Abstract

FLORENCE DORE We'll build in sonnets pretty roomes; As well a well wrought urne becomes The greatest ashes, as half-acre tombes, And by these hymnes, all shall approve Us Canoniz'd for love. John Donne, "The Canonization" (1633) Although it's always crowded, you still can find some room. Where broken hearted lovers do cry away their gloom. Tommy Durden and Mae Boren Axton, "Heartbreak Hotel" (1956) speculation: John Donne's "pretty roomes" give way to the "room" in the 1956 RCA hit, "Heartbreak Hotel." In the infamous 1930 Agrarian manifesto I'll Take My Stand, Andrew Nelson Lytle articulated an opposition between culture and media that New Critics would bring into the postwar moment: Southern farmers should "[t]hrow I was lucky enough to receive timely and sage advice on this work from J. D. Connor, Mary Floyd-Wilson, Richard Godden, Dorothy Hale, Amy Hungerford, Oren Izenberg, Deak Nabers, and Benjamin Widiss. I am grateful to these wonderful scholars, and to the National Humanities Center and the National Endowment for the Humanities for their support in the development of this work.
