World literature is on the rise both as an answer to the needs of revitalizing literary studies and as a necessary result of global connectedness of cultures and literatures in today’s world. Despite the new excitement of a rising tide in literary studies, the question still remains to be asked: What is world literature? What should it include? Is circulation beyond its culture of origin the sufficient criterion for a work to become part of world literature? What is the function of literary criticism in the formation of a world literature canon? What is the relationship between world literature and Chinese literature? These are some of the crucial questions to be explored in this discussion of world literature as a most exciting new phenomenon in literary and humanistic studies today.
