Without Copyrights

Piracy, Publishing, and the Public Domain

Robert Spoo

Modernist Literature and Culture

  • Provides a thorough historical survey of the impact of U.S. copyright law on transatlantic modernist authors
  • Documents the growth and development across time of the American public domain, as shaped by the historically protectionist and formalistic U.S. copyright law
  • Gives fresh insights drawn from unpublished materials-letters by Joyce, John Quinn, Ezra Pound, Sylvia Beach, John M. Price, and others-and makes extensive use of hitherto unknown legal archives
