Introduction: Framing the American Sublime

Introduction: Framing the American Sublime

(p.1) Introduction: Framing the American Sublime
Robinson Jeffers and the American Sublime
Stanford University Press

This introductory chapter sets the stage by discussing the hermeneutic of the sublime, American pragmatism, modern environmentalism, and Robinson Jeffers' Freudianism. It also sets out the book's main argument, that Robinson Jeffers, more than any other figure in our literature, has comprehensively engaged and crucially defined the American sublime. While there were interpreters and prophets of it before him, it was he who gathered up its varied strands into a coherent whole.

Keywords:   Robinson Jeffers, American sublime, Freudianism, hermeneutic, pragmatism, environmentalism
