  • Editors' Introduction: The Next Phase of J19
    • Abstract: With this issue we take on the editorship of J19. This is an exciting and intimidating task, made simultaneously easier and more daunting by the inspiring work of the journal's first editors, Dana Nelson and Chris Castiglia. In five short years, they created an influential forum for literary and cultural studies, combining long-form scholarly work with innovative features like the Pleasure Reading series and the Forums. As editors, we will honor their vision and protect their groundbreaking work, building on their success in order to guarantee the ongoing vitality of J19. Our first act as editors was to ask them to write Pleasure Reading pieces for all of us and we are delighted to include these essays in our first ... Read More

  • Pleasure Reading
    • Abstract: A regular feature of J19 We all fell in love with reading at some point. But in the workaday grind of our lives, finding pleasure in reading is all too rare. Still, every now and then, it happens. You pick up a book, maybe it's hot off the press, maybe it's got that familiar musty smell because it's been on your—or someone else's—shelves for years. You open the cover and start to skim. Something slows you down. And there it is: you remember what it feels like to want to read every word. Perhaps you've been writing criticism for some time, or you are just starting your career as a critic, and you read a monograph or article that makes you see the things you study in an unexpected, exciting, and challenging way that ...

  • Call For Letters
    • Abstract: New Feature of J19 Books get reviews and conference papers get questions, but journal articles—so central to our intellectual lives as scholars and teachers—often get no immediate response. With our new Letters section, J19 seeks to provide a forum for readers' comments, questions, critiques, and suggestions. These responses, we hope, will not only be useful for writers but will foster informal communities of scholars who are working on related topics or problems. More broadly, we see the Letters section as a site for debate, conversation, and community. The editors thus solicit letters of no more than 1,000 words in dialogue with essays from previous ...

  • Devil's Dream
    • Abstract: Not just the first time: every time. Every time I finish reading Devil's Dream, my first impulse is to start it again. A widening gyre, this story: how many returns' Even the third time, knowing now I would be writing about it, I kept putting it down and looking at the clock, as I do with all my pleasure reading, thinking "I have got to get back to work," the pleasure of reading still so intense it is guilt-inducing.I had meant it for the fastest of reads. It was November 2016, just after The Election. I'm a department chair. A writer was coming to town. Colleagues were excited to roll out the red carpet, and they asked me to host a small dinner at a nearby restaurant. I had a weekend to prepare to meet the man ... Read More

  • Approaching Ahab Blind
    • Abstract: This is the story of my shock of recognition when I encountered Moby-Dick as a meditation on the profoundly social causes and consequences of disability's riotous affects. It involves the vexed pleasures of my identifications with the Pequod's lonely, yearning, destructive, hopeful, disappointed captain, and how they led me to think about a distinctly un-Ahab-like way of relating to people as a literary critic, a citizen, and, most fundamentally, a disabled person. That "way" has to do with one of the hardest pleasures I've grappled with lately, compassion, the striving for connection that is mutual without being equivalent, projective, and self-surrendering, an exchange of vulnerabilities and care that is at once ...

  • Peradventure Feeble: A Response to Robert Levine
    • Abstract: I would like both to applaud Robert Levine's essay in the Spring 2017 issue of J19—"Why We Should Be Teaching and Writing about The Literary World's 1850 'Hawthorne and His Mosses' "—and add a brief postscript to it. As Levine observes, the editors of the Northwestern-Newberry Moby-Dick "refuse[d] to work with the words that Melville chose to publish" in "Hawthorne and His Mosses" (the freewheeling review of Hawthorne's Mosses from an Old Manse that appeared in The Literary World, edited by Melville's then-friend Evert Duyckinck, in August 1850). Drawing on selected portions of the manuscript version of the essay—the fair copy in Elizabeth Melville's handwriting with Melville's emendations penned in—the editors ... Read More

  • Visualizing in Black Print: The Brooklyn Correspondence of William J.
           Wilson aka "Ethiop"
    • Abstract: All the world are taught to look at both their deeds and men through a magnifying glass of their own construction, which invariably pronounces upon all favorably. You look and behold! It is good!—To look at our men and deeds, they bid us turn the other end of the glass; and as we do so, it pronounces with equal facility upon all, unfavorably. Let us have a glass of our own, my dear Douglass, and we, too, may see and teach others to see our own men and deeds as they ought to be seen—as they are. Of its utility, none can fail to be convinced. The blacks have great men; but the world has to be shown them. They produce noble deeds; but the world must witness their exhibition, and this we must do ourselves.American ... Read More

  • Rock Island Revisited: Black Hawk's Life, Keokuk's Oratory, and the
           Critique of US Indian Policy
    • Abstract: In 1848 American newspapers announced the death of Keokuk, a tribal leader of the Sauk Nation who had established a reputation as one of the finest American Indian orators. The American painter George Catlin had painted his portrait several times and found that there was "no Indian chief on the frontier better known at this time, or more highly appreciated for his eloquence."1 Historians, too, frequently praised Keokuk's skills as a politician and orator: Caleb Atwater called him "a shrewd politic man, as well as a brave one," Benjamin Drake celebrated his "eloquence" and "sagacity," and Thomas McKenney commented on his "courage, prudence, and eloquence." Keokuk was, in McKenney's words, "in all respects, a ... Read More

  • "What an Insect Teacheth Thee": Space, Gender, and Species in Lydia
           Sigourney's Animal Poetry
    • Abstract: In her poem "The Insect Teacher" (1856), Lydia Sigourney asks her reader to compare his or her own resiliency (or lack thereof) to that of the spider, who is constantly forced to reconstruct her web after having it destroyed.1 Referred to as "housewife's hate and beauty's scorn," the spider persists in "build[ing] her bower" with "untiring skill" and "an energy of will."2 The reader of the poem, on the other hand, is tempted to allow adversity to defeat him or her. "Yield no thought to blank despair," Sigourney admonishes the reader: "Firm in faith, and strong in prayer,/Rise!—the ruin to repair" (351). The final stanza brings together the spider and her human counterpart, making the comparison explicit:For the ... Read More

  • Four Million Freedmen and One Bronzed Body: Cuba's Ten Years War in US
           Culture, 1868–74
    • Abstract: The echoes of the guns of our own war for emancipation come back grandl.In March 1869, Philadelphia's Lippincott's Magazine published a piece by a former Union Army captain named W.W. Nevin on the Cuban anti-colonial war that had begun the previous October. Nevin was one of the first writers in the United States to write about Cuba's first war for independence (which would end in defeat in 1878). For him, the insurgency was a fight for emancipation, just as his own civil war had been. His was, of course, a partisan reading of the American Civil War and, in Cuba, what was not yet called the Ten Years War, which reflected the ideological battles in both countries about the emancipatory project of each.1 In the United ...

  • "The Little Mistress": Chivalry, Autonomy, and Domestic Relations in E. D.
           E. N. Southworth's The Hidden Hand
    • Abstract: The spacious and comfortable mansion of which she found herself the little mistress; the high rank of the veteran officer who claimed her as his ward and niece; the abundance, regularity and respectability of her new life; the leisure, the privacy, the attendance of servants, were all so different from anything to which she had previously been accustomed that there were times when she doubted its reality and distrusted her own identity.We urge you by your self-respect, by every consideration for the human race, to arise and take possession of your birthright to freedom and equality.

  • Introduction
    • Abstract: The point isn't the impossibility of escaping the stranglehold of the past, or that history is a succession of uninterrupted defeats, or that the virulence and tenacity of racism is inexorable. But rather that the perilous conditions of the present establish the link between our age and a previous one in which freedom too was yet to be realized.Charles W. Chesnutt's short story "The Goophered Grapevine" (1887), the first in a series that would come to be known as the "conjure stories," centers on an enchanted vineyard, located on an antebellum plantation, which becomes a synecdoche for the slave system as a whole. The plantation's bondspeople are prevented by a "goopher," a spell, from eating the grapes ... Read More

  • The End of Reconstruction, Again: Dylann Roof, Thomas Dixon Jr., and the
           Transhistorical Structures of Racist Feeling
    • Abstract: On the night of Barack Obama's election to the presidency, the New York Times columnist Thomas Friedman expressed an understandable hopefulness about the future of race relations. "Breaking with our racial past," he predicted, would be the "least" of our problems. Friedman closed his column with words that bridged the troubled past and the hopeful future. "The Civil War is over," he wrote. "Let reconstruction begin."1 Yet by invoking the Civil War and Reconstruction, Friedman identified a more complicated history than he may have intended. Reconstruction had been a political experiment, conducted between 1865 and 1877, in which the Congress of the United States attempted to enforce legal and civic equality across ... Read More

  • "Poor Eliza" on the Border
    • Abstract: No human is illegal. The slogan, seen on countless protest signs, refutes the nativist rhetoric that turned "illegal" into a noun signifying criminal nonpersonhood. In the figure of the migrant mother, perilously journeying across the border or hiding from immigration officers in a sanctuary church, Stowe's "Poor Eliza" reappears in altered form: a kind of "Pobre Elisa." In the portrait of the teenaged Dreamer with perfect college test scores and aspirations to save the world, we see again the innocent child-protagonist of numerous sentimental fictions. In the melodrama of the undocumented person unaware of their status until the fatal moment when an institution bars them entry, we hear echoes of literary "tragic ... Read More

           Demesvar Delorme
    • Abstract: In his 1866 book La Démocratie et le préjugé de couleur aux Étas Unis/Les Nationalités Américaines et le système Monroë, the nineteenth-century Haitian author and politician Demesvar Delorme observed that the US Civil War (1861–65) had done little to disrupt the racism that had impeded American democracy from the origin of the US nation onward. "The blacks," he explained,cannot become citizens. They are considered a separate and inferior race. That is the sacramental explanation of the contradiction of color prejudice in the United States … And this self-serving fiction has helped them to perpetuate the prejudices whereby the black man, even when liberated from slavery, lives without the rights of citizenship ...

  • Black-Asian Counterintimacies: Reading Sui Sin Far in Jamaica
    • Abstract: In "Leaves from the Mental Portfolio of a Eurasian," Edith Maude Eaton, writing as Sui Sin Far, reflects on her time in Jamaica as a white-passing mixed-race woman.1 Rumor of her Chinese ancestry provokes a white English naval officer to seek her out for sexual favors, a scenario still all too familiar to women, particularly women of color, today: a predatory conversation sheathed in friendly euphemisms. At first Far believes his visit has to do with her work as a journalist, but his repeated "silly and offensive laugh" suggests otherwise.2 When she attempts to dismiss him, he laughs again, "There's always plenty of time for good times. That's what I am here for."3 After commenting on her "nice little body," he ... Read More

E. Purdy's photography studio in Boston, Massachusetts and posed for a series of family portraits. The photographs, which were printed as 3 × 5 cabinet cards and standard 8 × 10 gelatin prints, traffic in familiar late nineteenth-century visual conventions: the Bakers are dressed in formal Victorian attire, pose against an ornate backdrop simulating a living ...
