Although designed to accompany "The Bedford Anthology of World Literature," there is so much useful and interesting background material in this site that it is useful for any literature study. Included are materials on "Culture and Context," an interactive map which directs the user to materials relevant to specific countries or areas, and timelines. One of the most interesting features is a section called "World Lit in the 21st Century," which makes connections between themes in specific pieces of world literature from across the ages, to events, people or ideas of our time. The set of LitLinks provides biographies of writers from around the world and across the ages.
