  • The Ambivalent Pleasure of Teaching Early American Literature in a Prison
    • Abstract: My favorite writer is Herman Melville. It would be difficult for me to articulate all of the reasons why, but I think part of it is that I identify with the flawed nature of his protagonists. I think of them as desperate to latch on to some form of tangible, fulfilling truth in this fleeting and chaotic life. At the same time, their quixotic quests and the postures they affect when puffed up with the profundity of their epic endeavors can render them ever so slightly clownish.Perhaps my favorite example of this sort of Melvillian protagonist is Tommo from Typee. Fed up with the privation of the seemingly interminable voyage of the Dolly and the tyranny of Captain Vangs, Tommo heroically escapes from the whale ship ... Read More

  • The Radicals' Reconstruction: Jewett at Port Royal
    • Abstract: I am grateful for Vesna Kuiken's recent essay ("'Fit to Be Free': From Race to Capacity . . .") on Sarah Orne Jewett's "The Mistress of Sydenham Plantation" (Fall 2017). The historical and conceptual framework Kuiken provides for reading this understudied text expands our approach to the literature of Reconstruction, a valuable contribution that I believe might be extended by exploring further the story's interest in the role of Northern reformers in the implementation of Southern Reconstruction. To wit, following Kuiken's generative focus on the key concept of capacity, we might look to Jewett's treatment of the Port Royal Experiment for what it reveals about the co-optation of social radicalism in this ...

  • Response to D'Alessandro's "George Lippard's 'Theatre of Hell':
           
    • Abstract: What a delight to be writing one of the inaugural Letters for J19, and an especial pleasure to be writing it about Michael D'Alessandro's terrific essay "George Lippard's 'Theatre of Hell': Apocalyptic Melodrama and Working-Class Spectatorship in the Quaker City" (Fall 2017). For me, one of the major achievements of this essay is that it bridges what has long been a major gap in nineteenth-century American literary and cultural studies—that between scholarship on the printed word and work on the theater. That's not to say that there's no overlap within the work of specific scholars: Robin Bernstein, Brigitte Fielder, Laura Mielke, and others move elegantly between genres. But there are rarely attempts to put the ... Read More

  • Stowe's Birds: Jim Crows and the Nature of Resistance in Dred
    • Abstract: "When little boys go out into the woods and fields which God has filled with beautiful trees and flowers, and with hundreds of little happy birds, all so curiously and beautifully made, and amuse themselves only with throwing stones at them, and killing them, must not God be displeased'""I never kill the birds, because the Lord hath set them between us and the angels for a sign."On July 6, 1843, Harriet Beecher Stowe's brother George died in a freak accident shooting at birds, a mysterious yet violent event that would resurface in variant forms throughout her canon. Stowe recounts: "Noticing the birds destroying his fruit and injuring his plants, he went for a double-barreled gun, which he scarcely ever had used . ... Read More

  • From Loose Leaves to Readymades: Manuscript Books in the Age of Emerson
           and Whitman
    • Abstract: As schools, libraries, and lecture halls provided the infrastructure for "literary leisure"1 during the first half of the nineteenth century, the era's paper producers rushed to meet the demands of industrialized presses and newly literate citizens eager to employ their pens and pencils.2 To furnish the latter with material to process the rising tide of information, stationers offered an array of readymade ledgers, diaries, and other paper storage formats, in which to record the expenses, earnings, and moral lessons of the day. Thus, between 1830 and 1860 readymade manuscript books began displacing the loose-leaf assemblages that were more common around and long before 1800. Consequently, the readymade manuscript ...

  • Signs in the Heavens and the Distress of Nations
    • Abstract: After hearing Nat Turner's testimony in November 1831 regarding the recent insurrection he had led and reminding him of his inevitable execution, Thomas Gray asked Turner whether he knew anything about "any extensive or concerted plan" among slaves beyond Southampton County, Virginia:His answer was, I do not. When I questioned him as to the insurrection in North Carolina happening about the same time, he denied any knowledge of it; and when I looked him in the face as though I would search his inmost thoughts, he replied, "I see sir, you doubt my word; but can you not think the same ideas, and strange appearances about this time in the heaven's might prompt others, as well as myself, to this undertaking."1 ...

  • Writing the Criminal Child: Antebellum Prison Records, Parenting Manuals,
           and the Rise of the Incorrigible Child
    • Abstract: Let Society beware, when the outcast, vicious, reckless multitude of New York boys, swarming now every foul alley and low street, come to know their power and use it!For nineteenth-century Americans, the futurity often associated with childhood could hold as much menace as promise. When the philanthropist Charles Loring Brace describes the New York boys whom he wishes to reform, his prevailing tone is not a familiar concern about the vulnerabilities of children. It is instead a pronounced fear, centered on the unpredictable, uncontrollable future that "outcast, vicious, reckless" children would bring. Brace is, of course, hyperbolic in the cause of fundraising, but his logic reflects a much larger set of ... Read More

    • Abstract: In 1905 leaders of the Five Tribes (Cherokee, Chickasaw, Choctaw, Mvskoke-Creek, and Seminole) and a number of prominent white businessmen launched a statehood campaign to admit Indian Territory into the United States as the state of Sequoyah.1 According to the Cherokee Advocate, the official newspaper of the Cherokee Nation, the newspaper editor J. S. Holden penned a poem that circulated at the September statehood convention.2 The ode lyrically celebrated the state's namesake Sequoyah, who famously developed the Cherokee syllabary with his daughter in the early nineteenth century.3 He is described in Holden's poem as one who "stood alone" and whose "genius shone / Throughout a hemisphere."4 By naming the proposed ...

  • Structure, Network, Apocalypse: The Complicity Fiction of George Lippard
    • Abstract: George Lippard, the bestselling novelist in America in the 1840s, is familiar to literary scholars today because he helped launch the sensationally popular genre of the "city mysteries and miseries" novel in the United States and, connected with this, helped create a new kind of novel whose thickly interlaced plotlines, vertiginous structure, and generic layering conveyed social and moral dimensions of urban experience inaccessible to more conventional literary and journalistic modes of picturing the city.1 This essay argues that Lippard's bold experimentation with novelistic form followed directly from his preoccupation with the concept of urban complicity, or the witting and unwitting ways city residents ...

  • Introduction: "Nineteenth-Century" "American" "Theater" and "Performance"
    • Abstract: When Vice President Mike Pence took his family to see Hamilton on Broadway not long after Pence and his boss, Donald Trump, had improbably won the White House, he was no doubt expecting to be entertained by Lin-Manuel Miranda's free-styling hit musical. Instead, Brandon Victor Dixon, playing Aaron Burr in this production, used the occasion of Pence's visit to rebuke the new administration, delivering an improvised monologue at the end of the show. "We, sir—we—are the diverse America who are alarmed and anxious that your new administration will not protect us, our planet, our children, our parents, or defend us and uphold our inalienable rights," Dixon stated. "We truly hope that this show has inspired you to uphold ... Read More

  • The Nineteenth Century; or, Marking Time in American Performance Culture
    • Abstract: Theaters were draped in black and the nation plunged into mourning as tens of thousands of Americans bid farewell to George Washington after his death on December 14, 1799. Playhouses vied with each other to memorialize the celebrated leader who, for many, emblematized the virtues of the young republic. The revolution that Washington had helped to lead only two decades before had witnessed thousands of funerals—not only those of the soldiers and civilians who lost their lives in battle but also the countless symbolic burials and resurrections of the figure of Liberty.1 Through these staged rituals, white Americans consecrated wartime deaths as heroic sacrifices with a promised rebirth into freedom. Washington's ... Read More

  • American; or, The Emergence of Audiences and their Blackface Salve
    • Abstract: Alexis de Tocqueville was by no means the first theorist of theater's relation to democracy, but in the nineteenth-century American context he is certainly the most significant and lasting. His "A Few Remarks on the Theater of Democratic Nations" touches on several of the conceptual and historiographical concerns that have preoccupied scholars of American literature and performance, among them literacy and cultural nationalism; the advent of mass entertainments; the relationship between aesthetic innovation and traditionalism; and the sociology of culture. Emblematic of Tocqueville's aphoristic style that runs through sections of volume 2 of Democracy in America, the short chapter unfolds almost as a series of ... Read More

  • Theater; or, Looking beyond Plays and Places
    • Abstract: Alas: some readers, having read nothing but my title, are already annoyed with me. This is because many US theater practitioners, professors, and aficionados have surprisingly strong opinions about how "theater" should be spelled. The subject comes up perennially and persistently in articles, blog posts, and conference panels.1 It seems the spelling debate gained considerable rigor in 1962, when the New York Times quietly changed its editorial policy to use theater instead of theatre—even going so far as to "correct" the names of theaters that called themselves Theatres.2 But the dispute can be traced back to 1789, when Noah Webster advocated for a pronunciation-based approach to US spelling in his Dissertations on ...

  • Performance; or, Answering a Call from the Nineteenth Century
    • Abstract: To a historian of performance, the most important thing to know about the nineteenth century is that it isn't over yet. Even today it continues to reappear as a mixed legacy of durable behaviors. Defined by Richard Schechner as "restored behavior" or "twice-behaved behavior"—that which can be reiterated the second time or "the nth time"—performance, however ambitiously innovative it may seem to be, tends to adhere to preexisting prompts. As drama means action, so performance means the fulfillment of a potential: the former arranges events in a sequence, the latter answers their prompt. Answer the prompt, actors will tell you, and the embodied experience will follow. Even though any performance by living actors ... Read More
