This unit explores how the practice of comparative literary studies is related to language and culture. With the shrinking of distances due to travel and technology in the modern age, what makes different literary traditions across the world similar or different? This unit reflects on these issues by looking at a range of exemplary literary works translated into English from Asian, European or Middle Eastern languages, and examines them in the context of translation studies, national literatures, and different cultural and narrative traditions.
