Authorship and audience : literary performance in the American Renaissance by Stephen Railton ( Book )
10 editions published between 1991 and 2014 in English and held by 624 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Stephen Railton's study of the American Renaissance proposes a fresh way of conceiving the writer as a performing artist and the text as an enactment of the drama of its own performance. Railton focuses on how major prose works of the period are preoccupied with their readers--how they seek to negotiate the conflicted space between the authors, who brought to the act of publication their own anxieties of ambition and identity, and the contemporary American reading public, which, as a growing mass audience in a democracy, had acquired an unprecedented authority over the terms of literary per
The last of the Mohicans by James Fenimore Cooper ( Book )
6 editions published between 1990 and 2004 in English and held by 522 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The Last of the Mohicans is the second andmost popular of James Fenimore Cooper's five Leatherstocking Tales. Set in 1757 during the fierce French and Indian wars, Cooper's classic novel of adventure follows an adroit scout and his companion as they weave through the lush and spectacular wilderness of upstate New York, fighting to save the beautiful daughters of a fort commander from a treacherous Huron renegade. With its death-defying chases and teeth-clenching suspenes, this historical romance established many archetypes of American frontier fiction: the brave, skillful loner (Hawkeye), who rejects "white" civilization while aiding the settlers who spread it; the "noble savage" (Chingachgook) who becomes his deepest friend: a plot involving chases, epic battles and lovely heroines (Cora and Alice Munro) menaced by an Indian renegade (Magua), and the central role played by the most important "character" of all, the magnificent but dangerous wilderness

Adventures of Huckleberry Finn by Mark Twain ( Book )
1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 96 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"From its first appearance onward, Adventures of Huckleberry Finn has been both praised and condemned, enshrined as one of the world's great novels and banned from libraries and classrooms. This new edition is designed to enable modern readers to explore the sources of its greatness, and also to take a fresh, open-minded look at the source of the current controversy about its place in the canon: its representation of race and slavery. Based on the first American edition of 1885, this Broadview Edition includes all 174 original illustrations by E.W. Kemble. Appendices include contemporary reviews, passages deleted from the original manuscript, advertisements for the book, and a range of materials, from newspaper articles to minstrel show scripts to contemporary fiction, showing how race and slavery were depicted in the larger culture at the time."--Publisher's website
