The historicism of Charles Brockden Brown radical history and the early republic by Mark Kamrath ( )
7 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 918 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
A new perspective on the cultural politics of Charles Brockden Brown The novels of Charles Brockden Brown, the most accomplished literary figure in early America, redefined the gothic genre and helped shape some of America?s greatest writers, including Herman Melville, Edgar Allan Poe, and Nathaniel Hawthorne. However, little has been said about the latter years of Brown?s career. While his early novels are celebrated for their innovative and experimental style, Brown?s later historical narratives are often dismissed as uninteresting, and Brown himself has been accused of having become?a stodgy conservative.? Through a re-examination of these neglected historical writings, Mark L. Kamrath takes a fresh look at Brown?s later career and his role in the cultural politics of the early national period. This interdisciplinary study uses transatlantic historical contexts and recent narrative discourse to unveil Brown?s philosophic inquires into the filiopietistic tradition of historiography and increasingly imperialistic notion of American exceptionalism. It recovers a forgotten debate?and radical position?about the nature of historical truth and representation and opens up for contemporary discussion what it means to write about the past

"Revising Charles Brockden Brown explores the writer as a key figure for understanding the cultural politics of this crucial era of U.S. and Atlantic history. Using contemporary critical models drawn from history, interdisciplinary cultural studies, postcolonial studies, gender and queer theory, and other areas, the essays in this collection bring Brown studies into the twenty-first century, synthesizing and extending the implications of the upsurge in Brown scholarship that has occurred over the last twenty years." "These essays explore Brown in his own right and as a window onto the social dynamics of the early republic, as a participant in and commentator on the tumultuous conflicts and transformations of this postrevolutionary moment."--BOOK JACKET
