To be an author : letters of Charles W. Chesnutt, 1889-1905 by Charles W Chesnutt( Book )
5 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 552 libraries worldwide
Long eclipsed by the writers who later rose to prominence during the Harlem Renaissance, Charles W. Chesnutt (1858-1932) has received a steadily increasing amount of attention since the 1960s. In what he termed the "Post-Bellum-Pre-Harlem" phase of African-American cultural history, this pioneer in the world of black letters vied with Paul Laurence Dunbar for the honor of being the first to "evince innate distinction in literature." The major establishment critic of his day, William Dean Howells, recognized Dunbar's poetry thus in 1896. But it was Chesnutt who won Howells's praise for prose fiction a few years later when The Conjure Woman (1899) and The Wife of His Youth (1899) appeared

An exemplary citizen : letters of Charles W. Chesnutt, 1906-1932 by Charles W Chesnutt( Book )
3 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 378 libraries worldwide
"This book collects the letters written between 1906 and 1932 by novelist and civil rights activist Charles W. Chesnutt (1858-1932). Between 1885 and 1905, this pioneer in the African-American literary tradition published three novels, two books of short stories, a biography of Frederick Douglass, and many short stories and essays in prestigious periodicals - at the same time managing a stenography and court reporting firm in Cleveland, Ohio. His works, which featured the experiences of African Americans in the ante- and post-bellum period, received favorable reviews. But they did not find a large and appreciative audience until many decades later when both the civil rights movement and increased interest in the African-American contribution to American cultural life resulted in the "rediscovering" of Chesnutt's large body of writings."--Jacket

Textual studies and the enlarged eighteenth century : precision as profusion ( Book )
2 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 128 libraries worldwide
"Scholars, librarians, students, and database vendors have all applauded the increase in access to rare, old, venerated, and obscure texts that has resulted from the rise of electronic resources. Almost everyone associated with any branch of cultural history has heard the claims about unlimited research opportunity and the rediscovery of overlooked sources. But are these claims true? Have high-tech systems and methods enhanced or inhibited scholarship? Nowhere is this question more pressing than in the area of eighteenth-century studies, where so much of the subject matter relates to the first wave of informational abundance: to that great period of profuse printing during which presses produced a mass market full of diverse readers. Textual Studies and the Enlarged Eighteenth Century probes the assumptions about the advanced tools that may be replicating this period of profusion among contemporary scholars. How much access to "period" information do current cost and present institutional support really allow? Who is accessing what--and who is not? Which authors and which topics get lost in the processor-driven shuffle? How do electronic tools bias scholarship? What are the disadvantages of databases? These and many more questions receive a brisk and robust review in this first critique of new-wave research. A variety of acclaimed scholars from an interdisciplinary array of specialties look at topics ranging from legacy bibliographical projects to standards for online editions to para-textual materials to the appropriateness of importing electronic research techniques into the study of a low-tech period and on to the transatlantic exchange of information in both the early modern and the present periods. Scholars in all fields will benefit from this vigorous analysis of the assumptions underlying the tools and the methods of twenty-first century humanities scholarship."--Publisher's website
The sensational centuries : essays on the enhancement of sense experience in the seventeenth, eighteenth, and nineteenth centuries ( Book )
2 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 64 libraries worldwide
The long period of “enlightenment” that extended from the rise of organized science to the emergence of Gilbert and Sullivan operas lauded reason and commended reflection but depended on sensation. A remarkably broad range of intellectual and cultural activity, whether the critical philosophy of John Locke or the rapturous poetry of John Keats, genuflected to the tame abstraction “experience” but gave full credit to raw sense for the sustaining of art, writing, and thought. Universally invoked as everything from evidence to inspiration, “sensation” became the watchword of modernization. The Sensational Centuries offers a portfolio of essays on the twists, turns, and metamorphoses of the idea and theme of “sensation” during the seventeenth, eighteenth, and nineteenth centuries, paying special attention to the evolution of sensationalism as an artistic and philosophical movement and examining the many curious and revealing cultural productions resulting from this intense interest in the varieties of sense
