Abstract:

"This book is a contribution to existing research on the themes of race and slavery in the founding literature of the United States. It extends the boundaries of existing research by locating race and slavery within a transnational and "oceanic" framework."

"The author applies critical concepts developed within postcolonial theory to American texts written between the national emergence of the United States and the Civil War, in order to uncover metaphors of the colonial and imperial "unconscious" in American foundational writing.

Designed as a reply to Toni Morrison's demand to examine the "ornate absence" of the themes of race and slavery in classic American literature, the book analyzes the writings of canonized authors such as Charles Brockden Brown, James Fenimore Cooper, Edgar Allan Poe, and Herman Melville alongside those of lesser known writers like Olaudah Equiano, Royall Tyler, Frederick Douglass, Martin Delany, and Maxwell Philip, and situates them within the colonial, and "postcolonial," context of the slave-based economic system of the Black Atlantic."

"While placing the transatlantic slave trade on the map of American Studies and viewing it in conjunction with American imperial ambitions in the Pacific, Fictions of the Black Atlantic in American Foundational Literature also adds a historical dimension to present discussions about the "ambivalence" of postcoloniality."--Jacket.
