Zsolt Győri and Gabriella Moise’s book, Travelling around Cultures: Collected Essays on Literature and Art, has been reviewed in the latest issue of Pro&Contra by Eszter Krakkó. Eszter’s review is extremely positive, and can be read in full here. Please see below for an indicative excerpt.
“Although the subtitle humbly suggests that this volume is a “mere” collection of essays, on reading the book, one immediately notices that it undertakes a challenge of thematic coherence that exceeds the usual aims and scope of “regular” conference proceedings – and meets this self-imposed requirement perfectly. […] the compilation aptly fulfils the role it was destined for and “illustrates the diversity of cultural products and phenomena while bringing to view the way texts emerge, engage with real life, and become consumed” and at times also “commodified” (10). Perhaps the editors agree with the hope that this excellently edited volume of cutting-edge scholarship will be consumed by many but never commodified.”
