    Padgett Co-Edits New Book

    October 22, 2014

    Dr. Jacqueline Padgett, Professor Emerita of English, co-edits the newly published book, The Brontë Sisters in Other Wor(l)ds. Dr. Padgett’s contributions include the introduction and a chapter titled, “On the Migration of Texts:  Emily Brontë’s Wuthering Heights, Maryse Condé’s La migration des coeurs, and Richard Philcox’s Translation of Condé’s Windward Heights,” pp. 75-125.

    An editorial review states, “The perceptive and erudite volume The Bronte Sisters in Other Wor(l)ds edited by Shouhua Qi and Jacqueline Padgett redresses a longstanding imbalance in Bronte studies, as a detailed examination of the critical and creative reception of the Brontes outside European and North American contexts has been long overdue. An important read not only for Bronte scholars but also for those exploring matters of cultural translation and the intricacies of the global reception of classics more generally.” – Marta Minier, Lecturer in Drama, University of South Wales, UK

    The textbook is available for purchase through Barnes and Noble , Amazon and, Palgrave Macmillan.
