  • Early American Literature Book Prize for 2016
    • Abstract: The Early American Literature Book Prize, which in even years recognizes a first monograph, has been awarded in 2016 to Professor Robert Gunn of the University of Texas at El Paso, for Ethnology and Empire: Languages, Literature, and the Making of the North American Borderlands, published by New York University Press in 2015. Members of the prize committee describe Ethnology and Empire as “tremendously careful, historically and archivally illuminating, and intellectually provocative.” They characterize it as an “inevitable book” that will “influence thinking in anthropology, history, literary studies, and Native Studies.” They stress the way that Gunn “consistently and informatively foregrounds ...

  • “To Banter the Age”: Sir William Phips and the Wonders of the
           Modern World
    • Abstract: Upon William Phips’s return to London from his successful 1687 treasure-hunting expedition to the Caribbean, a broadside titled “An Exact and Perfect Relation” appeared in print to tell the history of this remarkable man and his seemingly magic voyage. The “Relation” claimed that the story of the New Englander and his crew’s exploits, financed by a group of investors led by the Duke of Albemarle, was one “to surmount belief it self ” (1). Indeed, the broadside’s insistence to its potentially incredulous readers that its words constituted “An Exact and Perfect Relation” of true events, howsoever “wonderful,” parallels the recounting within the text of the “Relation” of the serial efforts of Phips to convince ...

  • Insect Poetics: James Grainger, Personification, and Enlightenments Not
           Taken
    • Abstract: Since the recuperation to the canon of Scottish-born poet and physician James Grainger’s work, scholars have concentrated on book 4 of his West Indian neogeorgic The Sugar-Cane (1764) as the portion of his oeuvre with the most contemporary relevance. Here Grainger finally turns from discussions of what seem entirely prosaic topics like the care of West Indian soil (book 1), threats to the cane crop (book 2), and the conversion of raw material to commodities (book 3) to take up a problem that if it strikes readers as equally unpoetic is at least of interest to twenty-first-century audiences. Here in book 4 the poem focuses on the African-born slave population that cultivated the sugar crop, a topic relevant ... Read More

  • The Irish Contribution to the Ideological Origins of the American
           Revolution: Nonimportation and the Reception of Jonathan Swift’s Irish
           Satires in Early America
    • Abstract: When scholars study the literature and history of the eighteenth century, it is a commonplace to say that the American Revolution inspired similar Irish decolonizing events like the 1798 Rebellion of the United Irishmen or even the 1916 Easter Rising, the one hundredth anniversary of which we commemorated last year. A newly discovered document at Harvard’s Houghton Library, an original copy of a text discussed by T. H. Breen, however, reminds us that the pattern might have been the reverse (236). The 1767 Boston Nonimportation Agreement, a covenant signed by hundreds of Boston merchants to boycott British imports in the wake of the Townshend Acts—new taxes on paper, paint, lead, glass, and tea—seems to have ...

  • Writing India in Early American Women’s Fiction
    • Abstract: It has become an axiomatic truth that one cannot study the early Republic without situating it firmly within transnational networks of empire. Insofar as Britain constituted the common link between the United States and India, British imperial rule facilitated Indo-American interactions in the movement of ideas, goods, and peoples. Beyond British imperial circuits that first mediated the India-US encounter, however, the United States itself has been shaped by ideas of empire from its very inception, as argued by scholars of transnationalism in American studies who have conclusively challenged the abiding notion of American exceptionalism.1 In this context, the presence of India or the East Indies in early ...

           New Edition of the Poems
    • Abstract: Over the past thirty years, historians of the book have developed a rich and nuanced understanding of what it meant to write poetry in the early modern period and of the interplay between manuscript circulation and print production. Feminist scholars have reconstructed our understanding of women’s education during this period and recovered works by hundreds of women—from aristocrats writing Petrarchan sonnets to the wives of tradesmen publishing religious prophecies. Many scholars have become interested in the literary culture of the British Atlantic expansion. Some of these scholars of early modern England have done very good work specifically about Anne Bradstreet, placing her poetry in relation to texts ... Read More

  • A Medieval Puritan Welcomes the Early American Enlightenment: What Bible
           Commentaries Can Offer Postsecular and Literary Studies
    • Abstract: In college, I studied the history of literary criticism using a massive collection called The Critical Tradition (1989), which ran from Plato to John Guillory. I loved this big, beautiful book (Richter). It seemed to cover just about every way of looking at a text, along with patterns, stories, lines of development, tensions, contradictions, and contested views in the history of literary criticism. Even then, however, I knew that one important tradition went mostly unrepresented. The Critical Tradition was not concerned with biblical criticism; it defined “the critical tradition” in largely nonreligious terms, tracking theories of interpretation that had little to do with sacred texts. Between ... Read More

  • The Other Side of the World: Battling the Exceptional South
    • Abstract: The truth can no longer be disguised, that the peculiar domestick institutions of the Southern States, and the consequent direction which that and her soil and climate have given to her industry, has placed them . . . in opposite relation to the majority of the Union. While the idea of American Exceptionalism has suffered heavy and irreparable damage, the idea of southern Exceptionalism still flourishes. When Virginia settlers first successfully cultivated tobacco in the 1610s, they ensured the future economic viability of the United States and the regional divisions that would define the nation. It is no coincidence that this signature moment occurred at nearly the same moment that Virginia ... Read More

  • Contested Allegiances: Becoming American in the Age of Sail
    • Abstract: When Frederick Douglass, escaping from slavery by train in 1838, is accosted by the conductor to produce his “free papers,” Douglass does one better, presenting the sailor’s protection papers of a friend and declaring, “I have a paper with the American eagle on it, that will carry me round the world” (199). Douglass feels further insulated from detection by the “sailor style” of his clothing (red shirt, tarpaulin hat, black cravat loose at the neck), the “sailor’s talk” of which he is capable, and his intimate knowledge of ships “from stem to stern, and from keelson to cross-trees” (198). However much Douglass can immerse himself in the culture of the merchant seaman, though, the conductor’s response to the ... Read More

  • The Heroic Slave/Frederick Douglass: A Cultural and Critical Edition ed.
           by Robert S. Levine, John Stauffer, John R. McKivigan (review)
    • Abstract: It’s strange to be applauding the first critical edition of Frederick Douglass’s The Heroic Slave, originally published in 1853, in 2016. How is it possible that no one has produced a critical edition, or even a stand-alone edition, of this novella before now' The Heroic Slave is the only work of fiction by the most celebrated and widely read African American writer of the nineteenth century; it is the story of one of the most publicized and influential slave narratives in US history; it offers an extraordinary example of African American literary culture at a time that most people associate only with slave narratives; and it is short enough, at roughly fifty pages, to fit neatly into any syllabus, while ...

  • The Ragged Road to Abolition: Slavery and Freedom in New Jersey,
           1775–1865 by James J. Gigantino II (review)
    • Abstract: The old periodization of slavery and abolition in the North is breaking down. So too, if historian James J. Gigantino II has his way, is the old historical geography of slavery. Scholars used to consign slavery’s end north of the Mason-Dixon Line to the Revolutionary era and only pick up the story of antislavery activism years later, in the three decades preceding the Civil War. Gigantino’s extensively researched study adds compelling evidence to the notion that neither African American experience nor the mechanics of abolition fell into neatly divided eras. Too much painful history and too many complicated developments occurred between the end of the Revolutionary War and the beginning of the Civil War to ... Read More

  • Lenape Country: Delaware Valley Society before William Penn by Jean R.
           Soderlund (review)
    • Abstract: On the cover of Jean R. Soderlund’s book, there is a map. It was created in 1670 by Augustine Herrman, a merchant, gazing north from his manor in Maryland.1 Black rivers, creeks, and tributaries bloom across the space, like spider veins. Indian towns are tucked in along riverbanks. Herrman labeled this space “NEW JARSY,” but he acknowledged, too, that “at present,” it was “Inhabited Only or most By Indians.” This was the homeland of the Lenape people. They lived in a web of unfortified towns, across territory in what is now central and southern New Jersey, eastern Pennsylvania, and part of Delaware. At the heart of their country was the Lenapewihittuck, the river that later became known as the ... Read More

  • George Whitefield: Life, Context, and Legacy ed. by George Hammond, David
           Ceri Jones (review)
    • Abstract: George Whitefield! In the eighteenth century, his name deserved an exclamation point. Innovator, celebrity, phenomenon, he drew tens of thousands of people to his open-air preaching to hear the old message of the new birth in a new way. “How was his tongue like the pen of a ready writer' touching as with a coal from the altar! With what a flow of words, what a ready profusion of language, did he speak to us upon the great concern of our souls,” wrote the Rev. Josiah Smith, a South Carolina Congregationalist. The awe, the silence, the attention, which sat upon the face of so great an audience, was an argument, how he could reign over all their powers. Many thought, He spoke as never man spoke, before ...

  • Literature Incorporated: The Cultural Unconscious of the Business
           Corporation, 1650–1850 by John O’Brien (review)
    • Abstract: In Literature Incorporated, John O’Brien surveys the rise of the corporation in Britain and early America in the period between 1650 and 1850 from an unfamiliar angle. Most historical writing on the corporation in this period treats it as a legal entity. O’Brien shifts our attention to the realm of cultural artifacts. His goal—as he observes in a gloss of John Locke’s Essay concerning Human Understanding (1689), whose writings he explores in his first substantive chapter—is to translate the “unconscious political-economic ideology” of the age into the realm of the conscious “‘idea’” so as to “render it available for critique” (11). Though O’Brien is not unmindful of cultural artifacts that originated in ... Read More

  • Revolutionary Religion, with Five Sermons, 1774–1777, 2nd ed. ed. by
           David R. Williams (review)
    • Abstract: A constant within the ever-evolving field of American religious history is the provocative result of mixing religion with politics. This mixture is perhaps most volatile where the history of religion and the politics of the country’s founding era are concerned. Since the early nineteenth century, Americans have demonstrated a keen interest in depicting the country’s founding as either deeply religious or purely secular. In this persistent culture war, David R. Williams has presented readers with a new edition of a book he first published in 1984: Revolutionary Religion, with Five Sermons, 1774–1777. As its title clearly indicates, Revolutionary Religion consists of five sermons preached by ... Read More

  • Plantation Church: How African American Religion Was Born in Caribbean
           Slavery by Noel Leo Erskine (review)
    • Abstract: Plantation Church is organized in six chapters: “Migration, Displacement, Resistance,” “The Memory of Africa,” “Black Church Experience South of the Border,” “The Plantation Church,” “The Making of the Black World,” and “Toward a Creolized Ecclesiology.” Throughout these chapters, Noel Leo Erskine endeavors to explore the question of the structural, psychological, and cultural factors presiding over the birth, theological orientation, and roles of the black church during slavery. According to the author, and as suggested by the subtitle, a full comprehension of this institution requires that one probe into the Caribbean context, for it is there that the black church began, for two primary reasons. First ... Read More

  • Paper Sovereigns: Anglo-Native Treaties and the Law of Nations,
           1604–1664 by Jeffrey Glover (review)
    • Abstract: Treaties have always been a favorite topic of scholars of Indian-colonial relations, and it is no wonder why. Whereas so many aspects of Indian-colonial exchange have gone undocumented or underdocumented, treaty making has produced an enormous paper trail, rivaled perhaps only by missionary work and trade. Yet the bulk of this scholarship has focused on the conduct of formal diplomacy and the Indian land cessions produced by it, particularly during the late eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. This includes the most recent statement on the subject by Colin Calloway, the aptly titled Pen and Ink Witchcraft (2013). Jeffrey Glover’s first book, Paper Sovereigns, makes some important contributions to this ... Read More

  • Liberty Power: Antislavery Third Parties and the Transformation of
           American Politics by Corey M. Brooks (review)
    • Abstract: Corey M. Brooks aims to elevate the standing of antislavery third parties in the historical analysis of American politics between 1830 and 1860. He contends that vote counts and voting percentages in national elections during those three decades minimize the real impact of third-party abolitionism. In national balloting for president, Liberty Party candidates received only .3 percent in 1840, 2.3 percent in 1844, and .1 percent in 1848. The Free Soil Party got 10.1 percent of the popular vote in 1848 and 4.9 percent in 1852, when the Democrat, Franklin Pierce, won in a landslide. Brooks argues that antislavery politicians who aimed to break the hold of the “Slave Power” (a term that emerged in 1839) over the ... Read More

  • Reading Children: Literacy, Property, and the Dilemmas of Childhood in
           Nineteenth-Century America by Patricia Crain (review)
    • Abstract: If you have read The History of Little Goody Two Shoes, a children’s book anonymously published by John Newbery in 1765 and popular in the early United States, it is unlikely that you paused to count exactly how many wooden letters the dispossessed orphan-turned-pedagogue carries in her bag for the majority of the narrative. Patricia Crain knows: she is carrying “some 420 pieces of wood,” which means that the seemingly prosaic heroine (who gave us the schoolyard slur for sickening straitlacedness) enters, in Crain’s beautifully turned phrase, “the realm of the mythic, like the blues singer who says a matchbox holds his clothes” (28). Crain also knows why such books matter. Thus, Reading Children ... Read More

  • The Cherokee Diaspora: An Indigenous History of Migration, Resettlement,
           and Identity by Gregory D. Smithers (review)
    • Abstract: Gregory Smithers’s Cherokee Diaspora tells a history of Cherokee peoples from the mid-eighteenth century up to World War II. Surveying that roughly two-hundred-year span, it attends to the emergence, persistence, and connection of twinned homelands (the “ancestral” North American Southeast and the “political” Cherokee Nation in Oklahoma), as well as extrahomeland regions where Cherokees in significant numbers have lived or sought to live, including Texas, California, and Australia (20). The shifting interrelationship of these long-standing and multisited resettlements undergirds what Smithers terms the Cherokee diaspora. “In diaspora,” he explains, “the Cherokee people became settlers and were forced to ...
