Comparative Literature involves the study of literature from two or more national and linguistic traditions, allowing students to gain an intercultural and transnational understanding of diverse cultural and literary practices. It allows one to develop a perspective on literature which extends across national and cultural boundaries and chronological periods. The interdisciplinary nature of study across linguistic cultures and academic fields gives you the opportunity to study problems of wider cultural significance. The integrated approach to understanding diversity adopted by a comparatist helps in fostering a holistic view of man and society through literature.
