The Classical Moment is a reexamination of the concept of a supreme moment in the literatures of Greece, Mesopotamia, India, China, Japan, Korea, and Vietnam. Taking the case of Greece as its starting point, it examines what such 'moments' have in common, how they are created, and what effect they have on subsequent literary creation.

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
In light of the tenacity of the idea of a classical moment<-->a unique and temporal event involving Greek and Latin literature<-->against all formal and subtle attacks, scholars working with other literatures consider whether, and if so how, such a notion operates there. After an introduction describing the wake of the Greek classical moment, they explore Mesopotamia, India, China, Heian Japan, Korea, and Vietnam. Annotation c.
