Becoming Media in An American Tragedy

Becoming Media in An American Tragedy

(p.43) 1 Becoming Media in An American Tragedy

Kate Marshall

University of Minnesota Press

The first chapter develops a reading of media and form in Theodore Dreiser’s 1925 novel. I take up the medial properties of the stamping technology employed by workers in the novel’s collar factory, and supervised by its ill-fated protagonist, to unpack the self-divided process of identification encoded in the novel’s narrative deployment of the hallway form.

Keywords:   media, modernism, American literature, architecture, infrastructure, naturalism, systems theory, cultural studies, materiality
