Abstract
In Beyond the Fruited Plain Kathryn Dolan argues that literary critiques of increasingly commercial nineteenth- century American agriculture coupled with western expansion (what she terms agri- expansion) presaged modern worries about industrial agriculture: “[T]he current level of interest in food and agriculture is hardly a new development in U.S. literature and culture.”
