Though Brandes exerted himself to bring a cosmopolitan awareness of the wider literary world to his countrymen, his most influential work, the politically progressive Hauptströmungen der Literatur des neunzehnten Jahrhunderts, dealt only with France, Germany, and England. He saw his own literature, apparently, as too much of a tributary rivulet to be included with the "main streams" of his century's literature. Mads Thomsen's map has room for "major" and "minor" literatures alike and develops new coordinates that other worldly mapmakers will want to employ.
