continued success of Bookbird, because the work will be shared by the four editors, and the journal will benefit from their combined expertise.
