Overview

Transamerican Literary Relations and the Nineteenth-Century Public Sphere

Arguing for a fundamental reassessment of the literary history of the nineteenth-century United States within transamerican and multilingual contexts, Anna Brickhouse examines a broad array of texts in English, French, and Spanish. She discovers literary influences from Latin American and Caribbean American literatures which made the period a rich era of literary border-crossing and transcontinental cultural exchange.
