Adaptations have long taken advantage of emergent forms to extend, re-tell, and appropriate previous literary works.

The received wisdom tells us that the modernization of American culture and society was contingent upon its secularization. And yet, when we look to both canonical works of American modernism and to contributions to the "cultural front," we find an abiding concern for the religious that troubles this dominant narrative.
