Nonfiction. Literary History & Criticism. CHARTING THE HERE OF THERE is a companion to the New York Public Library exhibition "Reviews of Two Worlds: French-American Literary Periodicals, 1945-2000." Written by Guy Bennett and Béatrice Mousli (co-curators of the New York Public Library exhibition), CHARTING THE HERE OF THERE contains a world of French-American exchange—a world governed by back-and-forth, double conciousness, the magic inherent in translation and mistranslation, as well as the fantastic, poetic mystery and possibility which comes out of this articulation "across the pond." Bennett and Mousli document the high points of this ongoing exchange as it writes itself on the pages of French and American literary magazines from 1850 through to the present. The result is an impeccable overview of production testifying to the undeniable, often indefinable bond joining French and American poetry.
