This international collection of critical and creative work offers compelling responses to the specifics of 'tradition' and 'place' in the face of the formal and thematic challenges of the modern at particular moments in the aesthetic development of American literature. Maintaining a Place operates also as a way of thinking about the legacy of key figures within Irish cultural debates about America in honouring an esteemed colleague, Ron Callan, for his unique contribution to the field of American Studies in Ireland. Pointing to the ongoing transatlantic influence exerted by the American poetic tradition on contemporary writers, and responding to current developments in literary studies by meshing the field's critical and creative strains the collection includes new poetry by established poets working in Ireland and the US. This volume will appeal to all readers with an interest in modern American literature and its continuing influence on transatlantic thinking and creative practices.
