Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This analysis of two hundred American and Canadian novels offers a new theory of national literatures, demonstrating that national canon formation occurs in tandem with nation-building. It accounts for cross-national differences and illuminates the historically constructed and symbolic nature of the relationship between literature and the nation-state. High-culture national literatures are selected as different from other novels; popular-culture bestsellers are mass market commodities for the largest, least differentiated audience.

Synopsis:

Theory of formation of national literatures, based on analysis of 200 American and Canadian novels.

Description:

Includes bibliographical references (p. 184-203) and index.

Table of Contents

1. Introduction: cultural fields and literary use; 2. Nation-building and the historical timing of a national literature in the United States; 3. Nation-building and the historical timing of a national literature in Canada; 4. The canonical novels: the politics of cultural nationalism: the literary prize-winners: revision and renewal; 6. The bestsellers: the economics of publishing and the convergence of popular taste; 7. Literary meaning and cultural use; Appendices.
