  • An Impossible Woman: Henry James and the Mysterious Case of Anne Moncure
           Crane
    • Abstract: “Isn’t there a theory that women forgive injuries, but never ignomininies?”“That’s what the novelists teach, and we bachelors get most of our doctrine about women from them. . . . We don’t go to nature for our impressions; but neither do the novelists, for that matter.”On January 30, 1873, the Nation ran a modest, one-paragraph obituary marking the death of Mrs. A. M. C. Seemuller, “better known by her maiden name, Anne Moncure Crane,” and still better as the “Author of ‘Emily Chester.’” But the entry, though it was written on the occasion of Crane’s death at the age of thirty-four, says very little about the author. Instead, it offers a series of strange and indecorous castigations of Emily Chester, a novel by ... Read More

  • Susan Lenox: Reading and Rising
    • Abstract: “And the reading she had done—the novels, the memoirs, the books of travel, the fashion and home magazines—had made deep and distinct impressions upon her, had prepared her—as they have prepared thousands of Americans in secluded towns and rural regions where luxury and comfort were very crude indeed—for the possible rise of fortune that is the universal American dream and hope.”Throughout Susan Lenox (1917), David Graham Phillips’ eponymous central character strives to be highly and diversely literate as she overcomes the limits of her gendered existence.2 Even while working as a prostitute, milliner, or factory worker with little recreation time or disposable income, Susan endeavors to master a wide variety of ...

  • Forgetting the Uncomfortable: Reading the Shadows of Retail Labor in
           Sister Carrie and Susan Lenox
    • Abstract: “The plea was that of a gaunt-faced man of about thirty, who looked the picture of privation and wretchedness. Drouet was the first to see. He handed over a dime with an upwelling feeling of pity in his heart. Hurstwood scarcely noticed the incident. Carrie quickly forgot.”“I must forget that, for I can’t be happy again until I do. I understand now why the comfortable people can be happy. They keep from knowing or they make themselves forget.”When Susan Lenox walks into Sternberg’s department store with money to spend, she restricts herself to quiet purchases, selecting “plain, serviceable things,” including “the simplest of simple hats” (I, 387–8). This restrained scene of consumption from David Graham Phillips’ ... Read More

  • “A Transparent Medium”: Mary Hallock Foote’s The Led-Horse Claim and
           the Mapping of Leadville
    • Abstract: In 1879, Clarence King, director of the United States Geological Survey (USGS), initiated a series of monographs concerning the nation’s mining districts, the purpose of which was to record the locations of metal deposits as well as the manner in which they could be extracted. The inaugural volume of the series, Geology and Mining Industry of Leadville, Colorado: with Atlas, was published in 1886, though the accompanying atlas actually preceded the publication of the monograph by three years.1 In the same year the atlas appeared, Mary Hallock Foote’s first novel came out in book form as The Led-Horse Claim: A Romance of a Mining Camp.2 Foote doesn’t appear to have seen this atlas or monograph, though as the wife of ...

  • The Dillingham Case and Charles W. Chesnutt’s “The Passing of
           Grandison”
    • Abstract: “The Passing of Grandison” is a distinguished example of Charles W. Chesnutt’s short fiction. A staple in American literature anthologies, it has engendered considerable scholarly analysis and critical acclaim.1 Surprisingly, though, an important source for the story has gone unacknowledged: the case of Richard Dillingham, a Quaker abolitionist, who died while imprisoned for being a “Negro stealer”2 in Nashville, Tennessee, in 1850. Chesnutt’s retelling of this forgotten history is significant not only for what it memorializes, but also for what it presages: the more fully developed treatment of historical material in his first novel, The Marrow of Tradition (1901).Originally published in Chesnutt’s second ...

  • Thomas Jefferson Snodgrass Goes to England
    • Abstract: In late 1856 and early 1857, three comic letters appeared in the Keokuk Post signed “Thomas Jefferson Snodgrass.”1 Written in an exaggerated vernacular, the letters relate the humorous adventures of a wide-eyed Keokuk bumpkin, who travels for the first time to big cities like St. Louis, Chicago, and Cincinnati. Snodgrass variously finds himself amazed by the steam action of a train, baffled by the events of Shakespeare’s Julius Caesar, startled at the hellishness of Chicago, and tricked into taking a baby in a basket (whom he is later caught trying to dispose of in water).2 Snodgrass is, in short, a gentle idiot. He is also a work of fiction, created by a young Samuel Clemens. Writing under a pseudonym, Clemens ... Read More

  • A Second Samuel Clemens
    • Abstract: A trio of reports about Samuel Clemens’ early life seem at odds with other established facts of his biography. Robert Sattelmeyer marshaled evidence some twenty years ago that in September 1854 Clemens may have “perpetrated a hoax on the Boston Vigilance Committee, representing himself as an abused abolitionist to secure the price of a railroad ticket between Missouri and the East Coast.” Sattelmeyer conceded that “the verifiability of this episode rests upon the slender reed” of a “single notation” in an account book of the treasurer of the Vigilance Committee.1 Edgar Marquess Branch also noted over twenty years ago that the Mississippi riverboat captain R. N. Allaback claimed “to have been Clemens’ pilot partner ... Read More

  • The Altar at Home: Sentimental Literature and Nineteenth-Century American
           Religion by Claudia Stokes (review)
    • Abstract: With her impressive volume, The Altar at Home, Claudia Stokes situates the burgeoning production of sentimental writers, before and after the Civil War and carried out mainly by women, within the similarly burgeoning field of Protestant religion, some of it wildcat and most of it controversial. The “Altar” in the title of Stokes’ ambitious account refers to the ways in which many writers coupled their religious fervor and piety with a domestic philosophy of influence and right feelings within the home. These authors, mainly women in this telling, drew upon the themes and teachings of various Christian sects, especially the Methodists, known in their heyday before the Civil War as highly original in their teachings ...

  • Territories of Empire: U.S. Writing from the Louisiana Purchase to Mexican
           Independence by Andy Doolen (review)
    • Abstract: From Oxford University Press’s Studies in American Literary History series comes Andy Doolen’s study of Anglo-American writings that chart the U.S. as a territorial empire in the early part of the nineteenth century. These “cartographic texts,” as Doolen calls them, are not precursors to the more familiar 1845 proclamation of “Manifest Destiny”; rather, the era that saw the Louisiana Purchase, Mexican Independence, and the Monroe Doctrine ushered “an uneven, unpredictable, and often unplanned process of territorialization” that, Doolen maintains, inaugurated the culture of U.S. empire-building through state sanctioned expansion and private business ventures, filibustering, and travel into historic or occupied ...

  • Immersive Words: Mass Media, Visuality, and American Literature,
           1839–1893 by Shelly Jarenski (review)
    • Abstract: Shelly Jarenski’s Immersive Words: Mass Media, Visuality, and American Literature, 1839–1893 focuses on the dynamic interrelation between literary texts and emerging visual technologies and practices such as the daguerreotype, panoramas, and exhibition culture. Countering comparative approaches, Jarenski argues for an understanding of this relationship as one of convergence, a “representational interdependence” of literary and visual forms out of which new aesthetics arise. Immersive Words identifies how these aesthetics are employed by two divergent discourses: an ideological project to normalize a white middle-class subjectivity; and a “counteraesthetic discourse” in the work of Melville, Douglass, Hawthorne, and ...

  • How Robert Frost Made Realism Matter by Jonathan N. Barron (review)
    • Abstract: Nowhere does Jonathan Barron tell us that How Robert Frost Made Realism Matter is an intellectual biography of the poet’s first forty years. In fact, it is not until page 141 that he reveals that he numbers himself among Frost’s biographers.This book tells the story of a notable poet’s mind and how it’s related to his work. Always inquisitive about what the philosophers, psychologists, and teachers of his time had to say about the mind’s understanding of the reality it would acknowledge and explain, the young poet was nearly single-minded in his quest to join those thinkers he admired in their search not only for truth but their need to make something real of the life they experienced. Students of Frost’s life and ... Read More

    • Abstract: Andrew Levy. Huck Finn’s America: Mark Twain and the Era that Shaped His Masterpiece.

Berkeley: Univ. of California Press, 2013. 295 pp. Cloth, $27.50.The director of a university press once told me that any book with “Mark Twain” in the title would sell. These three books illustrate the point. Unfortunately, none of them is very good. The first two contain nothing new, and the third contains virtually nothing new worth knowing. None of them rises to the level of a respectable ... Read More
