Revolutionary writers : literature and authority in the New republic, 1725-1810 by Emory Elliott( Book )
11 editions published between 1982 and 1986 in English and held by 1,377 libraries worldwide
Elliott demonstrates how America's first men of letters--Timothy Dwight, Joel Barlow, Philip Freneau, Hugh Henry Brackenridge, and Charles Brockden Brown--sought to make individual genius in literature express the collective genius of the American people. Without literary precedent to aid them, Elliott argues, these writers attempted to convey a vision of what America ought to be; and when the moral imperatives implicit in their writings were rejected by the vast number of their countrymen they became pioneers of another sort--the first to experience the alienation from mainstream American cul
Aesthetics in a multicultural age by Emory Elliott( file )
15 editions published between 2001 and 2002 in English and held by 1,157 libraries worldwide
The essays collected in this volume examine the multidisciplinary and multicultural nature of the subject of aesthetics. The contributed articles address the vexed relation of the arts and criticism to contemporary social, political, and cultural issues of ethnicity, race, class, and gender in the United States today. These essays aim to resolve some of the issues of the so-called "culture wars" by bridging the gap that has existed for two decades between scholars and critics who generally hold conflicting views of the purposes of art and criticism. Accordingly, this volume provides a serious assessment of aesthetic theory and practices within the arts and letters of our multicultural society

New directions in American literary scholarship 1980-2002 by Emory Elliott( Book )
3 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 7 libraries worldwide
Any limited survey of the state of literary scholarship in the United States is bound to exclude much worthy work that does not fit into the categories, paradigms, and areas of investigation selected by the authors of such an overview. An essay that attempts to review the most important movements and trends in American literary scholarship risks the criticism of having recognized some trends and ignored others. Recognizing such limitations, we hope that this essay may be a useful starting point for students and researchers of the literatures of the United States who are seeking an understanding of what have been the most significant directions of scholarship since the 1980s
