"This exciting anthology does a wonderful job of rethinking American painting of the nineteenth century and introducing new methods of scholarship to the field."
--Bryan Wolf, Yale University
"An exciting new departure in the study of American culture. Working from the premise that visual and verbal forms of representation require both distinct and connected modes of analysis, this book explores the intricate crossings of visual discursive codes in a variety of cultural practices. Essays ranging from tourism and the perception of landscape to public monuments and the politics of vision make it clear that whatever culture may be, it can no longer be understood in purely textual terms, but must be understood as a heterogeneous, conflicted field of representation and discourse."
--W. J. T. Mitchell, University of Chicago, and editor, Critical Inquiry
"This valuable essay collection should be of interest to serious students of American art and literature. . . . Highly recommended."
"Twelve highly original explorations of the relationship between American art, American literature, and American culture. . . . Miller's careful and concise definition of the concept "iconology" lends them coherence, and taken as a whole, the collection suggests an intriguing new way in which to approach American literature--as conjunct to American art."
