Asia-Pacific and Literature in English
The Palgrave Asia-Pacific and Literature in English series presents exciting and innovative academic research on Asia-Pacific interactions with Anglophone literary tradition. Focusing on works from the voyages of Captain Cook to the early twentieth century, it also considers previous encounters in the early modern period, as well as reception history continuing to the present day. Encompassing China, Japan, Southeast Asia, India, and Australasia, monographs and essay collections in this series display the complexity, richness and global influence of Asia-Pacific responses to English literature, focusing on works in English but also considering those from other linguistic traditions. The series addresses the imperial and colonial origins of English language and literature in the region, and highlights other forms of reciprocal encounter, circulation, and mutual transformation, as part of an interdependent global history.
