Summary
Comparative literature does not intend to, nor can it, realistically speaking, grow at the expense of the study of national literatures. Furthermore, its principles, methods and areas of investigation have been known, expounded and used long before the first chair of comparative literature was established. Indeed, the "comparative method" is a central ingredient of human thinking, which has been used to varying degrees in literary criticism since Aristotle and Longinus. Yet the practice of comparative literature, as we understand it now, cannot be done any longer by the traditional departments or the specialist in a national literature. We demand of the comparatist today a frankly cosmopolitan training, outlook, objectivity, and devotion to the interrelationships between literatures, genres and artistic media. Whether or not we select comparative literature as a specific area or method of investigation, it does systematically what in previous centuries had been done sporadically, often onesidedly, and usually with a mixture of standpoints and methods
