The part of Dr. Levander’s piece that I enjoyed the most and was able to closely resonate with was the section on how the characters in Imperium in Imperio projected there own struggle onto that of the Spanish-American War. Additionally, when she goes on to say that the conflict was one of many contextual clues that we as a readers should take out of the book. More importantly, that we recognize the locale of the piece is even more important than it would first seem, as it had specific trends and beliefs that were quite different than what we could expect elsewhere. We are forced to look at the culture of Texas as much more than simply the culture of the “south,” as it is not simply like the other states that surround it.

Oh and my question is this: What specific aspect of Texan culture helps to identify that place as a home for the Imperio?
