  • Introduction: Matters of Race in the Age of Realism
    • Abstract: This special issue marks key developments that make apparent the social and cultural processes of racial formation and representation at the turn of the nineteenth century. Here visual culture opens and closes the issue to different ends. Adam Sonstegard's discussion of Clyde DeLand's illustrations of Charles Chesnutt's The Wife of His Youth and Other Stories of the Color Line recounts the negotiations between author and illustrator, between story and image, and between the collaborative production of their literary-graphic illustrations and the prevailing racialist codes that Chesnutt's readership expected. Marissa K. López's closing essay examines the relationship between oral narratives (testimonios), their ... Read More

  • Charles Chesnutt, Clyde DeLand, and Literary-Graphic Illustration on the
           Color Line
    • Abstract: The Wife of His Youth and Other Stories of the Color Line (1899) is Charles Wad-dell Chesnutt's only book-length work to be published with multiple illustrations during the author's lifetime. It arrived when mainstream firms like Houghton Mifflin seldom marketed African Americans' works and rarely illustrated them. It appeared as comparatively crude, minstrel caricatures from such artists as E. W. Kemble and A. B. Frost dominated American print-representations of racial Others. It was the only major African American publication its illustrator, Clyde Osmer DeLand, ever rendered. DeLand's illustrations respond minutely to Chesnutt's characters' subtle skin-tone gradations and attend to Chesnutt's displacements of ... Read More

  • "I'll Publish Your Cowardice All Over California": María Amparo Ruiz de
           Burton's The Squatter and the Don in the Age of Howells
    • Abstract: In 1885, at the height of the movement in literary realism in the United States, W. D. Howells and Mexican-American writer María Amparo Ruiz de Burton published strikingly parallel novels featuring the businessmen of the late-nineteenth century. Howells' The Rise of Silas Lapham, serialized in Century between november 1884 and August 1885, was well received across the country.1 A review in the Overland Monthly hailed it as the "best" of Howells' work thus far and dubbed Howells "the most significant figure in American literature today [and] the man who has given American novel-writing its standing."2 Judging Silas Lapham by Howellsian criteria, the Overland commended its "simple, natural, and honest" qualities: ...

  • The Squared City: Prizefighting, Tenement Reform, and Spatial Physiognomy
           at the Turn of the Century
    • Abstract: In the opening to Abraham Cahan's novella Yekl: A Tale of the New York Ghetto (1896), Jake—the eponymous Yekl—is introduced to the reader in the middle of an "impromptu lecture" on American prizefighting.1 Set during work hours in a small tenement garment shop in a Jewish immigrant district, the men and women of the shop kill time while waiting for their boss to return with more work. One half of the shop listens to Jake talk about boxing while the rest are occupied with the small tasks of adapting to their American environment—one reads an English newspaper, another seems to pray over a Yiddish socialist magazine, two young men compare stories about actors of the Jewish stage, and another uses his free time to ...

  • The Sentimental Realisms of S. Alice Callahan's Wynema: A Child of the
           Forest
    • Abstract: S. Alice Callahan's Wynema: A Child of the Forest (1891) opens with a romanticized and inaccurate image of the Muscogee people living in tepees.1 Because the novel fails to establish either a canonical or a racially representative realism, it has been identified as sentimental, romantic, melodramatic, ethnographic, assimilationist, and even polemical; critics have tied it to temperance narratives, reform discourse, Native history, and the protest novel. Although associated with myriad genres, Wynema has not been located in relation to the centrally important late-nineteenth-century rise of realism. While the novel challenges canonical definitions of the genre, it engages both antebellum realist questions of ethnic ... Read More

  • Picturing Mexican America in the Age of Realism
    • Abstract: Charles Nahl's "The Elopement" (1875) depicts the 1829 marriage of Henry Fitch and Josefa Carrillo. In the painting, a smiling vaquero sits astride a galloping horse before which a duck, bill open in an angry squawk, flees. The vaquero places a protective, possessive arm around a young woman in a white dress, her head and shoulders covered in a yellow shawl. Her ruffled skirts blow in the same wind billowing her lover's jacket and tossing the horse's mane. The couple looks boldly at the viewer, smiling from within this scene of high-speed, romantic adventure and suffused with the lush colors of sunset. (Figure 1)The same year Nahl painted "The Elopement," Josefa Carrillo spoke to Enrique Cerruti about the real life ... Read More

  • Epistolary Politics: A Recovered Letter from Frances E. W. Harper to
           William Still
    • Abstract: Frances Ellen Watkins Harper (1825–1911), one of the most popular black women writers of the nineteenth century, has until recently largely been relegated to the margins of critical examinations of nineteenth-century African American literature. During her lifetime, however, she was an extremely prolific and popular lecturer, poet, writer, and activist. Born in Baltimore, Maryland, of free parents, Harper engaged in political and literary endeavors from an early age. At the age of twenty, she published Forest Leaves (1846), her first book of poetry.1 In 1854, Harper embarked on what would become a lifelong career as a public speaker, which began with her first public anti-slavery speech titled "Education and the ...

           from Recollections, Interviews, and Memoirs by Family, Friends, and
           Associates ed. by Jane Donahue Eberwein, Stephanie Farrar, and Cristanne
           Miller (review)
    • Abstract: Dickinson in Her Own Time, a recent addition to the "Writers in Their Own Time" series under the general editorship of Joel Myerson, is a wonderfully lively introduction to the poet and an engaging reference work. The book opens with an impressive introduction that makes clear its aims and its primary contributions to Dickinson studies. This is followed by a chronology, and the main body of the work: letters, reminiscences, and reviews divided into three sections. This new edition of contemporary responses to the poet, foundational for later scholarly publications such as Willis J. Buckingham's Emily Dickinson's Reception in the 1880s and the two standard biographies, Richard B. Sewall's The Life of Emily Dickinson ... Read More

  • Willa Cather and the Nineteenth Century ed. by Anne L. Kaufman and Richard
           H. Millington (review)
    • Abstract: Refashioning conference proceedings into edited collections is risky. The contributions may not be similar enough to compose. The quality of the essays is often variable, ranging from barely revised talks to fully expanded and transformed pieces. Too often, the target audience for the collection ends up feeling like conference attendees rather than the scholarly community at large.Based on material originally delivered at the Thirteenth International Willa Cather Seminar in 2011, Willa Cather and the Nineteenth Century exhibits none of these problems. The editors, Anne L. Kaufman and Richard H. Millington, have done a splendid job shepherding the talks towards seventeen fine articles and—through both the book's ... Read More

  • Becoming Sui Sin Far: Early Fiction, Journalism, and Travel Writing by
           Edith Maude Eaton ed. by Mary Chapman (review)
    • Abstract: To some, the task of "recovering" works by late-nineteenth- and earlytwentieth-century American authors might seem to have already been carried out decades ago, when long-forgotten works by writers such as Rebecca Harding Davis, Charlotte Perkins Gilman, Charles Chesnutt, Kate Chopin, Mary Wilkins Freeman, and others were first unearthed from the pages of obscure periodicals and brought to the attention of readers and scholars. In this volume Mary Chapman solidly refutes such a view, at least in the case of Sui Sin Far (Edith Eaton), often held up as the first major Chinese-American author despite the fact that she was born in Britain and lived most of her life in Canada. There is, Chapman amply demonstrates, much ... Read More

  • Continuing Bonds with the Dead: Parental Grief and Nineteenth-Century
           American Authors by Harold K. Bush (review)
    • Abstract: Harold K. Bush's latest book is scholarship tenderly and elegantly written in a minor key. Bush explores the effect of parental grief on five American authors and their writings—Harriet Beecher Stowe, Abraham Lincoln, W.D. Howells, Mark Twain, and W. E. B. Dubois—each of whom experienced the death of a beloved child.Bush frames his study with a discussion of American movements in grief management over the past hundred and fifty years, arguing that "the burdens of grief triggered transformation, rejection, and (sometimes) a sense of redemption" and led all five writers to a "direct involvement in the struggles for African Americans to attain civil rights." Bush also explores the redemptive power psychologist Erik ... Read More

  • Edith Wharton and Cosmopolitanism ed. by Meredith L. Goldsmith and Emily
           J. Orlando (review)
    • Abstract: The word cosmopolitanism defies easy explanation. This is in spite of the fact that, as a concept, cosmopolitanism helps to explain much of the social, cultural, and material preoccupations that appear on display in late-nineteenth- and early-twentieth-century American literature. As editors Meredith L. Goldsmith and Emily J. Orlando point out in the introduction to their new volume Edith Wharton and Cosmopolitanism, this period was "marked by revolutions in technologies of communication and travel," which resulted in a heightened interest in tourism but also in what Goldsmith and Orlando label "a benign appreciation of difference" among American elites. To know and experience difference during this era was ... Read More

  • Artistic Liberties: American Literary Realism and Graphic Illustration,
           1880–1905 by Adam Sonstegard (review)
    • Abstract: The title of Adam Sonstegard's excellent new book hints at what distinguishes this study from earlier explorations of graphic illustration in American fiction. Whereas other scholars have theorized (sometimes luminously) about the synergies of text and image, Sonstegard is more interested in the sort of friction that occurs when a visual artist takes "artistic liberties" with a written text. In one sense this seems like a fairly humdrum affair. Mark Twain's contemporaries knew right from the start that Dan Beard's illustrations for A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur's Court inserted literally unauthorized content into the novel, and Twain even conceded, with priceless humility, that "the illustrations are better ...
