An original and highly unusual psycholinguistic study of American literature and culture from 1584 to 1860, this volume focuses on the metaphor of 'land-as-woman.' It is the first systematic documentation of the recurrent responses to the American continent as a feminine entity (as Mother, as Virgin, as Temptress, as the Ravished), and it is also the first systematic inquiry into the metaphor's implications for the current ecological crisis. |A collection of works by Pulitzer prize-winning playwright Paul Green (1894-1981), including short stories, essays, letters, plays, and a selection from The Lost Colony. An introduction outlines Green's life and work.
