Comparative Literature Studies brings you the work of eminent critics, scholars, theorists, and literary historians. Their essays range across the rich traditions of Europe and North and South America and examine the literary relations between East Asia and the West. They also explore movements, themes, forms, the history of ideas, relations between authors, and the foundations of criticism and theory. Each issue includes reviews of significant books by prominent scholars.

CLS is published under the auspices of the Department of Comparative Literature at The Pennsylvania State University.  One of its regular issues every two years will concern East-West relationships and will be edited in conjuncture with members of the College of International Relations at Nihon University.

About the Editor:

Thomas O. Beebee
was born in Santa Monica, California, in 1955. Seeing that the future was blackouts, he fled as far east as possible, and received his B.A. from Dartmouth College and both his M.A. and Ph.D. from the University of Michigan. He taught German at Bowdoin College from 1984 to 1986, when he joined the faculty at Penn State. He became Associate Professor in 1991, and Professor of Comparative Literature & German in 2000. His fields of specialization in research and graduate teaching are: European literature of the early modern period; criticism and theory; epistolarity; translation studies; and law and literature. His publications include the books Clarissa on the Continent, The Ideology of Genre, and Epistolary Fiction in Europe, and articles such as “Orientalism, Absence and the Poème en Prose,” “Bob Dylan: Balladeer of The Apocalypse,” and “Letters of the Law: Rhetoric and Fiction in The Artes Dictaminis.” Other publications include articles on Kafka, Brecht, da Cunha, Abdelkebir Khatibi, Amos Oz, Christa Wolf, and letter fiction of the early modern period. In addition, he has just completed a book , True Imaginary Places: Landscapes of Nation in Modern European and American Fiction, and tomes on New World Apocalypse and on law and German literature are under way.
