(p.160) Chapter 6 National Identity and the Smell of the Woods
Cultural Authority in the Age of Whitman

Günter Leypoldt

Edinburgh University Press

This chapter discusses the concept of incarnation in US discourse, which draws its persuasiveness from the rhetorical tension and interplay between two different geographical models of culture. Here, the discussion is divided into two main sections. The first examines spatial determinism, and the second studies the natural environment that is reproduced in the structure of cultural expression. The chapter also takes a look at symbolic geography, symptomatic spaces, spatial symbolism, poetic naturism, and symptomatic spatial poetics.

Keywords:   incarnation, models of culture, spatial determinism, natural environment, cultural expression
