As Others Read Us: International Perspectives on American Literature

Synopsis

As Others Read Us provides an important cross-cultural perspective. By examining the role of tradition, government policy, and bureaucracy in determining which texts are read and esteemed, the contributors enrich our understanding of the formation and propagation of alternative literary canons. By analyzing the influence of American literary texts on the values and aspirations of citizens from other countries, the essayists further illuminate the complex relationship between literature and politics.
