Orvell, Miles, Trachtenberg, Alan
This is a perceptive study of the relationship between technology and culture. Orvell discusses Whitman and his world, then considers material culture, photography, and literature. Among the cultural figures discussed are writers Henry James, John Dos Passos, and James Agee; photographers Alfred Stieglitz and Margaret Bourke-White; and architect-designers Gustav Stickley and Frank Lloyd Wright. A witty essay on the significance of junk in the 1930s concludes the book.Orvell, Miles is the author of 'Real Thing:imitation+authenticity...' with ISBN 9780807818374 and ISBN 0807818372.
