Valentina Salvatierra
A vast-ranging and educational study of 'literatures' using an overriding ecological metaphor that works surprisingly well.
Warning: The following review is rather long and rambling, a possibly failed attempt to synthesise what I found especially compelling and what I took away from the book. I used strategic bolding to try to call attention to the most important bits.

Beecroft understands literatures as 'techniques or practices of reading texts, and specifically of linking texts together' (loc

This is a thorough study of world literature, working its way through a useful taxonomy of literature at six scales, ascending in size. The claims to an 'ecology' are more gimmick than insight, and a lot of the focus is on antiquity with only the last chapter dealing meaningfully with the present day. This is a shame because I would be interested to see how the more local levels work when it comes to online writing and other alternative means of circulation; it seems to consider that the novel ...more

A really great set of theories on how literatures work across various scales and systems. Introduces a great new set of concepts to play around with. Doesn't hurt that the last chapter on "World Literature" discusses some of my faves -- Bolaño and Ghosh.

Interestingly (and this is where things get a bit ...more

It is a fantastic book, ideal for those trying to decide whether to study literature in one or more languages. Also useful for professors of world literature. The author coins his own terminology to create a clear panorama of the world literature. He also spreads his wings, so to speak, various centuries, embracing and commenting on Classic Chinese literature, passing to Dante's Commedia up to Ghosh's trilogy.
