Description
This surprisingly compact volume features essays, letters, poems, prose, and excerpts of interviews by 57 leading American authors of the 19th century. While attempting to decide what it meant to be a writer within the context of the relatively new nation they spoke to, for, and about, each meditated on craft, style, and form, and confronted the question of how to define themselves as writers—and their literature as "American"—during a century rocked by the industrial revolution, the Civil War, and the emergence of a global identity. Here are such well-known voices as James Fenimore Cooper, Ralph Waldo Emerson, Emily Dickinson, and Louisa May Alcott, as well as the less familiar Constance Fenimore Woolson (James Fenimore Cooper's grand-niece), Henry Timrod, Celia Thaxter, and Hamlin Garland.
