Romanticism and the Anglo-Hispanic Imaginary (review)

Romanticism and the Anglo-Hispanic Imaginary (review) book reviews Romanticism and the Anglo-Hispanic Imaginary. Edited by Joselyn M. Almeida. Amsterdam: Rodopi, 2010. 386 pp. Cloth $100.00. Comprising fourteen essays that sketch in detail the Anglo-Hispanic historiography of the romantic era in Britain and the Americas, this volume offers a clear framework for understanding a deep-seated transcultural relational complex. In essence the essays articulate and explore the translation of culture, geography, and identity through the translation and cross-exchange of language, literature, liberal ideology, nationalisms, and history. The reigning themes of the volume are yoked together by a concern with transnationalism. Several essays treat the individual experiences of transnationals such as Blanco White, Francisco Miranda and Thomas Cochrane, whereas others address cultural, social, symbolic, and finance capital and their ideological and political role in Anglo-Hispanic relations or address the process of multiply layered translation in which translation of language, culture, and history winds up functioning as a trope. These explorations reveal that the intercultural imaginary that developed out of the historically antagonistic and competitive relations between England and Spain, which continued in their colonial rivalry in the Americas, undergoes a crucial reversal in the wake of Napoleonic aggression and Britain's decision to help defend Spain against French http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Comparative Literature Studies Penn State University Press
