Glossary of Literary Theory
Aspects of literature which make it appeal to readers across history:
the basic emotions, thoughts, attitudes, and values that are endemic to
the human situation irrespective of time and place. The term "concrete
universal" refers to the idea that literature achieves the universal
through the concrete depiction of the particular.
