The Dream of the Great American Novel by Lawrence Buell
Call Number: e-book
Publication Date: 2014-02-25
The first book in many years to take in the full sweep of national fiction, The Dream of the Great American Novel explains why this supposedly antiquated idea continues to thrive. It shows that four G.A.N. "scripts" are keys to the dynamics of American literature and identity--and to the myth of a nation perpetually under construction.
