Troping Place, Region and Nature in America


Krzysztof Kowalczyk-Twarowski

The experience of place forms the backbone of American literary culture. The present book studies the kind of character to which this process gave rise as well as two specific discourses: West Coast Orientalism and the rhetoric of New York dynamism. Syncretistic readings engage with both American life and letters.
Contents: Character in American Regionalism – West Coast Orientalism – New York Dynamism.
