Abstract

??? COMPAKATIST published, an important aspiration of comparative scholars in the South Twenty years ago, when the first issue of The Comparatisi was came to be realized. Established in 1977 as an outlet for the scholarly work generated by the Southern Comparative Literature Association-- the only regional organization devoted to comparative studies in the United States--The Comparatisi evolved under the editorship of Jeanne J. Smoot (1977-1982) of North Carolina State University, and Mechthild Cranston (1983-1991) of Clemson University, from a venue for confermentors as Harry C. Rutledge, who conceived the idea for this journal, and Patrick Brady, who baptized it, The Comparatist has remained faithful to its name, featuring articles that make consistent use of a ence proceedings into a journal in its own right. With such distinguished comparative and intercultural approach to explore works from different cultural areas, media, or national traditions of literature. My predecessors, Jeanne J. Smoot and Mechthild Cranston, were particularly successful in defining a number of thematic areas that came to be associated with this journal, such as the comparative study of literary and cultural movements, literature and the arts, relationships among European and North American literatures, and translation theory and practice.
