Summary
Reading for Reform rewrites the literary history of late nineteenth and early twentieth century America, putting social reform institutions at the center of literary and cultural analysis. It tells a new story about the fate of literary practice and the idea of literature's practical value, during the years when modernist authors were proclaiming art's autonomy from concepts of social utility. - from book cover
