  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.

 Vanguard - Arts: T H E   A R T S:What is Nigerian literature?
AT the Kampala Conference on African Literature in 1962, the Nigerian critic, the late Obi Wali raised what was to prove to be a profound, even if rhetorical question in his article, “Dead End of African Literature?” His concerns were around the language question.
Literature itself is an identity marker, but it does seem that geography has upstaged consciousness and aesthetic perception in how we are beginning to define the new Nigerian literary canon.
But of course, I suspect that their decision to exclude them in the first place is merely an excuse to create a phalanx of causes and effects that would justify a blatantly retrograde culture of silencing the absent and the unrepresented.

Ernest Hemingway remarked that the Nobel Prize for Literature he received in 1954 should have been awarded to her.
Although she suffered from chronic spinal syphilis, emaciation, and the physical frailty attendant to these conditions, Dinesen continued to lecture and give interviews in her final years.

 Amazon.com: The Power of Delight: A Lifetime in Literature: Essays 1962-2002: Books: John Bayley,Leo Carey   (Site not responding. Last check: )
This extensive collection of criticism attests to the breadth of his knowledge, his range of interests and his generosity as a reader of the great literature of the 19th and 20th centuries.
Bayley began teaching English literature at Oxford in 1955 and soon thereafter began writing reviews, mutually beneficial pursuits that have made him an exceptionally agile reader and a graceful critic.
Astute not only in matters of aesthetics but also in the ways literature mirrors, and, perhaps, effects social change, Bayley is at once worldly and companionable.
