Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Structures of the Jazz Age charts the 1920s cultural landscape populated by critical intellectuals like H.L. Mencken and Irving Babbitt, and by major imaginative writers like Dos Passos, Cather and Dreiser. Looking beyond the mainstream to more marginal schools of thought, including progressive educational philosophy, the critique of mass culture, and the cult of primitivism—exemplified in less canonized figures like Anzia Yezierska, Harry Leon Wilson and DuBose Heyward. He shows how these different strands were woven together in a way that helped to sustain Republican rule and an expanding economy, until the entire edifice came tumbling down in the stock market crash of 1929.

Synopsis:

Unraveling the cultural and intellectual landscape of 1920's America, author Chip Rhodes contrasts the truth of cliches that held the imagination about the lost generation of writers, the era of mass consumption, and the silver screen, while revealing their roots in a conservative ideology that helped sustain Republican rule until the stock market crash of 1929.

Description:

Includes bibliographical references (p. [202]-214) and index.
