This is the third and last of three "smaplers" of essays selected from Review of National Literatures, the prestigious series published between 1970 and 2001 and distributed in over 40 foreign countries and the US by Council on National Literatures.  

The essays chosen for this third volume reflect CNL's interest in expanding the traditional "comparative" canon by presenting European authors, works, and literary movements in a new light or from an unusual point of view.  Among the essays chosen for this third "sampler" is Victor Lange's Expressionism: A Topological Essay; Eldred Jones' Racial Terms for Africans in Elizabethan Usage; Egbert Krispyn's Netherlamdic Studies in the Seventies; Frank J. Warnke's Bibliographical Spectrum: Holland; P.S. Guptara's The Impact of Europe on the Development of Indian Literature; and essays on modern Russian literature, Canadian fiction, Machiavelli's Christian pessimism, the Italian Postmodern; and an unusual contribution by the famous French author Jean-Louis Barrault, Familiar Memories of Paul Claudel (adapted and translated by Henri Peyre, for many years distinguished professor in the Graduate School of The City University of New York, who is also represented here with his own essay, Paul Claudel: Bibliographical Spectrum).
