Transatlantic Traffic and (Mis)Translations, Paperback / softback Book

Transatlantic Traffic and (Mis)Translations Paperback / softback

Edited by Daniel Maudlin, Robin Peel


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.
