Our Mission
Mundus Artium Press and Mundus
Artium: A Journal of International
Literature and the Arts
will seek out in
written form what Matthew Arnold called
“the best that is known and thought in
the world. We are dedicated to
publishing new and accomplished
authors, especially those whose work is
being translated from the lesser-known
languages into English. Our mission is of
necessity one of translation, both of
language and of culture and worldview.
To the extent that such a project can be
a dialogue, Mundus Artium will be a
dialogue. Our catalog of books and our
journal will showcase work that pairs
innovative language and aesthetics with
a global perspective.
