REVIEW: Romanian Literature as World Literature
Romanian Literature as World Literature, edited by Mircea Martin, Christian Moraru, and Andrei Terian aims to fill a major gap in local literary research and, most importantly, to offer a more exhaustive and diversified view on Romanian literature in relation to the international stage of canonized authors from different cultures. While the virtually disregarded position that Romania takes on this ‘stage’ could be reckoned as shortcoming, this contribution provides a significant plethora of different views and insights on Romanian literature, as well as its impact in relation to Europe’s undying figures of literature.
Keywords: World Literature, Romanian Literature, international canon, minor literature.
