Über diesen Titel

Inhaltsangabe:

Elliott demonstrates how America's first men of letters--Timothy Dwight, Joel Barlow, Philip Frenan, Hugh Henry Brackenridge, and Charles Brockden Brown--sought to make individual genius in literature express the collective genius of the American people. Without literary precedent to aid them, Elliott argues, these writers attempted to convey a vision of what America ought to be--and when the moral imperatives implicit in their writings, were rejected by the vast number of their countrymen they became pioneers of another sort--the first to experience the alienation from mainstream American culture that would become the fate of nearly all serious writers who would follow.

Review:


"This is a fine book, well organized, well argued, and well written."--Harry S. Mooney, Jr., University of Pittsburgh


"Carefully conceived, gracefully executed, Revolutionary Writers is essential reading for anyone concerned with the literature of the post-revolutionary period, and it is equally important for anyone interested in the ongoing discussion of the origins of the American self."--Early American Literature


"Revolutionary Writers [is] a work that significantly redirects our understanding of American literature in the latter part of the eighteenth and the early nineteenth centuries."--The Canadian Review of American Studies

Anbieterinformationen

We have been selling academic and scholarly books in Cambridge since 1996. Today we occupy an old warehouse on Coldhams Road, adjacent to the railway tracks leading to Ely, not too far from the airport. The site is called Restwell House. We are an internet bookshop, but visitors are very welcome. Some drop off a few boxes of unwanted books, some pick up a book to save on the postage, some just drop by to get to know us, or want to take advantage of the many bargains on our wooden shelves bookshop, which is distinct from the internet stock offered on the web. Our mission has always been to find new homes for the books we are looking after. If we cannot sell them online, we offer them at very low prices to our visitors. We try to give you a serious and dedicated service which is focussed on the individuality of each single book: its condition, its origin, sometimes even its smell. You come to us for real books, not just instances of ISBNs.
