Women and the Literary World in Early Modern China, 1580-1700 - Daria Berg Summary
Exploring the works of key women writers within their cultural, artistic and socio-political contexts, this book considers changes in the perception of women in early modern China. The sixteenth century brought rapid developments in technology, commerce and the publishing industry that saw women emerging in new roles as both consumers and producers of culture. This book examines the place of women in the cultural elite and in society more generally, reconstructing examples of particular women’s personal experiences, and retracing the changing roles of women from the late Ming to the early Qing era (1580-1700). Providing rich detail of exceptionally fine, interesting and engaging literary works, this book opens fascinating new windows onto the lives, dreams, nightmares, anxieties and desires of the authors and the world out of which they emerged.

Worlding a Peripheral Literature - Marko Juvan Summary
Bringing together the analyses of the literary world-system, translation studies, and the research of European cultural nationalism, this book contests the view that texts can be attributed global importance irrespective of their origin, language, and position in the international book market. Focusing on Slovenian literature, almost unknown to world literature studies, this book addresses world literature’s canonical function in the nineteenth-century process of establishing European letters as national literatures. Aware of their dependence on imperial powers, (semi)peripheral national movements sought international recognition through, among other things, the newly invented figure of the national poet. Writers central to dependent national communities were canonized to represent their respective cultures to the norm-giving Other – the emerging world literary canon and its aesthetic ideology. Hence, national literatures asserted their linguo-cultural individuality through the process of worlding; that is, by their positioning in the international literary world informed by the supposed universality of the aesthetic.
The Literary World of Ronald Walter Klimmek - Ronald Walter Klimmek Summary
Thank you for taking the time to read my stories. I can assure you that reading my works of Art as I call them will provide you with an appreciation for literature and an even deeper one if you already enjoy reading stories and poems. I had an instructor in college who told us that if are to write well, we should write on topics of which we are an authority on. We were also told that our term papers were to be legible and neat and not to throw garbasge at the instructor. If my memory serves me correctly, it was in a Psychology class that I heard this. I’m telling you this because the stories that I’ve written and the poems are drawn in part from my own experiences in life although the fictional stories are just that; fictional. You may notice in my stories that I love the semicolon. I use it a lot. Why? It’s just me. I also respect you the reader and will not throw garbage at you. You are affable enough to read my works and I have every intention of delivering to you my finest literary performance. I realize that you’re probably anxious to begin so I’ll bow out at this point and let you get started with this first frightening tale of suspense and murder which I have entitled, “When Judge Beelzy’s Court Was In Session” It is my deepest hope that you’ll really enjoy this adventure into the Literary World Of Ronald Walter Klimmek.
