The present volume focusses on regional and national aspects of literatures in English, and in particular on the literatures of Scotland, England and Ireland in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. Other parts of Terranglia, from Wales to the United States and from Australia to Nigeria, are covered as well. Approaches oriented towards comparison, intertextuality and translation enable the inclusion of literatures in languages other than English. Gender is a central area of interest, as is postcolonialism. The volume as a whole illustrates the large variety of ways in which territoriality can be constructed and theorized.
