This course examines a range of texts and genres of “early American literature,” reading authors from the period of the European settlement of the New World through the solidification of a U.S. literary tradition in the mid-19th century. It considers historical, social, and intellectual as well as formal projects of literature, including nation-formation and nationalism, religion and spirituality, race and cross-cultural contact, authority and democracy, utopia and apocalypse. Authors to be considered may include Winthrop, Rowlandson, Franklin, Brockden Brown, Rowson, Irving, Cooper, Poe, Hawthorne, Emerson, and Douglass.
