Where is American Literature? by Caroline Field Levander
  

Synopsis

Where is American Literature? by Caroline Field Levander

Where is American Literature? offers a spirited and compelling argument for rethinking the way we view American literature in relation to the nation while powerfully demonstrating why it continues to matter in a global age. * A refreshing and accessible investigation into the various locations - linguistic, geographical, virtual, ideological - where American writing is produced and consumed * Takes a highly original approach by viewing US literature spatially rather than chronologically or thematically, retuning our understanding of the subject * The book offers a vital intervention in current debates over the impact of digital technologies on the production and reception of literature, ensuring that the field remains lively and dynamic * Invites readers to reconsider the subject by questioning current perspectives on, and approaches to, US literature, offering a range of fresh perspectives on familiar texts and topics
