Critical and Comparative Perspectives on American Studies

Editor(s): Ksenija Kondali, Faruk Bajraktarević; Contributors: Željka Babić;

This volume explores the convergences and divergences of American Studies today, and, more specifically, investigates how this discipline might be approached. Drawing on a wide range of perspectives, the essays brought together here address concerns related to the role and capacity of American Studies in the early 21st century, amidst alarming circumstances of environmental, economic, and educational degradation in a world characterized by a transnational flux of people, money, and cultures.

“Dickinsonian Intonations in Modern Poetry offers a fresh and unique
perspective on Anglo-American literature. Focusing on Emily Dickinson’s lesser-known translocational poems and their own concepts of
space and spirituality, the author traces a line of poetic influence that
originates with Dickinson and includes diverse Imagist, confessional,
feminist, and contemporary voices. Written with flair and sophistication, the book combines theoretically grounded close readings of relevant poems and a creative-critical approach to literary texts.”
