Product Description


'Transatlantic studies and sensationalism are currently vibrant areas in C19th studies. This volume explores their intersection, gathering together an exciting and original selection of essays. With a welcome emphasis on popular culture, the contributors highlight the many ways in which borrowings, serializations, textual piracy and adaptations reflected social and political differences on either side of the Atlantic, and created new channels of communication between English and American reading publics. This is essential reading for those working in the growing field of transatlanticism.' Kate Flint, Rutgers, University of Southern California, USA 'Scholars of the sensational will find significant information on the cultural anxieties about the foreign, the exotic, the radical, and the enslaved, and students will find thorough scholarship presented in accessible language. This is a valuable addition to the literature on transatlantic literary connections. Summing Up: Recommended. Lower-and upper-division undergraduates; graduate students; researchers; general readers.' Choice '... indicated exciting new paths into a rich and fascinating field of research.' Rivista di Studi Vittoriani 'Transatlantic Sensations will be a valuable resource to scholars of sensation fiction, genre fiction more broadly, and those who study British-American publishing and literary influence, which are the collection's central methodological approaches.' BARS Review ... 'the editors have done a fine job of crystallizing how the transatlantic dimensions of sensationalist fiction, predicated as the subgenre was upon a process of commercial marketing and exchange, formed a central component of the nineteenthcentury novel in both Britain and America.' Victorian Studies
