Autobiographical occasions and original acts : versions of American identity from Henry Adams to Nate Shaw by Albert E Stone( Book )

14 editions published in 1982 in English and held by 800 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Stone rescues autobiography from the thickets of recent critical theory, in which the life portrayed has often seemed less important than the inventive literary techniques. He argues that the techniques are important because knowledge of the life is important to our culture. Restricting himself primarily to 16 writers of the 20th century, Stone juxtaposes two or three figures in given chapters, such as "Becoming a Woman in Male America: Margaret Mead and Anais Nin" and "Two Recreate One: The Act of Collaboration in Recent Black Autobiography -- Ossie Guffy, Nate Shaw, Malcolm X." Other writers considered are W.E.B. DuBois, Henry Adams, Black Elk, Thomas Merton, Louis Sullivan, Richard Wright, Norman Mailer, Frank Conroy, and Lillian Hellman

The return of Nat Turner : history, literature, and cultural politics in sixties America by Albert E Stone( Book )

9 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 530 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Nat Turner is a powerful symbol in the cultural memory of America. Prophet, rebel, and leader of the bloodiest slave insurrection in American history, Turner has fascinated and influenced historians and fiction writers alike. In The Return of Nat Turner, primarily a cultural study of sixties America, Albert E. Stone presents a comprehensive history of the various representations of the violent or rebellious slave in American culture and examines the Nat Turner rebellion as both historical fact and cultural narrative. Beginning with Thomas R. Gray's 1831 pamphlet The Confessions of Nat Turner (published the same year as the Southampton, Virginia, slave revolt), Stone evaluates representations of Turner by such influential historians as Eugene Genovese, Kenneth Stampp, and John Hope Franklin, and in various works of fiction including Arna Bontemps's Black Thunder (1936), Daniel Panger's Ol' Prophet Nat (1967), and Sherley Anne Williams's Dessa Rose (1986). But for Stone, the most crucial revival of Nat Turner's legend is William Styron's 1967 novel The Confessions of Nat Turner, the controversial book largely responsible for Turner's "return" in the sixties. This fictional account of the rebellion became the decade's storm center of debate by focusing on sensitive social and ideological questions about American culture--questions pertaining to slavery and racism, violence and revolution, religion, sex, personal identity, and heroism. The Return of Nat Turner is the first study to situate Styron's novel at the center of a large, complex, and significant web of cultural imaginings. Nat Turner still symbolizes for many Americans the issues and values that divided us in the tumultuous sixties and continue to create dissension in the nineties

A lucky American childhood by Paul Engle( Book )

3 editions published between 1996 and 2007 in English and held by 289 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Born in 1908, Paul Engle grew up the son of a livery stable keeper. As he writes in his dedication to this loving account, "I had a lucky life. Such a way will never be lived here again. It has gone with the wild buffalo skinners and the Indian fighters, with my mother's hands whose tough calluses tore the sheets as she made my bed, with that marvelous rich reek of harnesses and saddle leather, of horse manure and sweat which I happily breathed each day." The anecdotes are rich and captivating. As a boy Engle sold newspapers to factory workers at Quaker Oats and followed his route out to the city limits where coyotes howled in the woods. He helped his father break and train gaited saddle horses in all weathers and seasons. From family holidays with lively activities, uncles, aunts, and memorable foods to his job in the neighborhood drugstore dispensing castor oil, sodas, tonics, and linaments, Engle's absorbing stories capture the characters and atmosphere of American life just after the turn of the century

Tales of an American hobo by Charles Elmer Fox( Book )

2 editions published between 1989 and 2005 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Reefer Charlie" Fox rode the rails from 1928 to 1939; from 1939 to 1965 he hitched rides in automobiles and traveled by foot. From Indiana to British Columbia, from Arkansas to Texas, from Utah to Mexico, he was part of the grand hobo tradition that has all but passed away from American life. He camped in hobo jungles, slept under bridges and in sand houses at railroad yards, ate rattlesnake meat, fresh California grapes, and fish speared by the Indians of the Northwest. He quickly learned both the beauty and the dangers of his chosen way of life. One lesson learned early on was that there are distinct differences among hoboes, tramps, and bums. As the all-time king of hoboes, Jeff Davis, used to say, "Hoboes will work, tramps won't, and bums can't." Tales of an American Hobo is a lasting legacy to conventional society, teaching about a bygone era of American history and a rare breed of humanity who chose to live by the rails and on the road
