The volume explores some of the myths that have profoundly marked the mapping of american territories, the ,body´ of american peoples, and America´s body politic. American Foundational Myths investigates the rhetorical, political, economic or creative strategies it has taken for these myths to gain their constitutive and performative power. It offers a wide range of approaches - from a discussion of the role of elsewhere realities in the American Dream to an analysis of the rewriting of American foundational myths in alfred Hitchcock´s North by Northwest, and from a study of early white male myths to an investigation into Ginsberg´s and Ferlinghetti´s attempts in the 50s and 60s to counteract the Disneyfication of America.
