Description

This collection challenges the traditional focus on solitary genius by examining the rich diversity of collaborations from the early modern to the post-modern period. "Literary Couplings" explores some of the best-known literary partnerships - from the Sidneys to Boswell and Johnson to Sylvia Plath and Ted Hughes - and also includes lesser-known collaborators such as Daphne Marlatt and Betsy Warland. The essays place famous authors such as Samuel Coleridge, Oscar Wilde, and William Butler Yeats in new contexts; reassess overlooked members of writing partnerships; and throws new light on texts marginalized due to their collaborative nature.
