About the Authors
  • The recently developed field of transatlantic literary studies has encouraged scholars to move beyond national literatures towards an examination of communications between Britain and the Americas. The true extent and importance of these material and literary exchanges is only just beginning to be discovered. This collection of original essays explores the transatlantic literary imagination during the key period from 1660 to 1830: from the colonization of the Americas to the formative decades following political separation between the nations. Contributions from leading scholars from both sides of the Atlantic bring a variety of approaches and methods to bear on both familiar and undiscovered texts. Revealing how literary genres were borrowed and readapted to a different context, the volume offers an index of the larger literary influences going backwards and forwards across the ocean.

    • Exemplary new readings of literary interrelations between Britain and America
    • Will appeal to students new to transatlantic literary studies as well as scholars working in the field
    • Features a range of theoretical and methodological approaches

    "The collection’s answers are rich and varied, and the essayists—themselves a transatlantic assembly—convince that national labels are contingent, as is transatlanticism itself."
    --Journal of American History
