Abstract

Since the Age of Enlightenment in Europe, much scholarly work has been done on “thinking China”. A result has been the most contradictory representations which attempt to reconcile “philosophical China” with “Oriental despotism”, or an eternal aesthetic and consensual China with a more unpredictable and disturbing vision of the country. To break free of these tenacious clichés, Anne Cheng proposes that we listen carefully to what Chinese authors actually have to say. After all, is China not h...

Abstract

Along with the theoretical or traditionally historical question “What is literature?”, the critical and political question “What can literature do?” begs an answer. What value do contemporary society and culture ascribe to literature? What utility?

Is this still relevant to us today?

Abstract

This long tradition would certainly not be a reason in itself to keep or restore the subject, had it not something to do with the subject itself. All of the associations between the past and literature, all of the signs that point towards an essential link between the notion of literature and a feeling for the past, are crystallized in medieval literature. The curiosity that medieval literature has aroused since it was rediscovered at the dawn of Romanticism presupposes such associations. The...

Abstract

At a very early stage, Japanese civilization asserted itself in a relationship of “linguistic competition” with Chinese, in both the religious, the literary, and the intellectual spheres. This cultural symbiosis linked to the shaping of a language, that Jean-Noël Robert has called hieroglossia, was the primary source of the speech that Yasunari Kawabata delivered upon receiving the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1968: By drawing on Japanese Buddhist poetry, he placed himself in the Zen traditio...

Abstract

Serbia’s national movement of the 1980s and 1990s, the author suggests, was not the product of an ancient, immutable, and aggressive Serbian national identity; nor was it an artificial creation of powerful political actors looking to capitalize on its mobilizing power. Miller argues that cultural processes are too often ignored in favor of political ones; that Serbian intellectuals did work within a historical context, but that they were not slaves to the past. His subjects are Dobrica Ćosić ...
