Abstract

An interdisciplinary analysis of Marilynne Robinson's second novel Gilead. Investigates the novel's interactions with various figurations of the Middle West, specifically the production of an affective reality in this supposedly affectless region. Uses the contributions of New Regionalist social historians to frame Robinson's work.
