Description

Provides a thorough historical survey of the impact of U.S. copyright law on transatlantic modernist authors. Documents the growth and development across time of the American public domain, as shaped by the historically protectionist and formalistic U.S. copyright law. Gives fresh insights drawn from unpublished materials-letters by Joyce, John Quinn, Ezra Pound, Sylvia Beach, John M. Price, and others-and makes extensive use of hitherto unknown legal archives.
