Comparative literature

Comparative literature is firstly a general subject, i.e. not designed to accommodate the literature of one special nation, but literature, or literary phenomena, in general. It seeks to highlight not just the literature of one particular nation, or the literary work(s) of one author, but selected aspects of literary phenomena, from ancient Greece to the present time as understood in our cultural circles.

Comparative literature is offered for students who are interested in literature and would like to learn more about literary analysis, interpretation, the history of literature and the theory of literature.  We study both classical works and modern authors.
