Summary
With a fresh and exciting perspective, Narrating Class in American Fiction offers close readings of American fiction from 1850-1940 in the context of literary and political history to illuminate the class discourses of its writers. Dow skillfully argues that the place of class in literary analysis has far to go in catching up to the panoply of canonical textual approaches. This book explores the uneasy attention American authors gave to class in their production of social identities and fills a gap in American literature scholarship
