Literatures of Asia, Africa, and Latin America: From Antiquity to the Present
This extraordinary anthology gathers together a tremendously broad selection of representative, authoritative writings -- spanning antiquity to the present -- from the most ancient non-Western civilizations of Asia, Africa, and Latin America. It combines extensive introductions, headnotes, and bibliographies with excellent contemporary translations of the best contemporary and classical writers. The selections reflect literary, religious, and philosophical traditions and reveal--despite cultural differences--the universality of life experiences.
