Symbiosis: a Journal of Anglo-American Literary Relations

SYMBIOSIS is a peer-reviewed Journal indexed by the MLA. It bridges the institutional divide between literatures in English on either side of the Atlantic, a divide recognized by few creative writers. Playing a leading part in the modern revival of transatlantic perspectives, SYMBIOSIS is the only Journal uniquely concerned with studies of literary and cultural relations between the British Isles and the Americas. It publishes articles concerned with all periods of transatlantic relations, since the beginnings of Anglophone America, and representing all theoretical perspectives.
