Title: Accented America
Subtitle: The Cultural Politics of Multilingual Modernism
Written By: Joshua L. Miller
URL: http://ukcatalogue.oup.com/product/9780195337006.do
Series Title: Modernist Literature and Culture
Description:

"Accented America" is a sweeping study of U.S. literature between 1890-1950
that reveals a long history of English-Only nationalism: the political
claim that U.S. citizens must speak a nationally distinctive form of
English. This perspective presents U.S. literary works as playfully,
painfully, and ambivalently engaged with language politics, thereby
rewiring both narrative form and national identity.
