Award description

Those books eligible for the Harry Levin Prize emphasize literary history or criticism as opposed to theory; in the spirit of comparative literature, they are engaged with more than one national literature or with issues of literary study in general. Editions and commentaries on texts are not normally considered for this prize.

The Harry Levin and René Wellek Prizes, given in alternate years, are the USA's most prestigious book awards in the discipline of comparative literature.
