 Comparative Literature: - A current perspective - education - Yemen Times
A study of the world literature aims at expansion of knowledge, taste, aesthetic sense, and innovation of ideas.
According to Henry Remak “Comparative Literature is a study of literature beyond the confines of one’s particular country, and the study of the relationships between literature on the one hand and other areas of knowledge and beliefs on the other”.
If comparative literature is concerned with the studies beyond the boundaries of countries and is based on relationships, then it has definitely to be a multilingual study based on cultural integration.

 Francis Phillips reviews The Catholic Revival in English Literature, 1845-1961, by Ian Ker
The Catholic Revival in English Literature, 1845-1961, by Ian Ker, Gracewing.
The six writers included in this most interesting study are John Henry Newman, Gerard Manley Hopkins, Hilaire Belloc, GK Chesterton, Graham Greene and Evelyn Waugh; 1845 was the year of Newman’s conversion to Rome; 1961 was the year Waugh finished his masterpiece, the Sword of Honour trilogy.
It is Ker’s achievement to demonstrate the subtle links between these writers and to illuminate for the reader how Catholicism, ‘at once so ancient and so new’ as St Augustine says, can be a profound creative stimulus and not the strait-jacket that some would have us believe.
