A Homemade World by Hugh Kenner

"A Homemade World" is a critical analysis of modern American literature, focusing on the works of authors such as William Carlos Williams, Gertrude Stein, and Ezra Pound. The book explores how these authors broke away from traditional European literary forms to create a distinctly American literature, reflecting the unique cultural, social, and linguistic context of the United States. The author argues that this "homemade" American literature is characterized by its innovative use of language and form, its emphasis on the ordinary and everyday, and its commitment to democratic ideals.
