The ivory leg in the ebony cabinet : madness, race, and gender in Victorian America by Thomas Cooley( Book )

7 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 504 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From Samuel Morton's collection of Native American skulls to William James's writings on the consciousness of lost limbs, this book examines an array of artifacts that reflect nineteenth-century thinking about madness, race, and gender. According to Thomas W. Cooley, what unites these seemingly disconnected cultural fragments is the governing model of "psychology," as it was just then coming to be called, that shaped the American understanding of "mind" before the age of Freud. Essentially a "faculty" psychology, this model conceived of the human mind as a set of separate roomlike compartments, each with its proper office or capacity. Under this architecture, a healthy mind was characterized by the harmonious interrelation of these faculties; madness, conversely, was believed to occur when the "chambers" of the mind became cut off from one another. In addition, gender and racial qualities were associated with different mental functions: the reasoning intellect took on a "masculine" and "white" valence, while the emotions and appetitive faculties were considered "feminine" or "black." What was thought to be true for the individual also applied to the group. Thus a balanced mind, a happy marriage, and a strong nation all drew their legitimacy from the same essentially racist and sexist model, one that posited a union of parts arrayed in an ostensibly natural hierarchy of authority. In effect a master/slave psychology, this paradigm prevailed in American thought until the end of the nineteenth century. As Cooley shows, it profoundly shaped artifacts of American high culture as well as low-from the writings of Hawthorne, Stowe, Douglass, Dickinson, and the Jameses to political speeches, medical treatises, phrenological sculptures, and sideshow exhibitions

Selected literary letters of Sophia Peabody Hawthorne 1842-1853 by Nancy Luanne Jenkins Hurst( )

2 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Sophia Peabody Hawthorne is the author of a remarkable body of correspondence. More than 1550 of her letters have survived, dating from 1822 (when she was thirteen years old) to shortly before her death of February 26, 1871, at the age of sixty-one. Surprisingly, scholars have published very few accurate transcriptions of whole letters by Sophia Hawthorne. This edition presents fifty-seven of her letters written between the dates of July 9, 1842 (when she married Nathaniel Hawthorne), and July 6, 1853 (when the Hawthornes left for England). During these eleven years, Sophia Hawthorne knew and commented perceptively on many contemporary literary figures (including her husband, Nathaniel). These letters present her literary observations in context and help to correct some misapprehensions about Sophia that could result from reading only the portions of her letters quoted in biographies of her famous husband. As a trained artist, she had an eye for detail that makes her descriptions of persons and events especially valuable. An intelligent, well-read woman, she had strong opinions on child rearing and education; yet she also delighted in her domestic roles of wife and mother. Though the theme that unites these letters is Sophia Hawthorne's perceptions of literary figures, they reveal many additional facets of her life and personality
