Product Details

Product Description


'... a deeply informed, and compelling attempt to come to terms with an alien and, in so many respects, vanished cultural world'. Guardian 'All who are curious about the 'New World' ... will find no better place to begin than here. Brotherston's Book of the Fourth World hushes the din of Europe talking to itself about America, and lets America be heard.' The Times Literary Supplement '... an excellent new study ... as readable as it is original'. New Statesman and Society

Book Description

The Book of the Fourth World offers detailed analyses of texts that range far back into the centuries of civilised life from what is now Latin- and Anglo-America. In order to explore the literature of this world, Brotherston uses primary sources that have traditionally been ignored because they have not conformed to Western definitions of oral and written literature.
