The central concern of James Tuttleton's new collection of literary essays is the work of black writers and the representation of the black experience in America. Mr. Tuttleton approaches the subject with caution, but with his usual clear-eyed judgment, seeking to restore objective criticism to its proper role in the treatment of "minority" writings

Vital signs : essays on American literature and criticism by James W Tuttleton( Book )

9 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 438 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

James Tuttleton's literary writings in such magazines as the New Criterion, the American Scholar, and the Yale Review have earned him a reputation as one of our most trenchant critics. Here he collects nineteen essays derived from his long engagement with the masterworks of the American imagination. Discussions of Hawthorne and Emerson, Howells and James, Fuller and Chopin, and Fitzgerald and Anderson, among others, are counterpointed with an analysis of the effect of contemporary critical theory on the American canon. Mr. Tuttleton scrutinizers a century and a half of great American writing from the viewpoint of literature as an art rather than as a datum of "cultural studies." He is severe with those styles of criticism that in his view drain literature of its moral and social significance, or that manipulate literature to serve an ideological agenda

A fine silver thread : essays on American writing and criticism by James W Tuttleton( Book )

Mr. Tuttleton's new collection of fifteen essays focuses on what Henry James called "the imaginative faculty under cultivation," the quality that makes for important literature. The subjects here range from Washington Irving to Louis Auchincloss, with stops along the way for considerations of Cooper, Poe, Howells, James, Henry Adams, Edith Wharton, Scott Fitzgerald, Sinclair Lewis, and Conrad Aiken. Mr. Tuttleton assesses the influence and accomplishments of literary radicalism in the twenties and investigates the treatment of women in the American novel between the two world wars

Representations of the Portuguese in American literature by Reinaldo Francisco Silva( )

1 edition published in 1998 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Based on Bhabha's theories of postcolonial relations between minority and majority cultures, this study focuses on American writings with Portuguese fictional characters, all of which were written between the middle of the nineteenth century and the middle of the twentieth century. It analyzes the racial, ethnic, religious, economic, and cultural assumptions and biases that American writers of a predominantly Anglo-Saxon background have expressed towards the Portuguese. Both canonical and non-canonical American voices have taken a prejudicial look at the Portuguese, and this is reflected in the texts produced in or about the geographical locations where this ethnic minority has traditionally settled in the United States: New England, California, and Hawaii. In its exploration of the racially-charged snapshots prompted by social Darwinism, this study also questions the validity of the stereotypes pointing to violence, sexual promiscuity, filth, drunkenness, bootlegging, opium trafficking, greed, and stupidity often attributed to the Portuguese by American writers of Anglo-Saxon descent. Such corrosive misrepresentations, however, are rejected by an emerging group of Portuguese-American voices whose writings display a concern for matters such as what it means to belong to a minority culture within the context of a dominant one. These Portuguese-American writers offer an unbiased and reliable discussion of the location of the Portuguese within American culture, and they, not the Anglo writers, are likelier effectively to establish the bridge between Portuguese and American culture. In addition, this study analyzes the impact of Portuguese immigration on America while providing an understanding of how Portuguese immigrants were received and how Portuguese culture was transmitted to and transformed in America
"Apparitions and night-fears": Psychosexual tension in "The Ghostly Tales of Henry James." by Leonora M Ballinger( )

1 edition published in 1996 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

James wrote most of these ghost stories between 1891 and 1908, a time of great social change in both England and America. Women's groups began to agitate for political and economic benefits, and radical men's groups began to question established cultural authority and patriarchal class structures. Common notions about gender and sexuality were also being challenged, and the words "feminism" and "homosexuality" came into general use
