Authority and female authorship in colonial America by William J Scheick( Book )

9 editions published between 1998 and 2015 in English and held by 616 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Colonial American women relied on the same male authorities and traditions as did colonial men. As a result, they encountered special difficulties validating themselves in writing. In Authority and Female Authorship in Colonial America, William Scheick explores logonomic conflict in the works of northeastern colonial women, whose writings often register anxiety not typical of their male contemporaries. This book features the poetry of Mary English and Anne Bradstreet, the letter-journals of Esther Edwards Burr and Sarah Prince, the autobiographical prose of Elizabeth Hanson and Elizabeth Ashbridge, and the political verse of Phillis Wheatley. These works, along with the writings of other colonial women discussed, provide especially noteworthy instances of bifurcations emanating from American colonial women's conflicted confiscation of male authority. Scheick reveals subtle authorial uneasiness and subtextual tensions caused by the attempt to draw legitimacy from male authorities and traditions
The half-blood : a cultural symbol in 19th century American fiction by William J Scheick( Book )

12 editions published between 1979 and 2015 in English and Undetermined and held by 558 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In literature, as in real life the half-blood was a product of the frontier, embodying the conflict between wilderness and civilization that haunted and stirred the American imagination. What was his identity? Was he indeed ""half Indian, half white, and half devil""--Or a bright link between the races from which would emerge a new American p
Design in Puritan American literature by William J Scheick( Book )

8 editions published between 1992 and 2014 in English and Undetermined and held by 512 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Puritan American writers faced a dilemma: they had an obligation to use language as a celebration of divine artistry, but they could not allow their writing to become an iconic graven image of authorial self-idolatry. In this study William Scheick explores one way in which William Bradford, Nathaniel Ward, Anne Bradstreet, Urian Oakes, Edward Taylor, and Jonathan Edwards mediated these conflicting imperatives
