About the Authors
  • Comparative Criticism addresses itself to the questions of literary theory and criticism, to comparative studies in terms of theme, genre movement and influence, and to interdisciplinary perspectives. This new volume takes 'Myth and mythologies' as its central theme. Articles include: the Shadow of Ulysses beyond 2001; Genesis: a tale of a heel and a hip; Myths of 'High' and 'Low': the Lyrical Ballads 1798–1998 and Myths of the Indies: Jane Austen and the British Empire. The winning entries in the 1997/8 BCLA/BCLT translation competition are published, as well as a special bibliography on the works of H. G. Adler.

    • Includes a wide range of comparative topics and interdisciplinary debates
    • Features substantial bibliographies on individual writers and specialist themes for the year
    • Publishes winning entries from the 1999 BCLA/BCLT translation competition
