about

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.

Editorial Reviews

"Transamerican Literary Relations combines traditional methods of literary study with emergent theoretical frameworks and a vast comparative scope. Brickhouse traces suprisingly and utterly persuasive lines of literary influcence across national borders..." - Hsuan Hsu, Nineteenth Century Studies
