First - I have not read the book in its entirety. Literature, per se, is not my primary focus at this point in life. I do feel, however, and hope, that the few comments I'm capable of making will provide some meagre assistence to those seeking information on this important collection and on Curtius, himself. I started reading this substantial work, nearly 500 pages, in connection with a course of Proust that I was teaching this past Spring. The famous essay on Proust, which so inspired T.S. Elliot, and was instrumental in introducing the Recherche to the Anglo-American audience, is sadly NOT included in this volume. I have been unable to locate it in translation. However, there is included probably the only brief, in depth, study of Charles Du Bos extant in English, for whom Curtius makes a substantial case being at least part of the model for Swann (although Proust rejects such a notion). Topics examined in(looking inside)this book: Virgil, Goethe, Schlegel, Hofmannsthal, George, Calderon, Hesse, Balzac, Emerson, Unamuno, Du Bos, Gasset, Alaya, Joyce, Eliot, Toynbee, Guillen, Cocteau and numerous others, evidently filling in a lot of gaps.
Curtius is a redoubtable scholar. One can always learn something from him. As is well known, his magnum, European Literature and the Latin Middle Ages, has attained the status of an essential resource in Comparative Literature, really a universal prerequisite for serious study in the field. And it must be remarked that the essays on Virgil in this volume are awesome. Having read the Aeneid in Latin, nearly half a century ago in High School, I was inspired here to read it again. He shares with Onians, and few others, what seems to be authentic insight into the roots of European Culture.
As interesting as Curtius' insights into literature, culture, and consciousness remain, one must also note, albeit unfortunately, his political orientation. Curtius was what has been euphemistically called on this site a "social conservative". He was a German, very much into a certain glorification of what he viewed as Germanic culture. Writing in 1930, he refers to the proto-fascist, Stefan George, as "... our last great poet []". Curtius appears not only to have survived in Nazi Germany, but to have, in a sense, quietly thrived. Now, the situation one is thrust into, one's "throwness", is not to be held against the man. Yet, in Curtius' perspective, one does feel a certain rightward leaning that one does not ever sense in reading Heidegger, the notoriously avowed and unrepentant Nazi. Curtius' Eurocentrism thus cuts both ways: at once informative and somewhat creepy.
