Invitation to World Literature


Designed to introduce world literature to general and inexperienced readers, this site provides a selective compilation of secondary material that supplements and explains 13 important literary works...Though limited, the supplementary information is of high quality; the bibliographies, excerpts, and timelines provide useful historical and scholarly contexts for understanding the famous works. The interface is visually appealing, consistent, and organized. Clearly the core of the collection is lively, smart 30-minute films about each work...Well produced yet having a common touch, popular in emphasis yet intellectually focused, informative yet also entertaining, the little films have  the potential to charm a broad audience into falling in love with "world literature." Summing Up: Highly recommended. - C. B. Ewing, University of Illinois.
