Masculine Style presents a groundbreaking account of masculine self-fashioning in American literature and positions the American West as central to modernism. Daniel Worden argues for the importance of "cowboy masculinity," as dramatized in late nineteenth-century dime novels, to the writings of Willa Cather, Ernest Hemingway, Nat Love, Theodore Roosevelt, John Steinbeck, and Owen Wister. This perceptive study charts the contours and shifts in Western masculinity as it is detached from rigid class associations after the Civil War, remade as a normative requirement for national belonging at the turn of the century, and contained as a threatening force during the early years of the Cold War.
