Revolutionary histories : transatlantic cultural nationalism, 1775-1815 ( Book )
6 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 216 libraries worldwide
In this collection of interdisciplinary essays, historians and literary critics from both sides of the Atlantic analyse some of the most significant watersheds and faultlines that occurred in the period 1775-1815, a crucial era in the history of Euro-Americans relations. Tracing complex patterns of intellectual and cultural cross-pollination between the Old and the New World, between pre-and post-Revolutionary cultures, the essays aim to increase out awareness of the degree to which the emergence of cultural nationalism in this period was essentially a transatlantic process - a process that was itself part of a larger circumatlantic cultural continuum

The emigrants by Gilbert Imlay( Book )
9 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 125 libraries worldwide
"The American Gilbert Imlay is known to readers of British Romanticism as the cad who abandoned Mary Wollstonecraft, the founding mother of modern feminism. Few are as well-acquainted with The Emigrants, Imlay's delightful epistolary novel set in the Ohio River Valley of Kentucky, then the American frontier. The Emigrants (1793), one of the first Americna novels, contrasts the rigid political structures of England with the promise of the American West as a socially just utopia. Its sensational love plots also dramatize the plight of women trapped in degrading marriages, frankly advocating relaxed divorce laws."--Back cover
Gilbert Imlay : citizen of the world by W. M Verhoeven( Book )
13 editions published between 2007 and 2016 in English and Undetermined and held by 123 libraries worldwide
This monograph is the first book-length biography of the American Gilbert Imlay (c.1754-c.1828), revolutionary war veteran, land-jobber, travel-writer, novelist, entrepreneur, agent provocateur - and infamous lover of Mary Wollstonecraft. The book concerns an Imlay little known to those working in Romantic Studies, so includes a reconstruction of Imlay's early life in New Jersey; an account of his activities as a land speculator; the intriguing relations he had with a spate of historical characters; and his involvement with the Girondist government's plans to launch a revolt in the Western Territory against the US to destabilize Spanish rule in Louisiana. Previously undocumented details of Imlay's participation in the transatlantic slave trade are also included. Though his life provides a fascinating biography in its own right, the book highlights how Imlay unwittingly acted as an intermediary between figures of greater significance, whose diverse ideas, ambitions and schemes he frequently borrowed and disseminated across the Atlantic and across continents, whilst invariably serving his own interests

The vagabond : a novel by George Walker( Book )
4 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 99 libraries worldwide
"First published in 1799, George Walker's The Vagabond was an immediate popular success. Offering a vitriolic critique of post-Bastille Jacobinism and sansculotte-style mob rule, its true-to-life satirical portraits of many of the radical men and women who fought in the forefront of the "British Revolution" are nonetheless full of playful banter and farce. With swipes at Hume, Rousseau, Godwin, Wollstonecraft, and Paine; the French Revolution; and the ideas of the noble savage, natural virtue, equality, and romantic primitivism, The Vagabond offers a unique cross-section of 1790's radicalism." "This Broadview edition contains a critical introduction and a wide selection of primary source materials that situate the novel in the context of the revolutionary debate of the 1790s. Appendices include contemporary reviews of the novel and excerpts from the writings of a variety of radicals and reactionaries engaged in the debate, such as Hume, Rousseau, Paine, Thelwall, Wollstonecraft, Godwin, Burke, Playfair, Malthus, and Cobbett, among others."--Jacket

Little by little the ennui of years on the farm work their slow poison. Mary's despair progresses until the fateful arrival of an enigmatic and virile black servant, Moses.
