Jefferson and the iconography of romanticism: folk, land, culture, and the romantic nation
"Jefferson and the Iconography of Romanticism explores in detail the national iconography of Monticello. It contextualises the villa in relation to Jefferson's earlier explorations of American identity; examines the attempt to establish at Monticello fixed signs of the myth of the fourth of July during the return of La Fayette in 1824; and, finally, shows how Monticello became a site of contention in the definition of what it is to be American."--BOOK JACKET.
Includes bibliographical references (p. 177-199) and index.
