American romanticism and the marketplace by Michael T Gilmore( )

27 editions published between 1985 and 2010 in English and Japanese and held by 1,879 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

""This book can take its place on the shelf beside Henry Nash Smith's Virgin Land and Leo Marx's The Machine in the Garden.""--Choice ""[Gilmore] demonstrates the profound, sustained, engagement with society embodied in the works of Emerson, Hawthorne, Thoreau and Melville. In effect, he relocates the American Renaissance where it properly belongs, at the centre of a broad social, economic, and ideological movement from the Jacksonian era to the Civil War.

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

14 editions published between 2010 and 2014 in English and held by 1,579 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Proposing a radical new interpretation of nineteenth-century American literature, The war on Words examines struggles over permissible and impermissible utterance in works ranging from Thoreau's "Civil Disobedience" to Henry James's The Bostonians. Gilmore combines historical knowledge with groundbreaking readings of some of the classic texts of the American past, as when he places Lincoln's Cooper Union address in the same constellation as Margaret Fuller's feminism and Thomas Dixon's defense of lynching. Arguing that slavery and race exerted coercive pressure on freedom of expression, Gilmore offers here a transformative study that alters our understanding of nineteenth-century literary culture and its fraught engagement with the right to speak. --Book Jacket
Surface and depth : the quest for legibility in American culture by Michael T Gilmore( )

23 editions published between 2002 and 2007 in English and held by 1,300 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
