  • Globalization has added a fourth dimension to literature. Until recently, the life of a literary work was either local, national, or international, or the three of them together. A global life, however, is something else. Though globalization is an obvious perspective for contemporary scientists, sociologists, economists and politicians, it is still invisible to most literary authors and scholars. Many of
    them have hardly noticed its impact on literature, whereas others refuse to consider it an unprecedented phenomenon. Good literature has always had an international life, they argue. We believe, on the contrary, that there is a radical difference between the international circulation of literature in the past and the globalisation of literature of the last two decades. The reception of
    Petrarch in Renaissance Europe is not comparable to the global circulation of Rushdie, Pamuk and Auster today. The new digital technologies are not a mere extension of traditional printing and publishing, and the role of English as a global language is only superficially similar to the function of Latin as a language of learning in medieval Europe. There is a
    quantum leap between these phenomena that cannot be written off with the dubious wisdom of “it-has-always-been-like-this”. One of the key elements that separates international from global literature is the writer’s relation to his or her community. Never in the past did authors write their works directly for a planetary public. Their readers were always either local – i.e. regional or national
    –, or they belonged to a religious community, as with Christian Latin and Islamic Arabic writing, or a community of scholars. Even imperial authors rarely cared for those who lived beyond the borders of their state. Virgil may have thought of Greek readers, but certainly he never took into account Indian, Persian and Chinese audiences, though he knew these people
    existed. Writing for a global public opens up fantastic possibilities and imposes draconian rules on the authors who follow this path. There are enticing opportunities for the authors in terms of sales and celebrity, and dramatic consequences for form and style.
