Literary Cultures of East-Central Europe: Junctures and Disjunctures in the 19th and 20th Century

The four-volume History of the Literary Cultures of East-Central Europe is the first transnational study of a complex region that is conceived here as a strip of land between the German and Russian hegemonic cultures, stretching from the Baltic Countries to Bulgaria and Albania and from the Ukraine and Moldova in the East to the Czech Republic in the West. This joint work of 150 contributors from Europe, United States, Canada, and Australia, sponsored by the International Comparative Literature Association, is not a chronological narrative of the period 1800-1989, but an experiment in writing literary histories that acknowledges ruptures as well as transnational nodal conjunctions. Hence the subtitle Junctures and Disjunctures in the 19th and 20th Century.

Romanticism

The Romanticism series in the Comparative History of Literatures in European Languages is the result of a remarkable international collaboration. The editorial team coordinated the efforts of over 100 experts from more than two dozen countries to produce five independently conceived, yet interrelated volumes that show not only how Romanticism developed and spread in its principal European homelands and throughout the New World, but also the ways in which the affected literatures in reaction to Romanticism have redefined themselves on into Modernism. A glance at the index of each volume quickly reveals the extraordinary richness of the series’ total contents.
