  • Letters from the People: A Response to Radiclani Clytus
    • Abstract: It is a real pleasure to compose this letter in response to Radiclani Clytus’s invigorating and absolutely necessary “Visualizing Black Print: The Brooklyn Correspondence of William J. Wilson aka ‘Ethiop’” (Spring 2018). As Clytus notes, Wilson is not exactly unknown to scholars of nineteenth-century American literature, and especially not to those who focus on African American literature and culture. In 2015, for example, Leif Eckstrom and Britt Rusert edited a digital edition of Wilson’s 1859 “Afric-American Picture Gallery” for the Just Teach One: Early African American Print initiative. But while scholars may be aware of Wilson’s earlier correspondence to Frederick Douglass’ Paper, published under the pseudonym ... Read More

  • Dread: The Phobic Imagination in Antislavery Literature
    • Abstract: A poem printed in The Liberator in 1849 opens in the style of a riddle:Published under the pseudonym “Hezekiah Humankind,” the poem targets a disease that had been attracting attention since the mid-1830s. An article published by New Hampshire abolitionist Nathaniel Peabody Rogers in 1838 addressed the same topic. “Our people have got it,” Rogers begins cryptically. “They have got it in the blue, collapse stage. Many of them have got it so bad, they can’t get well. They will die of it. It will be a mercy if the nation does not.”2 Defined as a morbid “dread of complexion,” the malady known as “colorphobia” conjured a vicious antagonist. “This color-phobia [sic] is making terrible havoc among our communities,” Rogers ...

    • Abstract: The poet is . . . the man without impediment, who sees and handles that which others dream of, traverses the whole scale of experience, and is representative of man, in virtue of being the largest power to receive and to impart...He is the true and only doctor.In the December 6, 1890, issue of The Literary World, Boston critic Arlo Bates reviews Emily Dickinson’s first edition of poems. He describes Dickinson as “a woman possessing, and possessed by, a share of genius” but emphasizes her incapacities:Few fine minds have been more debarred from expression. Whatever may have been the cause, whether natural bias or long custom, Miss Dickinson was a Laura Bridgman, her avenues of spiritual communication being closed or ... Read More

  • Absent-Minded Historicism
    • Abstract: Absence becomes an active practice, a business (which keeps me from doing anything else); there is a creation of a fiction which has many roles.In their introduction to a special issue of Critical Quarterly titled “Missing Texts,” Adam Smyth and Gill Partington note that “all scholarship proceeds, in one way or another, in the shadow of the missing.” Moreover, they suggest, “Absence is generative. We need missing texts.”1 Indeed, absence is both a problem for literary historicism and a necessary authorization of its practice. Although historical analysis always strives to ground itself in what happened, it is at its core an imaginative methodology. It requires the practitioner to speculate about what might have ...

  • Delirium So Real: Mark Twain’s Spectacular History
    • Abstract: The spectacle, as the present social organization of the paralysis of history and memory, of the abandonment of history built on the foundation of historical time, is the false consciousness of time.And such dreams! such strange and awful dreams, Sandy! Dreams that were as reality—delirium, of course, but so real!On January 5, 1889, Mark Twain, James Paige, and others gathered in Hartford to witness the first successful test run of what Twain called the “most marvelous invention ever contrived by man,” the Paige Compositor (fig. 1).3 The story of the compositor begins in 1872, when Paige first patented an early prototype of the machine. Its purpose was to automate the process of distributing, setting, and ... Read More

  • Paul Laurence Dunbar’s Metapoetics
    • Abstract: In a 1906 eulogy published in The Voice of the Negro, Mary Church Terrell recounts the rise to fame and literary accomplishments of her friend Paul Laurence Dunbar.1 She opens by narrating Dunbar’s first poetry reading at the 1892 Western Association of Writers from the perspective of Dr. James Newton, the man who later tracked down the nineteen-year-old poet at his job as an elevator operator in Dayton’s Callahan Building:Great was the surprise of the audience to see stepping lightly down the aisle, between the rows of fluttering fans and assembled beauty and wit of Dayton, a slender Negro lad, as black as the core of Cheop’s pyramid. He ascended the rostrum with the coolness and dignity of a cultured entertainer ... Read More

  • Mineral Melville
    • Abstract: Think you there is no sensation in being a rock'Herman Melville may be best remembered for his sea tales, but his least-read novel, Mardi, reminds us that Melville was also a writer of the earth, terra scriptor, whose insights into our planet’s rocky, inanimate worlds are increasingly relevant for discussions of environmental ethics in the Anthropocene. Rich with “sedimentary strata” and imagery of terrestrial “treasures”—gold, silver, diamonds, granite—Mardi reveals Melville thinking on a planetary scale through the nineteenth-century sciences of geology, mineralogy, and astronomy (229, 397). For Melville, the geologist and the novelist share a similar fascination with the pressures of creation and the elegant ... Read More

  • The Last Cleric: Ann Douglas, Intellectual Authority, and the Legacy of
           Feminization
    • Abstract: At the 2016 annual convention of the Modern Language Association, Ann Douglas was awarded the prestigious Hubbell Medal honoring distinction in the field of American literary study, which has been bestowed upon such luminaries as Cleanth Brooks, Leslie Fiedler, and Robert Penn Warren. In their introductory remarks, the Hubbell Medal prize committee noted the remarkable disciplinary impact of Douglas’s landmark study, The Feminization of American Culture (1977), describing it as a “brilliantly researched” “classic” that significantly altered scholarly perceptions of nineteenth-century American women writers. Although these writers had been dismissed for generations as minor figures, the medal committee noted, The ... Read More

  • On Our Cover for 7.1
    • Abstract: If you are not an art historian (professional or dabbler) you might be surprised to learn that John Frederick Kensett, who painted Newport Rocks in 1872, was considered a member of the Hudson River School. The painting is certainly a landscape, but it seems entirely lacking in the grandeur that was the calling card of artists like Thomas Cole. Where is the mistily veiled mountain peak' The majestic waterfall' The tiny figures in the foreground, gesturing up at the gigantic landscape as if to say, “We are not worthy!”' To be fair, Kensett’s paintings from the 1850s and 1860s are much closer to the Hudson River ideal, and thus his late work has always been something of a puzzle for art historians. As Herbert Hartel ... Read More

  • Dissent C19 Conference
    • Abstract: C19: The Society of Nineteenth-Century Americanists seeks submissions for its sixth biennial conference, April 2–5, 2020 in Coral Gables, Florida. We invite individual paper, panel, and roundtable proposals on literature and culture in and beyond the United States during the long nineteenth century.Our theme aims to inspire a broad consideration of varied forms of “dissent”: nonconformity to existing identities, institutions, policies, practices, and norms in this period. What constitutes “dissent”' How do we think through dissent genealogically—that is, how might nineteenth-century dissent offer a means of examining contemporary circumstances and formations'We also hope to engender discussions about dissent in ...

  • Unreadable Pleasures
    • Abstract: Graecum est, non legitur.This past spring, I asked the students in my comp lit seminar to take a stab at translating Gertrude Stein’s “Rose is a rose is a rose is a rose” into another language. While most of them fashioned Spanish, French, or German versions of the iconic line, one tried to write it in her native Mandarin. The results impressed the only other native Chinese speaker in the class, but the rest of us were not able to appreciate the achievement:玫瑰有三種存在形式﹕作為一朵玫瑰,作為一朵玫瑰的存在,作為一種存在的玫瑰存在。Eager to get a sense of what she had done, we asked my student to translate her work back into English, as if we were playing a human version of the game whereby one uses Google Translate to toggle between two languages. ...
