The war on words : slavery, race, and free speech in American literature by Michael T Gilmore( Book )

13 editions published between 2010 and 2014 in English and Undetermined and held by 489 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The War on Words is a brave and brilliant book that explores the fact of censorship, particularly as it operated in matters of slavery and race, in nineteenth-century American literature and politics. While positioning the Civil War as the moment when 'the nature of utterance' shifted from the comic to the tragic, from prophecy to indirection, from abolitionists to the Klan, Gilmore nevertheless attends to the consistency, across the century, with which words are championed, attacked, feared, and erased. With remarkable range and acuity, Gilmore convincingly demonstrates that what could not be said is as significant an impetus for the production and understanding of American literature as what could."ùCindy Weinstein, California Institute Of Technology
Surface and depth : the quest for legibility in American culture by Michael T Gilmore( Book )

20 editions published between 2002 and 2006 in English and held by 488 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Surface and Depth: The Quest for Legibility in American Culture is a fresh attempt to revitalize an interpretive overview. Focusing on the distinctly American zeal for knowing or making legible, it seeks to recuperate a central tradition while simultaneously recognizing how much that tradition has occluded." "Combining historical reconceptualization with readings of many of the classics of American literature, Michael Gilmore traces - from the time of the first white settlement and subsequent founding of the United States - the presence of a hitherto unappreciated inheritance. American culture has from the start been consumed with the imperatives of knowledge and accessibility, an insatiable appetite to explore the surface and depths and give them tangible form."--Jacket

6 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 426 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this innovative attempt to place the movies and theater in the larger context of American and English cultural differences, Michael Gilmore demonstrates that the most interesting way to understand the distinctions between the two cultures is by looking closely at each country's favorite art form. Differences in the Dark is a fresh, wide-ranging look at the meaning of America's fascination with movies and movie stars, and the way the soul of Britain is reflected in its tenacious love affair with the stage
