Anisimov stated in 1959 that, in the period following the October Revolution, the leading talents of world literature came to the side of the Socialist Revolution, since Socialist literatures associated with the new reality were rapidly developing not only in the Socialist world, but also in the capitalist world, where the best part of literature has joined battle to change reality. However, in the past decades the Socialist side of World Literature has not gotten the proper attention in World Literature studies.

Subject Area: Latin Americans & Latinos - Identity Issues & Cultural Stereotypes
Cultural, geographical, political, social, emotional, linguistic, and economic borders, among others, define and determine different aspects of our identities, cultures, and social lives along with literatures and arts. In a world charmed by 'globalization', interdisciplinary studies in humanities and social sciences has thrown further lights on the definitions, conceptualizations, roles and functions of borders.
