Download and read online Babbitt in PDF and EPUB «Packendes Porträt der Zwanzigerjahre voller legendärer Charaktere... eine überzeugende Satire auf die Konformität der amerikanischen Mittelschicht.» (The Guardian) Sinclair Lewis ist der Chronist der US-amerikanischen Mittelschicht. Den Zwang zu Konsum und Konformismus, die Pervertierung des Amerikanischen Traums hat niemand so prägnant und dabei so amüsant beschrieben wie der Nobelpreisträger. Sein berühmter Roman "Babbitt" ergründet die Seele eines Mannes, dessen kapitalistische Überzeugungen Risse bekommen. In seinem ereignislosen, durchschnittlichen Kleinstadtleben hat der Immobilienmakler George F. Babbitt sich recht bequem eingerichtet. Seine drei Kinder sind wohlgeraten, wenn sie auch meist nicht auf ihn hören; mit seiner Frau verbinden ihn liebgewonnene Gewohnheiten. Sein ganzes Streben ist auf gesellschaftliche Anerkennung und wirtschaftlichen Aufstieg gerichtet. Bis ihm eines Tages bewusst wird, dass er all dies so nie gewollt hat, und einen Ausbruchsversuch wagt. Mit feinem Spott, ironischem Witz und stets voller Sympathie für den charakterschwachen Protagonisten erzählt der Roman, wie Babbitt sein rebellisches Selbst wiederentdeckt.

Download and read online The American Midwest in PDF and EPUB This first-ever encyclopedia of the Midwest seeks to embrace this large and diverse area, to give it voice, and help define its distinctive character. Organized by topic, it encourages readers to reflect upon the region as a whole. Each section moves from the general to the specific, covering broad themes in longer introductory essays, filling in the details in the shorter entries that follow. There are portraits of each of the region's twelve states, followed by entries on society and culture, community and social life, economy and technology, and public life. The book offers a wealth of information about the region's surprising ethnic diversity -- a vast array of foods, languages, styles, religions, and customs -- plus well-informed essays on the region's history, culture and values, and conflicts. A site of ideas and innovations, reforms and revivals, and social and physical extremes, the Midwest emerges as a place of great complexity, signal importance, and continual fascination.

Download and read online Cultural Excursions in PDF and EPUB Neil Harris's scholarship of the past twenty-five years has helped to open up the study of American cultural history. This long-awaited collection gathers some of his rich and varied writings. Harris takes us from John Philip Sousa to Superman, with stops along the way to explore art museums and world fairs, shopping malls and hotel lobbies, urban design and utopian novels, among other artifacts of American cultures. The essays fall into three general sections: the first treats the history of cultural institutions, highlighting the role of museums; the second section focuses on some literary, artistic, and entrepreneurial responses to the new mass culture; and the final group of essays explores the social history of art and architecture. Throughout Harris's diverse writings certain themes recur—the redefining of boundaries between high art and popular culture, the relationship between public taste and technological change, and the very notion of what constitutes a shared social experience. Harris's pioneering work has broadened the field of cultural history and encouraged whole new areas of inquiry. Cultural Excursions will be useful for those in American and culture studies, as well as for the general reader trying to make sense of the culture in which we live.
