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

7 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 523 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

1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

[This book] paints a ... portrait of the American scene, from New England seafaring life to Southern plantation culture. More popular abroad than at home, the work provided Europeans with their chief impression of American landscapes, peoples, institutions, values, and problems. [The book] explores some of the unpleasant truths about the nation's birth pangs. These essays described the hardships of frontier life, the threat of Indian raids, and the bloody unrest between fanatical patriots and back-country loyalists.-Back cover

In my father's study by Benjamin S Orlove( Book )

1 edition published in 1995 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 1921 Solomon Orlovski, a Russian Jew born in 1904, emigrated to America and transformed himself into Robert Orlove, a pattern maker in two senses of the term: during the day, he worked in the fur trade in New York and Chicago, making patterns for toys and hats; in his private life he became a self-taught artist who created prints, sketches, and collages in his study. More than sixty years later his son Ben--an anthropologist educated at Harvard and Berkeley--walked through the doorway of the deceased Robert's study and began to explore more than a half century of his father's experiences, thoughts, and emotions as well as his own very different life. His wry, sensitive combination of biography, memoir, and autobiography taps a remarkably rich vein of individual and collective experience in our diverse society. Ben Orlove's dual narrative constitutes a family history of notable breadth and immediacy. By turns passionate and cool, dramatic and analytic, he excavates his father Robert's lifetime accumulation of diaries, letters, clippings, photographs, and artworks to create a convincing, deeply satisfying portrait that link both father and son
Letters from Togo by Susan Louise Blake( Book )

1 edition published in 1991 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Since Lomé is both an overgrown village and a cosmopolitan city, Blake's exhilarating, often humorous experiences range from buying a car to attending a traditional tom-tom funeral, from visiting people who hunt with bows and arrows to enduring faculty meetings, from negotiating the politics of buying produce to lecturing on Afro-American literature at the English Club. Together, her enlivening letters trace the pattern of adjusting to a foreign environment and probe the connections between Africa and this curious, energetic American. Not "out of Africa" but within it, they take advantage of time and perspective to penetrate the universal experience of being a stranger in a strange land

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

1 edition published in 1989 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library 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
