America and the sea : a literary history( Book )

8 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 541 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The book's fourteen chapters consider the written presence of the Atlantic, the Pacific, and the Gulf of Mexico, and also move inland to address the literature of the Great Lakes. They reveal the importance of the sea in works by women, African Americans, and Native Americans - which is one aspect of the book's special considerations not only of race and gender but also of genre, religion, class, audience, aesthetics, tradition, and innovation. Written in a style accessible to a broad, diversely educated audience, and featuring extensive bibliographies essential to further reading and research, America and the Sea is a unique work on an abiding presence in our cultural consciousness. In addition, its collaborative scholarship seeks to provide wider historical and cultural frameworks for understanding texts, enlarging traditional canons, and making strong use of cross-disciplinary study

Moby Dick by Herman Melville( Book )

6 editions published between 2006 and 2007 in English and held by 459 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Herman Melville's Moby-Dick is considered by many readers to be the Great American Novel. But most don't know that since its appearance in 1851, it has been revised in substantial ways that alter its original meaning. Melville's masterpiece is described as a "fluid text": it exists in multiple versions, each revealing shifting intentions. The new Longman Critical Edition offers unprecedented access to the revisions that Melville made, the further changes and censoring imposed by his British editors, and controversial alterations made by modern scholars." "Bryant and Springer's introduction engages readers in the personal, social, and cultural context of Melville's novel, his life, and his writing process. To showcase the novel's "fluid text" features, a special typeface indicates hundreds of passages that were later revised, edited, and censored. On-page "Revision Narratives" explain the stories behind the major changes, and Explanatory Notes at the back of the book discuss literary allusions, as well as contemporary social, political, philosophical, and cultural references - some never before explained in any edition." "Concise footnotes and a modern Glossary bring obscure language and nautical terms to life, and diverse illustrations - including a new map of the Pequod's voyage, historical ship diagrams, relevant film stills, and comic-book art - depict whaling life and reveal how Melville's story is still being revised."--Jacket
