Literature and pop culture have been inextricably connected since the mid-1960s. The handbook provides a comprehensive overview of the often-controversial styles of writing, textual methods, and aesthetics that have emerged from this connection. It systematically discusses theories and current research issues on the relationship between literature and pop culture. Historical reflection is backed up with exemplary case studies.
