This epilogue examines the potential of literature as an alternative medium of cultural transmission that might serve as a mode of affiliation and continuity beyond the family. It critiques the application of kinship metaphors to literary traditions and suggests that the acknowledgement of anti-familialism in nineteenth-century American fiction might change our understanding of the novel form itself.
