World Republic of Letters by Pascale Casanova

Book Description

The "world of letters" has always seemed a matter more of metaphor than of global reality. Rejecting facile talk of globalization, with its suggestion of a happy literary "melting pot," Pascale Casanova exposes an emerging regime of inequality in the world of letters, where minor languages and literatures are subject to the invisible but implacable violence of their dominant counterparts.

Kafka, Angry Poet by Pascale Casanova Kafka, Angry Poet, Hardback (April 2015)

Franz Kafka was one of the most influential writers of the twentieth century. His writing contributed greatly to existentialism, and the term "Kafkaesque" is now synonymous with the literature of the surreal, the complex, and the illogical. This book dives deep into Kafka's mind, examining his motives rather than the results.
