Like these last examples, the subjects and authors of ‘‘American literature’’ and ‘‘American books’’ ranged well beyond New England. 28 In such interpretations, which render urbanization the central development of our period, ‘‘region’’ becomes the antithesis of the metropolitan. It is equally true that in these years of westward expansion and sectional division, the nation was deﬁned literarily by its regional parts: humor from the Southwest as well as from ‘‘Down East’’ Maine, or the westerninﬂected works of Bret Harte (part of the Osgood pantheon) and Mark Twain (who joined that pantheon in 1877), as much as the New England writers whom publishers such as Ticknor and Fields cast as the nation’s canon.

Osgood & Co. at the Centennial, was a Göttingen-trained scholar of Middle English with ties to European and British colleagues. Institutions that sought to establish an American scholarly presence in this period, notably the Smithsonian, participated in a broader discourse. Evangelical religion also crossed the Atlantic.
