Summary
"In this bold reinterpretation of American culture, Philip Fisher describes generational life as a series of renewed acts of immigration into a new world." "A provocative new way of accounting for the spirit of literary tradition, Still the New World makes a persuasive argument against the reduction of literature to identity questions of race, gender, and ethnicity. Ranging from roughly 1850 to 1940, when, Fisher argues, the American cultural and economic system was set in place, the book reconsiders key works in the American canon - from Emerson, Whitman, and Melville to Twain, James, Howells, Dos Passos, and Nathanael West, with insights into such artists as Winslow Homer and Thomas Eakins."--Jacket
