Curious about history’s greatest novelists? Interested in contemporary writers making headlines? Striving to understand fundamental texts, like the Koran or Plato’s Republic, from a literary perspective? Want the skinny on brilliant poets and authors yet to be discovered outside their country? Just looking for a good book?

World Literature is a dynamic subject that eliminates boundaries. Vast literary movements and modest stories; pop lit and themes of the human condition; authors rooted in a country and world citizens – they all belong here. This is the topic for fiction, poetry, and non-fiction from around the globe. Comments and suggestions are always welcome!
