Abstract

THE COMPAKATIST their declaration of "the death of everydiing" (7), as well as their indulgence (by way of critical theory) in "meaningless intellectual games" (8). Other proposals for bringing comparative literary study into a broader multicultural perspective include "refounding die humanities on the sciences," developing a semiotic method for cross-cultural study, and using an intertextual approach to contextualize the heterogeneity ofvarious Latin American literatures. The theoretical and methodological differences between the essays in this volume and the ACLA report edited by Bernheimer reveal that defining me current status of comparative literature is fraught with many polemical negations and contestations. The subject clearly needs further judicious study and discussion. Christine Kiebuzinska Virginia Polytechnic and State University YVES CHEVREL· Comparative Literature Today: Methods and Perspectives.
