Until recently, histories of literature have emphasised the seminal role of epic poetry in the development of literary cultures. Thus, relatively little attention has been paid to lyrical poetry, despite the fact of its noticeable presence in the formation of small literatures and the awakening of cultural and national self-awareness. The 14th international conference of the Estonian Association of Comparative Literature aims to explore the role of lyrical poetry in the formation of literary cultures.

More information can be found in the call for papers. Abstracts are awaited by 30 June 2021.
