A collection problematizing American and British intellectual transactions

This rich and diverse collection of essays explores the literary and ideological cultural exchanges between Britain and New England from 1610 to 1910. The contributors embrace material studies of written and printed texts, performance, the novel, expository writing, and early film. Through intriguingly fresh readings of the work of writers ranging from Anne Bradstreet to Walt Whitman and from John Winthrop, Jr., to Jack London, the book examines the intellectual and aesthetic exchanges produced by transatlantic cultural traffic. The focus and detail of the essays make an important contribution to the ongoing debates about British-American transatlantic literary exchanges, highlighting the conversions, adjustments, and translations in the transnational circulation of culture.

This book will appeal to a broad spectrum of scholars in American, British, and Transatlantic literary studies.

Reviews / Endorsements

“Bringing together new work by leading scholars and dynamic fresh voices in transatlantic studies, this volume puts the cultural traffic and translations between England and New England under the microscope in a sequence of revealing comparisons across three centuries. A very welcome addition to the field.”—Susan Manning, Grierson Professor of English Literature and director, Institute for Advanced Studies in the Humanities, University of Edinburgh

“Maudlin and Peel’s timely book captures the challenge and excitement of three centuries of literary and cultural exchanges and interactions between Great Britain and the United States. The remarkably wide chronological and generic range of the essays—moving from seventeenth-century poetry to early twentieth-century film—represents a new, dynamic, and welcome contribution to the burgeoning field of transatlantic studies.” —Bridget Bennett, University of Leeds, author of Transatlantic Spiritualism and Nineteenth-Century American Literature
