DescriptionWorld Literature (formerly Survey of non-Western Literature) focuses on varied readings from multiple genres. The readings are diverse and allow for chronological, generic, geographical, or thematic organization by instructors. This text is collected from several copyright-cleared resources and its readings would serve as the basis for my ENG 195: Survey of non-Western Literature course at Jefferson Community College. The balance of the readings for ENG 195 come from non-Western cultures, although there are some key texts from Western cultures. See the List of Changes for more specific information on the readings. To create the course, I adopted Lumen Learning's Introduction to Literature course shell, whose How to Use This Collection is authored by Thomas Chester and which operates with a CC-BY license and was provided by Ivy Tech Community College.
