Land and Literature in a Cosmopolitan Age

Vincent P. Pecora

  • Explores how vital geographies have shaped nineteenth- and twentieth-century literature and intellectual life
  • Insists on the persistence of ancient religiously animated themes about belonging to the land--autochthony and promised land--into a nominally secular and cosmopolitan twentieth century
  • Makes an argument against the continuing viability of national self-determination
  • Presents modern culture as much less cosmopolitan than previous criticism has suggested
