The second concerned the persistence of essentially pre-modern ways of life in the context of American hypermodernity. In some ways, these issues were related as two elements of a new cosmopolitan vision of America. For the bohemians of Greenwich Village, America was a rich amalgam of immigrant and indigenous cultures. Polemicists including Van Wyck Brooks and Randolph Bourne asserted that Americans had for too long viewed themselves as England’s cultural inferiors; with the increasing financial and industrial power of the United States, it was time to assert a distinctively American cultural identity.
