Cultural Authority in the Age of Whitman

Günter Leypoldt

Edinburgh University Press

This chapter aims to relate the logic of literary professionalism to the rise of expressivist identity models, first identifying the locations of literary nationalism, and then looking at the North American Group and the idea of linguistic alienation. It also examines the ‘sources’ of selfhood, the expressivist turn, expressive identity, and cultural acceleration.

Keywords:   literary professionalism, expressivist identity models, literary nationalism, linguistic alienation, sources of selfhood, cultural acceleration, expressivist turn
