Product Description


"Quite what Weltliteratur meant (to Goethe and his age) and what it means (or might mean) to us are still very live issues, if only for the reason that "globalization", if it exits at all, is not a state of a process, something still in the making. Goethe's idea was itself cast in the form of a thought-experiment, a groping reach for a barely glimpsed future. ... By the same token, what we make of it today is necessarily open to indefinitely extended reflection and debate." -- Christopher Prendergast
