Transnational Na(rra)tion

Home and Homeland in Nineteenth-Century American Literature

E-Book ( EPUB mit Adobe DRM )

This book examines American literary texts whose portrayal of American identity involves the incorporation of a foreign body as the precondition for a comprehensive understanding of itself. This nexus of disconcerting textual dynamics arises precisely insofar as both citizen/subject and national identity depend upon a certain alterity, an other which constitutes the secondary term of a binary structure. American identity thus finds itself ironically con-fused and interwoven with another culture or another nation, double-crossed in the enactment of itself. Individual chapters are devoted to Benjamin Franklin, Washington Irving, Frederick Douglass, Louisa May Alcott, Nathaniel Hawthorne, and Mark Twain.
