Giles GunnShades of the Planet is a distinguished and challenging contribution to a growing body of criticism that seeks to internationalize the study of American writing. When English departments throughout the United States forsake old national coordinates to devote themselves to the study of all, or at least most, of the literatures written in English, something significant has happened. These essays, written by some of the leading representatives of the discipline, enact a variety of ways to engage with this development. This is the right book at the right time.
