The school of Hawthorne by Richard H Brodhead( )

27 editions published between 1986 and 1990 in English and held by 2,262 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

InThe School of Hawthorne, Brodhead uses Hawthorne as a prime example of how literary traditions are made, not born. Under Brodhead's scrutiny, the Hawthorne tradition opens out onto a wide array of subjects, many of which have received little previous attention. He offers a detailed account of Hawthorne's life in American letters, showing how authors as varied as Melville, Howells, James, and Faulkner have learned from Hawthorne's model while all the while changing the terms in which he has been read. As he traces Hawthorne's continued life among his heirs, Brodhead also reflects on the ways in which writers receive and resist official tradition, how their work is conditioned by the institutionalized pasts that surround them, and how they go about creating new traditions to counter existing ones. An important contribution to literary history,The School of Hawthornealso establishes new ways in which literary history itself can be understood

Cultures of letters : scenes of reading and writing in nineteenth-century America by Richard H Brodhead( Book )

13 editions published between 1993 and 1994 in English and held by 816 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Cultures of Letters illuminates the changing place made for literature in American cultural life. Offering critics and general readers alike a fresh view of America's literary past, this book shows that writing is never simply self-generated; rather, it always reflects the literary arrangements and understandings of particular social settings. Richard H. Brodhead uses a great variety of historical sources, many of them considered here for the first time, to reconstruct the institutionalized literary worlds that coexisted in nineteenth-century America: the middle-class domestic culture of letters, the culture of mass-produced cheap reading, the militantly hierarchical high culture of the post-Civil War decades, and the literary culture of post-emancipation black education. Moving across a range of writers familiar and unfamiliar, and relating groups of writers often considered in artificial isolation, Brodhead describes how these socially structured worlds of writing shaped the terms of literary practice for the authors who inhabited them. Readers will find fresh descriptions of the works and the working conditions of writers like Stowe, Hawthorne, Fanny Fern, Louisa May Alcott, Sarah Orne Jewett, and Charles Chesnutt, among many others. Through its examples, Cultures of Letters also suggests new, historically more informed ways to approach a number of theoretical questions: How do the terms of literature's public consumption affect the terms of its private conception? By what processes are authors admitted to or excluded from literary careers? Are writers all literary in the same way? How do social factors like race or gender affect not only literary works but the place of an author in culture? Written in vigorous, accessible prose and full of unexpected turns of thought, Cultures of Letters makes a major contribution to American literary and cultural studies and to the historical study of literary forms

Speaking of Duke : leading the 21st-century university by Richard H Brodhead( )

7 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 139 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Over the course of his thirteen years as president of Duke University, Richard H. Brodhead spoke at numerous university ceremonies, community forums, and faculty meetings, and even appeared on The Colbert Report. Speaking of Duke collects dozens of these speeches, in which Brodhead speaks both to the special character and history of Duke University and to the general state of higher education. In these essays, Brodhead shows a university thinking its way forward through challenges all institutes of higher education have faced in the twenty-first century, including an expanding global horizon, an economic downturn that has left a diminished sense of opportunity and a shaken faith in the value of liberal arts education, and pressure to think more deeply about issues of equity and inclusion. His audiences range from newly arrived freshmen and new graduates-both facing uncertainty about how to build their future lives-to seasoned faculty members. On other occasions, he makes the case to the general public for the enduring importance of the humanities. What results is a portrait of Duke University in its modern chapter and the social and political climate that it shapes and is shaped by. While these speeches were given on official occasions, they are not impersonal official pronouncements; they are often quite personal and written with grace, humor, and an unwavering belief in the power of education to shape a changing world for the better
