About this book

This volume offers detailed accounts of the cults of individual writers and a comparative perspective on the spread of centenary fever across Europe. It offers a fascinating insight into the interaction between literature and cultural memory, and the entanglement between local, national and European identities at the highpoint of nation-building.

Reviews

“This substantial collection … brings together fifteen case studies of literary commemoration to produce the first comparative study of literary centenaries during the time of the ‘centenary fever’ in 19th century Europe. … Bringing together a great deal of recent research and opening up lines for further inquiry, Commemorating Writers in Nineteenth-Century Europe is, in every sense, a productive volume.” (Ina Ferris, Arcadia, Vol. 50 (2), 2015)
