Please define for me literary nationalism and how it worked in America during the early 19th century. Please feel free to search for this term on the Internet. Once you have defined literary nationalism, please explain for me how that works or doesn’t work in either of the Washington Irving stories we read Week 4: “Rip Van Winkle” or “The Legend of Sleepy Hollow.”
