- COMPARATIVE LITERATURE is the oldest U.S. journal in its field. The journal was created by a group of American scholars in part to replace Revue de litterature comparée, which had been forced to suspend publication during the Second World War. Since the first issue, COMPARATIVE LITERATURE has of course evolved - expanded, really - in ways that have reflected changes in the field it represents: the advent of the "new criticism" in the early 1950s, the growing influence of (mostly French) literary theory in the late 60s and 70s, the "globalization" of comparative literary studies in the 80s and 90s, among them.
