Description
Working through close rhetorical analysis of everything from fiction and journalism to documents and documentaries, this book looks at how popular memory favors the country Depression over the economic crisis in the nationÆs cities and factories. Over eighty years after it happened, the Depression still lives on in iconic images of country poor whites - in the novels of John Steinbeck, the photographs of Dorothea Lange and Arthur Rothstein, the documentary films of Pare Lorenz and the thousands of share-croppersÆ life histories as taken down by the workers of the Federal WritersÆ Project.
