Abstract

Strange Brew examines how the ubiquity of alcohol in 20th century America has often become linked to its writers, its literature, and its culture. As such, the project explores the use of alcohol, in many instances to extreme lengths, as a means to creative expression in fiction and poetry, a numbing agent, and an integral part of American society that says as much about the United States of America as any other aspect of the country. The latter can be seen in coping with and interacting in prescribed social situations, gender roles, and how alcohol becomes an even larger part of Cold War culture.
