The Metropolitan as Master Subject: Janet Flanner's 'Paris Letters'
Journal / Book Title
Mosaic: an interdisciplinary critical journal
Janet Flanner's early "Paris Letters" invite the New Yorker's audience to view Paris with condescension. The content and rhetoric of these pieces reverse the traditional hierarchy between French and American cultures, showing her readers that superiority means seeing as the master subject-a seductive perspective for an economically emergent readership.
