Captain John Smith by Everett H Emerson( Book )

21 editions published between 1971 and 1999 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,512 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Captain John Smith (1580-1631), famed for saving the young Virginia colony and for his lucky rescue by Pocahontas, was the quintessential Great Elizabethan Adventurer. He traveled throughout the world, including the entire eastern coast of America, writing eloquently and at length about his experiences. With publication of A True Relation of such occurrences and accidents of noate as hath hapned in virginia since the first planting of that Collony (1608), Smith became author of the first American book in English, and his canon includes the well-known Generall Historie of Virginia, New England, and the Summer Isles, as well as the autobiographical ramble, Advertisements. Yet few scholars have approached the Captain's many books and pamphlets as literary achievements. In this welcome revision of his successful 1971 study, Everett Emerson does this expertly, showing Smith's canon to be thick with influences, embedded in a well-formed tradition and stylishly self-reflexive. Modernizing Smith's language for contemporary readers, Emerson illuminates his radically secular vision of the meaning of America (expressed at a time when most believed colonization was the work of God); his promotion of Virginia's cause; the objective descriptions of the native peoples and English colonists alike; his unique attempt to define a distinctively American identity; and especially his self-portrait as an individualist, soldier, and dreamer. Analyzing each of Smith's works, Emerson reveals the rich connections among the author's life, principles, and letters, and shows us how, more than any of his colleagues - from Sir Walter Raleigh to Richard Hakluyt - Smith successfully advanced the colonization and character of the "New" World. Occasioned by the 1986 publication of all Smith's texts in their authoritative editions, this updated study is especially timely
Mark Twain : a literary life by Everett H Emerson( Book )

12 editions published between 1999 and 2000 in English and held by 1,406 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In Mark Twain, a Literary Life, Everett Emerson, author of The Authentic Mark Twain, revisits one of America's greatest and most popular writers. Building upon that earlier work, he explores the relationship between the life of the writer and his writings. The assumption throughout is that to see Mark Twain's writings in focus, one must give proper attention to their biographical context." "In reporting the author's life, Emerson has endeavored to permit Mark Twain to tell his own story as much as possible, through the use of letters and autobiographical writings, some previously unpublished. These glimpses into the life of the writer will be of interest to all who have an abiding affection for Samuel Clemens and his extraordinary legacy."--Jacket
