The Role of Literature in Fostering International Relations.
Crowder, William W.
The author listed four possible avenues for fostering international relations: individual contacts; letters, tapes, etc.; broadcasts and telecasts; and literature. Literature was described as an excellent means of communication and as a vehicle for creating good will, promoting understanding, and clearing up misconceptions. Several ways is which literature fits into the role of fostering international relations were mentioned: (1) literature can promote an awareness of the similarity of problems between nations; (2) literature can reveal man's quest for peace, although the route may seem hazy and circuitous; and (3) literature can help people to see the humane qualities of others. Suggestions are presented for effectively utilizing literature in this role. References are included. (NH)
