Highbrow/Lowbrow: The Emergence of Cultural Hierarchy in America (William E. Massey Sr. Lectures in the History of American Civilization)

during this surprisingly wide-ranging research, spanning greater than a century and masking such varied sorts of expressive tradition as Shakespeare, relevant Park, symphonies, jazz, artwork museums, the Marx Brothers, opera, and vaudeville, a number one cultural historian demonstrates how variable and dynamic cultural barriers were and the way fragile and up to date the cultural different types we've discovered to just accept as ordinary and everlasting are.

for many of the 19th century, a wide selection of expressive forms--Shakespearean drama, opera, orchestral tune, portray and sculpture, in addition to the writings of such authors as Dickens and Longfellow--enjoyed either excessive cultural prestige and mass recognition. within the 19th century american citizens (in addition to no matter what particular ethnic, type, and nearby cultures they have been a part of) shared a public tradition much less hierarchically equipped, much less fragmented into fairly inflexible adjectival groupings than their descendants have been to adventure. through the 20 th century this cultural eclecticism and openness grew to become more and more infrequent. Cultural house used to be extra sharply outlined and no more versatile than it were. The theater, as soon as a microcosm of America--housing either the total spectrum of the inhabitants and the whole variety of leisure from tragedy to farce, juggling to ballet, opera to minstrelsy--now fragmented into discrete areas catering to certain audiences and separate genres of expressive tradition. a similar transition happened in live performance halls, opera homes, and museums. A starting to be chasm among "serious" and "popular," among "high" and "low" tradition got here to dominate America's expressive arts.

"If there's a tragedy during this development," Levine reviews, "it isn't just that thousands of usa citizens have been now separated from publicity to such creators as Shakespeare, Beethoven, and Verdi, whom they'd loved in quite a few codecs for a lot of the 19th century, but additionally that the inflexible cultural different types, after they have been in position, made it so tricky for therefore lengthy for therefore many to appreciate the price and value of the preferred artwork varieties that have been throughout them. Too lots of those that thought of themselves informed and cultured misplaced for an important period--and many have nonetheless now not regained--their skill to discriminate independently, to make things better out for themselves and needless to say just because a sort of expressive tradition used to be extensively available and hugely renowned it used to be now not for that reason inevitably without any redeeming price or creative benefit. "

during this leading edge historic exploration, Levine not just strains the emergence of such usual different types as intellectual and lowbrow on the flip of the century, yet is helping us to appreciate extra in actual fact either the method of cultural swap and the character of tradition in American society.
