Editorial Reviews


An inventive, exciting anthology of American literature that promises to make teaching and taking a survey course a global adventure! Collages of clustered texts around thematic nodes suggest creative juxtapositions certain to spark student interest. Familiar classics and less-known texts are well balanced, and the digital platform brings the American survey course into the twenty-first century of collaborations. -- Susan Stanford Friedman, author of Planetary Modernisms: Provocations on Modernity Across Time

This is a vital anthology, both in conception and execution. For students and faculty alike, it will create an unprecedented sense of the dynamic force fields of American literature. I'm especially impressed by the anthology's fluid movement across media platforms and geographical divides. -- Rob Nixon, Princeton University

With the inimitable vision we have come to expect from her, Dimock has assembled a nimble model for reading American literature beyond U.S. borders and traditional periodization, across both space and time. This vision of American literary history as an international, outward-facing, worldly tradition is timely and needed. -- Anna Brickhouse, University of Virginia
