Comparative Literature: An Overview

Research output: Working paperPreprint


Comparative literature is an academic field dealing with the literature of two or more different linguistic, cultural or nation groups (D'haen, Domínguez, & Thomsen, 2012: 57). While most frequently practiced with works of different languages, comparative literature may also be performed on works of the same language if the works originate from different nations or cultures among which that language is spoken. Also included in the range of inquiry are comparisons of different types of art; for example, a relationship of film to literature.
