 Reading Online - Reviews: American Children's Literature
Murray is at her best when discussing the literature of the late seventeenth through nineteenth centuries, periods usually given only cursory treatment in the textbooks used in children's literature courses taken by preservice and inservice teachers.
Much of this literature is didactic in nature and reveals with striking clarity the evolving conception of childhood and the virtues dominant groups sought to transmit to American youth as the country itself was transformed from an isolated group of colonies to a world power.
The message of nineteenth-century children's literature that girls and women inhabit a separate and quite unequal realm from boys and men was massively reinforced by the textbooks of that century, as Elson's (1964, p.

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.

In 1973, she was invited by MESA (The Middle East Studies Association of North America) to go on a lecture tour in Canada and the US, on a Ford Foundation Fellowship.
It was in 1980, as Visiting Professor at the University of Texas, which she came to the final realization that the paucity of Arabic literary and cultural material in world languages, which largely lies behind the misrepresentation of Arab/Islamic culture in the West, must be faced with determination.
She feels that a study of the roots of the large corpus of Arabic literature, one of the richest in the world, will lead not only to a greater understanding of Arabic culture on the whole, but also to a deeper understanding of how literature, both prose and poetry, develop as a universal creative activity.

 Nobel Prize in Literature 1973 - Press Release
The Australian Patrick White has been awarded the 1973 Nobel Literature Prize "for an epic and psychological narrative art which has introduced a new continent into literature", as it says in the Swedish Academy's citation.
White's growing fame is based chiefly on seven novels of which the earliest masterly work is The Aunt's Story, a portrayal imbued with remarkable feeling of a lonely, unmarried, Australian woman's life during experiences that extend also to Europe and America.
He is the one who, for the first time, has given the continent of Australia an authentic voice that carries across the world, at the same time as his achievement contributes to the development, both artistic and, as regards ideas, of contemporary literature.

His lectures are devoted to detecting the elements of style and structure in some of the most remarkable novels of European Literature.
In this volume, Nabokov fights against all interpretive lenses, he denounces the sociological, political, and autobiographical perspectives on literature, arguing that a true reader should pay attention to the detail of the author's narrative, to the artistry and creativity, and not get drawn into banal generalizations.
Nabokov's main love was literature, but since he was not in the English Department, he could not teach American literature, so he gave courses on European literature.

 Strugatsky Brothers
The Strugatsky brothers, Boris and Arkadii, rode the crest of the science fiction wave in 1973.
Their early works, such as Noon: 22nd Century (1962), offered a sunny exaltation of science that was attuned Soviet rationalism; The Way to Amaltheia (1962) featured intrepid cosmonauts that appealed to readers in the age of Gagarin.
If science fiction was a massively popular form of Soviet literature in 1973, one that inspired unease among literary officials and captured a readership much broader than traditional science fiction, it was because it functioned as dissidence of a different sort.
