Teaching the Literature of the Global Village.
Schmidt, Carl P.; Alphonso-Karkala, John B.
New Jersey Association of Teachers of English, v2 n2 pl-18 Apr 70
One article, "Non-Western Literature: Cultural Diversity and the Reader's Response" explores some of the difficulties encountered in studying non-Western literature: the different conceptions of time in Eastern thought, the ways in which these differences affect Indian and Japanese literature, and the necessity of altering the manner of study if Western students are to understand non-Western literary worlds. "Indo-English Fiction: 1847-1947," the second article, discusses Indian authors and the literature which they have produced in English--early social chronicles, female autobiographies, and novels--as well as authors' translations of their Indian works into English. Short bibliographies are included for Indian, Chinese, Japanese, African, and general global literature. (MF)
