This truly global introduction to literature anthology offers students an exhilarating view of contemporary world literature. Presenting a multi-cultural and international focus, the book features works of fiction, non-fiction, poetry, and drama by writers from more than sixty countries. Half of the authors featured are women. Ninety percent of these stories, poems, essays, and plays have been published within the last 20 years, and represent a wide variety of cultural and ethnic backgrounds. Seven thematically organized chapters move from the personal sphere ("Coming of Age", "Gender") to social and spiritual issues ("Class," "The Individual and the State," and " Spiritual Dimension"). This allows readers not only to relate to these works in terms of their own experiences, but to see commonalities between their experiences and those of people in substantially different cultural circumstances.
