We take up Ghosh’s aspiration that the “book’s being [be] its becoming” by writing ourselves into it, by becoming implicated “in the across.” For us, the most adequate response to Ghosh–Miller’s book “about enacting a communication” has been to (re) enact a communication, to dialogue in response to a dialogue, to take up what Ghosh and Miller perform as “thinking across continents” by thinking across in turn, here across generations. Thinking Literature across Continents unfolds in five sections on “The Matter and Mattering of Literature,” “Poem and Poetry,” “Literature and the World,” “Teaching Literature,” and “Ethics and Literature.” In each section, each author has his say (first Ghosh, then Miller, always in that order).
