American Modernism's Expatriate Scene

The Labour of Translation

Daniel Katz

Published by Edinburgh University Press

Edinburgh Studies in Transatlantic Literatures

  • This study takes as its point of departure an essential premise: that the widespread phenomenon of expatriation in American modernism is less a flight from the homeland than a dialectical return to it
  • Begins with the late work of Henry James, then goes on to examine Ezra Pound and Gertrude Stein, concluding with Jack Spicer, and his peer, John Ashbery
  • Remains in constant dialogue with key recent works on transnationalism, transatlanticism, and modernism
