For instance, the common igneous rock granite contains (as part of the strict geological definition of the term ‘granite’) between 10% and 35% by volume of the mineral quartz (chemical composition silicon dioxide – SiO2). On the other hand, the igneous rock gabbro (Author(s): The Open University

Introducció a la literatura Europea
No podem parlar d'Europa estrictament com un continent configurat de manera perfecta o, encara menys, d'un departament "ètnic" ni d'una formació política definida i reconeguda. Europa és, per damunt de tot, una unitat històrica conformada a l'edat mitjana i on la cultura hi té un pes fonamental. La literatura d'aquell període va generar uns processos d'identificació més enllà d'unes fronteres polítiques, lingüístiques o socials que en bona mesura persisteixen en l'imaginari actual.
