Kaplan shows that American realism constructs a coherent representation of a society that seemed to the realists increasingly fragmented, threatening, and out of control. She reads realistic narrative as a symbolic act of imagining and controlling the social upheavals of early modern capitalism, particularly on two fronts: class conflict and the development of American media.
