Das kulturelle Imaginäre: Eine Funktionsgeschichte des Amerikanischen Romans, 1790-1900

By Winfried Fluck (NHC Fellow, 1987–88)

Frankfurt, Germany: Suhrkamp, 1997

From the publisher’s description:

With this history of the American novel, a presentation is presented that stands in the context of the debate about the contribution of the novel to the modernization process. Fluck's work pursues the exciting complementarity of imaginary self-transgression and discursive preparation of the cultural imaginary in detailed individual interpretations of all important stations and genres of the American novel in the 18th and 19th centuries.
