    schema:description "With its broad scope, this ground-breaking comparison of two national literatures will interest a wide range of scholars and students of cultural and intellectual history and those who study the interaction between nationalism and literature. Along with specialists in Russian and Czech literature, Creating the Nation will appeal to historians and historically minded political scientists and sociologists. --Book Jacket."@en ;
    schema:description "Abrilliant new approach to the study of literature and nationalism, Creating the Nation examines fundamental developments in Russian and Czech literature and criticism from 1800 to 1830, a period that has largely been neglected in the English-language Scholarship. While other books have focused on the question of why developing nations look to literature as a source of national identity, Cooper turns the question around to ask why ideas of nationality are necessary for critics and writers seeking to evolve new genres and forms and modernize literary values."@en ;
    schema:description "During the first three decades of the 19th century, both Czech and Russian literatuers experienced a paradigm shift in conceptions of literary values--from a classicist conception based on the values represented by works of Greek and Roman antiquity to a broadly romantic conception in which literary value is grounded in the particularities of the modern nation as an individual subject with its own historical and geographical limits. Cooper's ambitious work produces a clear picture of how vital a role this shift played in driving the development of national identity and also how critical the period is to understanding the major trends and concerns of Russian and Czech literatures throughout the 19th century. Beginning at the ground level of vocabulary, Cooper shows how new terms appeared and old ones transformed in meaning as issues of identity gained prominence in the national discourse."@en ;
