chapter 4

"Even Europeans in the early 1800's who admideered America's self government, prosperity and common schools were unimpressesd by American literature and culture". (Starr pg 113) This quote from Paul Starr.s book "The Creation of the Media" displays to its readers the changes in literatute in American in the 1880's. Also this quote examines the ideal that many Europenas had about how Thy were not happy with the direction that american literature was heading. The reason why many felt so distaisfied with the literature was because it was noticed throughout the society that nothing was being done since society's independance from the sciences and all other polltical aspects.

The quote you have cited is about the "early 1800s," then you mention the 1880s, which is the late 1800s. Wasn't anything happening in science and literature in all that time?
