From the PublisherThe sheer scope of this study achieves its purpose . . . An impressive synthesis of this essential subject, Cohn's work is a welcome addition to Inter-American comparative study.
By facing South and looking toward the Spanish Americas, Cohn reconfigures our understanding of southern literary expression and the cultural forces influencing it. This is a rich and provocative study, beautifully written and deeply insightful.
—Robert H. Brinkmeyer, University of Mississippi
If the task of the comparatist is to create a territory of shared experience in which to trace meaningful patterns of filiation and separation, then Deborah Cohn is a comparatist par excellence. History and Memory in the Two Souths is a major contribution to the study of American literature as a hemispheric matter.
