  • 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 ...

  • Words of War
    • Abstract: The American Civil War is an event burdened with the weight of words. It is common for historians to state that 65,000 books have been written about the Civil War; recent sesquicentennial commemorations have only added to that number.1 The interpretation center at Ford’s Theatre features a 34-foot tower composed entirely of books on Lincoln, though these represent only a small measure of the 15,000 books written about the martyred president. As a person who confuses her generals and doesn’t know the difference between a rifled musket and a Parrott rifle, I find this cacophony of words—and the seeming impossibility of saying something new—intimidating.Historians don’t seem to feel this way; indeed, the Civil War ...

  • Reading Melville Reading Character
    • Abstract: I spent my first night with The Confidence-Man during a particularly subterranean stretch of graduate-school reading. Ever since, the novel has been wedged like a splinter in my mental picture of antebellum America. I can’t seem to absorb it fully, neither can I shake it loose. It remains a curiosity and a necessity, anomalous but somehow indispensable; it haunts classroom attempts to historicize adjacent classics; it exerts a mysterious gravitational pull on new work addressing models of secular sociality in American writing. As with most deeply seated splinters, a perverse joy inhabits each new effort at tugging it out.Encounters with The Confidence-Man are the sort one enjoys, in other words, without always ...

  • Individual, Institution, and Society: Religion and Political Economy in
           Harriet Beecher Stowe
    • Abstract: Harrier Beecher Stowe worried about the influence of political economy. Advertised as the science of wealth, political economy offered to explain the structure of society in terms of the exchanges of property among self-interested, independent individuals. To Stowe’s dismay, this science left little room for a God who was involved in daily affairs. Even more insidiously in Stowe’s mind, political economy threatened those institutions—the sets of rules that govern the interactions among individuals—that had secured society’s moral foundation. In justifying slavery, political economy supported an institution that was corrupting the religious institutions of the family and the church. Without these institutions, Stowe ... Read More

  • Drawing the Short Straw: Casting Lots and Cannibal Democracy in Antebellum
           Maritime Literature
    • Abstract: Heaven’s favor and good-luck mark the seventh form of rule, where we bring a man forward for a casting of lots, and declare that if he gains the lot he will most justly be ruler, but if he fails he shall take his place among the ruled.The question of if and when to eat another human being is a difficult one. It has exercised moral philosophers for centuries. Though countless sailors have heard dogwatch yarns about shipwreck and cannibalism, precious few firsthand accounts of the taboo feast have been committed to writing. Certainly more sailors engaged in cannibalism than wrote about it over the course of the long nineteenth century. There were many reasons for keeping details of the act locked within one’s own ...

  • Hawthorne’s English Material: The Civil War in Our Old Home
    • Abstract: Our Old Home offers compelling insight into the complexities of Hawthorne’s pro-peace leanings during the American Civil War. Far from a throwaway work written primarily to make money (though Hawthorne’s precarious finances at the time certainly made money a consideration), the English essays extend Hawthorne’s early skepticism and resistance to rigidity, but now in the context of and registering a deep anxiety about the war and its destruction. Through its well-remarked division of the material and the ideal along nationalistic lines, whereby all that is English is flesh and blood and all that is American is abstract and theoretic, the volume engages and ultimately critiques the too-rigid adherence to principle ...

  • Boardinghouse Fiction and the American Family in the Boarding-House of the
           Seven Gables
    • Abstract: Early in Nathaniel Hawthorne’s The House of the Seven Gables (1851), financial need drives Hepzibah Pyncheon, an elderly spinster living in genteel poverty in her ancestral mansion, to reopen a cent-shop created nearly a century earlier by an impecunious ancestor. By “leaving the entrance free—more than free—welcome, as if all were household friends—to every passer-by” (40) or “housebreaker” (42), the cent-shop in a ground-level room opens Hepzibah to the outside world.1 Critics have read that opening in three ways: as the market’s penetration into the private realm, as drawing the aristocratic Pyncheons out of their isolating “circle of gentility” (44) and into the public, or as an allegory of the author’s need to ...

  • What’s Mine: Involuntary Expressions, Modern Personality, and the
           Right to Privacy
    • Abstract: In two Newsboy Tobacco Company trading cards depicting the light opera singer Marion Manola, a feathered cap adorns her dark, cropped, curly hair but expresses differently. The feather has a lyrical curve in figure 1, where in figure 2 it almost disappears, hiding, maybe waiting to be seen. In figure 1, the dramatic lighting against dark wood panels coaxes the buttons on her velvet bodice to glint and gleam, where in figure 2 the same bodice is more muted, her figure only one of many accessories lost amid the staged flotsam and jetsam “offstage.” Her legs are poised in both, one delicate foot in front of the other; her left hand clutches a sword holstered at her hip; fringe dangles from the sash slung across her ...

  • Joaquín’s Head: Theatrical Punishment, Public Address, and Novelistic
           Politics in the United States–Mexico Borderlands
    • Abstract: In the closing pages of John Rollin Ridge’s The Life and Adventures of Joaquin Murieta (1854), readers encounter a scene of colonial violence: a decapitated head and an amputated hand, both preserved in alcohol and set out on public display.1 The head belongs to the novel’s eponymous protagonist, a Sonoran bandit whose conflicts with the US legal regime being established in Gold Rush California have been the subject of the narrative up to that point; the hand belongs to Three-Fingered Jack, Joaquin’s top lieutenant. These characters were killed, their body parts taken for identification and display, by a group of California state rangers as part of an effort to consolidate US power in the region, which had been ...

  • Yearning to Breathe Free: Emma Lazarus’s Queer Innovations
    • Abstract: It is hard to say whether there has ever been much critical consensus about Emma Lazarus. Though the subject of numerous critical studies, Lazarus is often dismissed as just one more orthodox poet of the late nineteenth century, whose fame begins and ends with her sonnet “The New Colossus” (1883) and its enshrinement in the Statue of Liberty. Opinions vary on most aspects of her life and art. Lazarus’s relationship to Judaism, for example: Some critics situate her as the original Jewish American poet, “the grand old lady of Jewish-American literature,” while others have begun to recontextualize her “as the culmination of [the] earlier efforts” of a long line of less well-known Jewish American writers and thinkers ...
