Edward Hopper and the American Imagination

Although the visual influence that Edward Hopper has had on film and contemporary photography
is well known, this engaging volume sorts it out. And its strength is in its depth, as well as in perceiving Hopper's impact on literature. It thus makes an important and uncomonnon bridge between the visual arts
and language, and is relevant to all who are interested in photographic narrative, the nature of solitude,
and the American myth.
