Summary
"This book reconceptualizes American modernity by focusing on rurality and women. It challenges the notion of the city as the privileged site of modern experience, arguing that rurality--urbanity's opposite, frequently associated with nostalgia and feminine sentimentality--was a fruitful geographic and psychic location for registering women's perceptions of the modern. As its title implies, however, it is less about the empirical facts of farm life than about its abstractions--the idea of rurality, and the ways in which women were positioned, by themselves and others, in reference to it. Attending closely to language, images, and figurative connections, it demonstrates the theoretical importance of rurality to the imaginative construction of American modernity and modernism, and asserts that women had a special stake in that relation"--Abstract
