This paper teases out the connections between modernism and spatial/temporal representations on “Love and Theft,” particularly as they relate to the album's fundamental tensions between tradition and modernity. I focus on the album's acknowledgments of literary modernism and its use of modernist techniques to address the flexibility of time, rural/urban divisions, and the archetype of the American rustic. In its lyrical content and musical idioms, the record reveals a complicated, creolized center and encapsulates the drama of vernacular music's movements between the city and the country.
