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 protecting such assorted kinds of expressive tradition as Shakespeare, principal Park, symphonies, jazz, paintings museums, the Marx Brothers, opera, and vaudeville, a number one cultural historian demonstrates how variable and dynamic cultural obstacles were and the way fragile and up to date the cultural different types we have now discovered to just accept as common 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, classification, and neighborhood cultures they have been a part of) shared a public tradition much less hierarchically geared up, 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 turned more and more infrequent. Cultural house was once extra sharply outlined and no more versatile than it have been. The theater, as soon as a microcosm of America--housing either the whole spectrum of the inhabitants and the full diversity of leisure from tragedy to farce, juggling to ballet, opera to minstrelsy--now fragmented into discrete areas catering to particular audiences and separate genres of expressive tradition. a similar transition happened in live performance halls, opera homes, and museums. A growing 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 is not just that thousands of american citizens have been now separated from publicity to such creators as Shakespeare, Beethoven, and Verdi, whom that they had loved in a number of codecs for far of the 19th century, but in addition that the inflexible cultural different types, after they have been in position, made it so tricky for thus lengthy for thus many to appreciate the price and significance of the preferred paintings kinds that have been throughout them. Too lots of those that thought of themselves trained and cultured misplaced for an important period--and many have nonetheless no longer regained--their skill to discriminate independently, to make things better out for themselves and keep in mind that just because a kind of expressive tradition was once generally obtainable and hugely renowned it used to be now not accordingly inevitably with out any redeeming worth or inventive advantage. "

during this cutting edge old exploration, Levine not just strains the emergence of such time-honored different types as intellectual and lowbrow on the flip of the century, yet is helping us to appreciate extra basically either the method of cultural swap and the character of tradition in American society.
