Summary
In Main Street and Empire, Ryan Poll argues that the small town, as evoked by the image of "Main Street," is not a relic of the past but rather a metaphorical screen upon which the nation's "everyday" stories and subjects are projected on both a national and global level. It brings together a wide range of literary, cultural, and political texts to examine how the small town is used to imagine and reproduce the nation throughout the twentieth- and into the twenty-first century
