Короткое описание книги

Against World Literature: On the Politics of Untranslatability argues for a rethinking of comparative literature focusing on the problems that emerge when large-scale paradigms of literary studies ignore the politics of the ';Untranslatable'the realm of those words that are continually retranslated, mistranslated, transferred from language to language, or especially resistant to substitution.

In the place of ';World Literature'a dominant paradigm in the humanities, one grounded in market-driven notions of readability and universal appealApter proposes a plurality of ';world literatures' oriented around philosophical concepts and geopolitical pressure points.

The history and theory of the language that constructs World Literature is critically examined with a special focus on Weltliteratur, literary world systems, narrative ecosystems, language borders and checkpoints, theologies of translation, and planetary devolution in a book set to revolutionize the discipline of comparative literature.
