Unable to be determined
We must distinguish very clearly between national, international, and comparative approaches. [...] My own greatest hope is for 'international' as distinct from 'comparative' literature: an approach which sees the literary work within its own context, but in such a way as to draw out what are likely to be matters of permanent and universal importance.
