Lost and Found: The Discovery of Lithuania in American Fiction

Lost and Found: The Discovery of Lithuania in American Fiction By Ausra Paulauskiene
2007 | 184 Pages | ISBN: 9042022663 | PDF | 2 MB


Ausra Paulauskiene's book Lost and Found: The Discovery of Lithuania in American Fiction targets American as well as European scholars in the fields of literature, ethnic studies and immigration. The author discovers obscure texts on Lithuania and alerts Western and Eastern academia to their significance as well as the reasons for their neglect. For the first time, Abraham Cahan's autobiography The Education of Abraham Cahan and Ezra Brudno's autobiographical novel The Fugitive receive an extensive coverage, while Goldie Stone's My Caravan of Years and Margaret Seebach's That Man Donaleitis (sic) receive their first scholarly consideration ever. The author argues that misrepresentations, misattributions and exclusions of Lithuanian legacy in the U.S. were produced by major political events of the twentieth century.
