The city in literature : an intellectual and cultural history by Richard Daniel Lehan( Book )

16 editions published between 1998 and 2007 in English and Undetermined and held by 745 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this sweeping literary encounter with the Western idea of the city, Richard Lehan delves into literature, philosophy, and urban history to untangle the contradictory images and meanings of the urban experience. He traces the relationship between literature and the city from the early novel in England to the apocalyptic cityscapes of Thomas Pynchon. Along the way, Lehan gathers a rich entourage of support that includes Daniel Defoe, Charles Dickens, Emile Zola, Bram Stoker, H. Rider Haggard, Joseph Conrad, James Joyce, Theodore Dreiser, F. Scott Fitzgerald, and Raymond Chandler. The European city is read against the decline of feudalism and the rise of empire and totalitarianism, the American city against the phenomenon of the wilderness, the frontier, and the rise of the megalopolis."--Jacket

11 editions published between 2009 and 2012 in English and Undetermined and held by 426 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this wide-ranging study, Lehan demonstrates how and why the "originary vision" of modernism changed radically after it gained prominence. With critical discussions on a wide variety of major modernist writers, intellectuals, and artists and their works--including Virginia Woolf, Gertrude Stein, T.S. Eliot, Wallace Stevens, André Gide, Franz Kafka, Zora Neale Hurston, Ian Fleming, and J.K. Rowling--Lehan examines the lareg-scale changes that came as critical authority moved from one generation to another.--From book jacket

Few spaces remain as central to American consciousness as the western frontier.

Through an intellectual and cultural history of the frontier experience, Lehan details the transformations of ideas and literary forms that occurred as the country expanded to the west and demonstrates how the wilderness, and then by turn the urban frontier, represent an ideological summary of the nation itself. His study involves the f
