Literature, Intertextuality, and the American Revolution

Автор: Steven Blakemore

Короткое описание книги

Dealing with Thomas Paines Common Sense (1776), John Trumbulls MFingal (1776-82), Philip Freneaus The British-Prison Ship (1781), J.

Hector St.

John de Crevecoeurs Letters from an American Farmer (1782), and Washington Irvings Rip Van Winkle (1819-20), Steven Blakemore breaks new ground in assessing the strategies of subversion and intertextuality used during the American Revolution.

Blakemore also crystallizes the historical contexts that link these works together contexts that have been missed or overlooked by critics and scholars.

The five works additionally illuminate issues of history (The Norman Conquest, the English Civil War, and the French Revolution) and gender as they impinge on American-revolutionary discourse.

The result is five new readings of significant revolutionary-era works that suggest fruitful entries into other literatures of the Revolution.

Blakemore demonstrates the nexus between literature and history in the revolutionary era and how it created an intertextual dialogue in the formation of the first postcolonial critiques of the British Empire.
