Editorial Reviews


"Cognard-Black's study engages and extends transatlantic studies in significant ways. She resists the 'antagonist thesis'. . .that nineteenth-century American writers felt a sense of inferiority to their British counterparts, suffering a sort of Bloomian 'anxiety of influence.' Cognard-Black argues instead that the transatlantic relationships of Stowe, Eliot, and Phelps were not simply examples of British influence on American writers. . . , but demonstrate literary collaboration and interdependence."
--Whitney Womack Smith
Nineteenth-Century Gender Studies (2009)
