Designed for the general reader, this new three-volume set presents literature not as a simple inventory of authors or titles but rather as a historical and cultural field viewed from a wide array of contemporary perspectives. The set, which is ``new historicist'' in its approach to literary criticism, endorses the notion that not only does history affect literature, but literature itself informs history. The set features more than 250 survey entries. Subjects include: political topics (Reform, Women's Suffrage); ideas in context (Scientific Materialsim, Darwinism); values (Assimilation, Success); society (Labor, Mass Marketing); genres (Science Fiction, War Writing); popular entertainment (Baseball, Boxing); publishing (Scribner's Magazine); works of literature and nonfiction (``Billy Budd, '' ``The Theory of the Leisure Class''); and much more. The analysis of a wide range of classics in American literature, viewed as cultural and historical documents, cultivates critical skills in reading texts from various perspectives, including aesthetic, biographical, social, historical, racial and gendered.

Author Washington Irving believed this, his monumental biography of America's first great military hero and president, to be his finest literary achievement. Indeed, it is a masterful work, a superlative life of George Washington, and stood as a definitive text long after its 1860 publication.Volume I opens with a genealogy of the Washington family, tracing its roots back to the time of the Norman Conquest, and explores the future general's education as a boy, his service in the French and Indian conflicts, and his participation in the early rumblings of revolution in the British colonies in America.WASHINGTON IRVING (1783-1859) was born in New York City to Scottish immigrant parents. Considered by some the "Father of American Literature," Irving is best known for his short stories, including "The Legend of Sleepy Hollow" and "Rip Van Winkle," but he also produced an extensive bibliography of essays, poems, travel books, and biographies.

"Early American Literature and Culture: Essays Honoring Harrison T. Meserole, a timely collection that reflects changing conceptions of the field, contains studies by leading scholars and celebrates the achievements of Harrison T. Meserole--colonialist, bibliographer, and Shakespeare scholar extraordinaire. These dynamic essays deal with areas at the forefront of current research, such as popular culture, minority and non-Anglo writings, recanonization, genre studies, and Anglo-American links. All the contributors were Meserole's students sometime during the twenty-eight years he taught at The Pennsylvania State University, and all have established their own scholarly reputations since then." "Timothy K. Conley examines the institutionalization of American literature. Donald P. Wharton considers the influence of the English Renaissance on Colonial sea literature. Paul J. Lindholdt provides an overview of a vast popular genre, the colonial promotion tract." "Raymond F. Dolle uncovers the satire against Sir Walter Raleigh, the romantic treasure-seeker, by his more hard-nosed contemporary, John Smith. Reiner Smolinski's revisionist essay argues that New England's leading divines did not--as many still believe--justify their Errand eschatologically. Ada Van Gastel discusses the main text of the early Dutch colonists, by Adriaen van der Donck." "Kathryn Zabelle Derounian-Stodola analyzes Sarah Kemble Knight's travel journal as an unusual example of a Puritan picaresque. Jeffrey Walker probes eighteenth-century undergraduate commonplace books revealing the seamy side of Harvard undergraduate life. Stephen R. Yarbrough examines Jonathan Edwards's conceptions of time in the last work he saw to press before he died." "Robert D. Arner introduces and annotates two unpublished poems by the Samuel Pepys of eighteenth-century Virginia, Robert Bolling. Robert D. Habich explores Franklin's rhetorical method as rooted in contemporary empirical science. Cheryl Z. Oreovicz shows how Mercy Warren's tragedies contained stern messages for the post-Revolutionary "Lost generation."" "Jayne K. Kribbs looks at the popular novelist John Davis as a candidate for recanonization, and Paul Sorrentino shows that Mason Lock Weems's so-called children's classic, The Life of Washington, is a complex, artistic work for adults."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.

The Origins of American Religious Nationalism

Sam Haselby offers a new and persuasive account of the role of religion in the formation of American nationality, showing how a contest within Protestantism reshaped American political culture and led to the creation of an enduring religious nationalism. Following U.S. independence, the new republic faced vital challenges, including a vast and unique continental colonization project undertaken without, in the centuries-old European senses of the terms, either "a church" or "a state." Amid this crisis, two distinct Protestant movements arose: a popular and rambunctious frontier revivalism; and a nationalist, corporate missionary movement dominated by Northeastern elites. The former heralded the birth of popular American Protestantism, while the latter marked the advent of systematic Protestant missionary activity in the West. The explosive economic and territorial growth in the early American republic, and the complexity of its political life, gave both movements opportunities for innovation and influence. This book explores the competition between them in relation to major contemporary developments-political democratization, large-scale immigration and unruly migration, fears of political disintegration, the rise of American capitalism and American slavery, and the need to nationalize the frontier. Haselby traces these developments from before the American Revolution to the rise of Andrew Jackson. His approach illuminates important changes in American history, including the decline of religious distinctions and the rise of racial ones, how and why "Indian removal" happened when it did, and with Andrew Jackson, the appearance of the first full-blown expression of American religious nationalism.
