Textual Mobility and Cultural Transmission is the first publication of the research and documentation Centre for the Study of English Literatures in Dutch Translation. The first part explores the notion of 'textual mobility' from a theoretical, book historical and descriptive perspective. Having thus established a broad and dynamic framework, the second part subsequently provides four case studies on Byron, Carlyle, Woolf and Beckett.
