  • 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 ...

  • The Pleasure of the Past in the Present
    • Abstract: What does the nineteenth century look like to twenty-first-century US novelists? To which novels might nineteenth-century specialists turn to capture a sense of how the era is currently imagined and to what purposes? These are two of the questions sparking my reading over the last few years. Born and raised a nineteenth-century specialist, I tilted toward modern and, more recently, contemporary fiction. Take this report as a way of bridging enthusiasms. My account will not make us see the nineteenth century any more clearly in its contemporaneous context, but it should make a little more vivid what its contemporary meanings might be, for US novelists and for the rest of us. Beyond that, my inquiry considers the ... Read More

  • Exorbitant Optics and Lunatic Pleasures
    • Abstract: Thus, in the beginning all the World was AmericaThe whole world’s a ballWashington Irving claims he stayed up late at night wondering if scientists on the moon would discover and civilize our globe. He sympathizes in Knickerbocker’s History of New York with the humanity of American Indians by satirically equating the arrival of European ships with the aerial invasion of earth from the moon. These visitants find our “obscure little dirty planet” to be a “howling wilderness” whose denizens imbibe their gift of nitrous oxide and “are utterly destitute of tails, and of a variety of unseemly complexions, particularly of horrible whiteness, instead of pea-green.” The imperial Man in the Moon commands his settlers “to use ...

  • Narrating Slow Violence: Post-Reconstruction’s Necropolitics and
           Speculating beyond Liberal Antirace Fiction
    • Abstract: Other centuries looking back upon the culture of the nineteenth would have a right to suppose that if, in a land of freemen, eight millions of human beings were found to be dying of disease, the nation would cry with one voice, “Heal them!” If they were staggering on in ignorance, it would cry “Train them!” … but [there] was not one voice [against] the countercries and echoes, “Let them die!” “Train them like slaves!” “Let them stagger downward!”How does one tell the story of letting die? How does the African American writer plot a racial violence that unfolds according to the slow accretive time of contamination? As W. E. B. Du Bois concludes in his final remarks for his massive statistical survey of urban ... Read More

  • Melville’s Little Historical Method
    • Abstract: With a little imagination, the critical history of Herman Melville’s eighth book, Israel Potter: His Fifty Years of Exile (1855), might be said to redact the various camps and controversies of early American literary study as it exists today. Not a few scholars, to begin, have made of the text in question an occasion for nurturing a disciplinary interest in genre.1 After all, Israel Potter marked Melville’s sole extended attempt at serial composition, the installments for his then work-in-progress having made their initial run in Putnam’s magazine between the months of July 1854 and March 1855. Israel Potter is also, strictly speaking, the only historical narrative Melville wrote: he set his text in a past he’d ... Read More

           Culture, and Collaboration
    • Abstract: In February 1885 Sarah Winnemucca Hopkins, who had recently published Life among the Piutes: Their Wrongs and Claims during an Eastern lecture tour, refuted charges of her gambling reported by San Francisco’s Morning Call. Her letter underscores Life’s usefulness in managing her reputation and steering her message through the shifting mediums of lectures, newspapers, and books:This attack is no new thing. In 1879 I charged Agent [Rinehart] with driving my people into the “Bannock War.” Instead of coming forward like a man and proving himself innocent, he tried to break down my statement by attacking my character … Like a cowardly dog he went around in Platt’s Hall before my lecture began and cautioned my audience ...

  • Novel Inventions: Emerson, Whitman, and the Patent Office Gallery
    • Abstract: When Hank Morgan, the protagonist of Mark Twain’s A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur’s Court (1889), becomes prime minister of Arthurian England, his first act is to create a patent office: “For I knew that a country without a patent office and good patent laws was just a crab, and couldn’t travel any way but sideways and backwards.”1 Centuries ahead of the era in which he has found himself, he introduces inventions familiar to nineteenth-century readers—gunpowder, the telegraph, the bicycle—to Arthurian constituents. In Twain’s novel, Morgan’s political power derives from his technological mastery; by creating a patent office, he claims credit for later inventions and signals the central place of innovation in ...

  • “You Talk Like a Book”: Constance Fenimore Woolson’s Civil War
           Poetry and the Regionalization of Speech
    • Abstract: In an 1887 assessment of Constance Fenimore Woolson’s literary career, Henry James praised her for giving voice to “the voicelessness of the conquered and reconstructed South.” “Scientifically” recording “the dialect of the freedmen” and other Southerners through “careful philological study” in prose works such as Rodman the Keeper: Southern Sketches (1880) and East Angels (1886), Woolson had, according to James, anticipated the rising tide of regionalist fiction.1 Although James does not mention poetry, Woolson had begun her exploration of Southern voices in a set of poems commemorating the Civil War, most of them published from 1873 through 1877 in Appletons’ Journal, a magazine more sympathetic to the South ...

  • “I Have No Disbelief”: Spiritualism and Secular Agency in Elizabeth
           Stoddard’s The Morgesons
    • Abstract: In the preface to the 1901 reissue of The Morgesons, Two Men, and Temple House, Elizabeth Drew Barstow Stoddard tells the origin story of her writing career: “One day when my husband was sitting at the receipt of customs … I sat by a little desk, where my portfolio lay open. A pen was near, which I took up, and it began to write, wildly like ‘Planchette’ upon her board.” Describing the process of composition that had led to each of her novels, Stoddard recalls how “the shadow of a man passed before me, and I built a visionary fabric round him”; her literary productions now seem to her “as if they were written by a ghost of their time.” She quotes her distant cousin Nathaniel Hawthorne’s assessment of her debut ...

  • Why We Should Be Teaching and Writing about The Literary World’s 1850
           “Hawthorne and His Mosses”
    • Abstract: Shortly after meeting Hawthorne at a picnic in the Berkshires, Melville published “Hawthorne and His Mosses” in two parts in August 1850 issues of the New York Literary World. At a key point in the essay, Melville proclaims that Hawthorne and Shakespeare are both great artists, and that the artistic “difference between the two men is by no means immeasurable.” He uses this comparison to make his best-known statement as an American literary nationalist: “This, too, I mean, that if Shakespeare has not been equalled, he is sure to be surpassed, and surpassed by an American born now or yet to be born.”1 This passage appears in just about all versions of “Mosses” reprinted in American literature anthologies, Melville ...
