9781611688283: A Power to Translate the World: New Essays on Emerson and International Culture (Re-Mapping the Transnational: A Dartmouth Series in American Studies)

This thought-provoking collection gathers a roster of seasoned Emerson scholars to address anew the way non-American writers and texts influenced Emerson, while also discussing the manner in which Emerson s writings influenced a diverse array of non-American authors. This volume includes new, original, and engaging research on crucial topics that have for the most part been absent from recent critical literature. While the motivations for this project will be familiar to scholars of literary studies and the history of philosophy, its topics, themes, and texts are distinctly novel. A Power to Translate the World provides a touchstone for a new generation of scholars trying to orient themselves to Emerson s ongoing relevance to global literature and philosophy.

Review :

"Emerson was always a transnational thinker, and in this respect as in others, we have yet to catch up with him. This fine, wide-ranging volume will be of considerable help. These essays bring one to Emerson from, and allow one to travel out from his texts towards, a variety of geographical, cultural, and disciplinary regions, often in surprising ways."--Russell B. Goodman, emeritus professor of philosophy, University of New Mexico

The essays call into question origins, intention, and cause and effect. As this collection attests, Emerson is as important in an age of globalization as he was in an age of colonization. . . . Recommended. Choice"

The longing to be, not inter- or between-nations, but in some deep sense beyond the limits of nationhood, prevails throughout the book. But while this book does not offer a coherent perspective, it invigorates by means of sudden discoveries, cross-connections, overlaps, and gaps, as each of these "prismatic" essays reflects the question afresh. Review 19"
