Correspondence and American literature, 1770-1865 by Elizabeth Hewitt( Book )

3 editions published between 2004 and 2009 in English and held by 346 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Elizabeth Hewitt uncovers the centrality of letter-writing to antebellum American literature. She argues that many canonical American authors turned to the epistolary form as an idealized mode through which to consider the challenges of American democracy before the Civil War. The letter was the vital technology of social intercourse in the nineteenth century and was adopted as an exemplary genre in which authors from Crevecoeur and Brockden Brown to Emerson, Fuller, Melville, Jacobs, Dickinson and Whitman could theorize the social and political themes that were so crucial to their respective literary projects. They interrogated the political possibilities of social intercourse through the practice and analysis of correspondence
Edgar Allan Poe : selected poetry, tales, and essays, authoritative texts with essays on three critical controversies by Edgar Allan Poe( Book )

3 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 150 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

As with previous volumes on Adventures of Huckleberry Finn and The Tempest, this new entry in Gerald Graff and James Phelan's Case Studies in Critical Controversy series is designed for "teaching the conflicts" - in this case, the conflicts surrounding the work of Edgar Allan Poe, one of the most popular yet contested literary figures in all of American literature. Editors Jared Gardner and Elizabeth Hewitt have selected some of Poe's most provocative and discussed poetry, fiction, and nonfiction, along with critical essays representing three major critical and cultural controversies about Poe and his work: The controversy over aesthetics and the literary marketplace; or, Is Poe a literary genius or a pop-cultured hack? The controvery over race; or, what did Poe have to say about African Americans and slavery? The controversy of over gender and sexuality; or, Why is Poe so obsessed with dead women? The literature and critical essays are supported by distinctive editorial matter that introduces students to Poe's life and work, to critical conflict in literary studies, to each critical controversy in the book, and to writing about the controversies. The edition helps students grapple not only with the critical issues involving Poe but also with cultural debates about literature itself. -- from back cover
