Stowe in her own time a biographical chronicle of her life, drawn from recollections, interviews, and memoirs by family, friends, and associates by Susan Belasco ( )
8 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 1,519 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"One of the first celebrity authors, Harriet Beecher Stowe (1811-1896) became famous almost overnight when Uncle Tom's Cabin - which sold more than 300,000 copies in its first year of publication - appeared in 1852. Known by virtually all famous writers in the United States and many in England and regarded by many women writers as a role model because of her influence in the literary marketplace, Stowe herself was the subject of many books, articles, essays, and poems during her lifetime." "This volume brings together for the first time a range of primary materials about Stowe's private and public life written by family members, friends, and fellow writers who knew or were influenced by her before and after Uncle Tom's Cabin catapulted her to fame. Included are periodical articles by Fanny Fern and Charles Dudley Warner; biographical essays by Sarah Josepha Hale and Rose Terry Cooke; letters by Oliver Wendell Holmes, Elizabeth Barrett Browning, and Harriet Jacobs; recollections by Frederick Douglass, Annie Adams Fields, Isabella Beecher Hooker, and Charles Beecher; and poems by Paul Laurence Dunbar and John Greenleaf Whittier. An introduction at the beginning of each essay connects it to its historical and cultural context, explanatory notes provide information about people and places, and the book includes a detailed introduction and a chronology of Stowe's life." "The thirty-eight recollections gathered in Stowe in Her Own Time form a biographical narrative designed to provide several perspectives on the famous author, sometimes in conflict and sometimes in agreement but always perceptive. The figure who emerges from this insightful, analytical collection is far more complex than the image she helped construct in her lifetime."--BOOK JACKET

From the field : Walt Whitman's periodical poetry by Susan Belasco ( )
1 edition published in 2004 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
The article presents information on Walt Whitman's Periodical Poetry. Periodical literature is still a fairly new field in the scholarship of nineteenth-century American literature; until recently, the periodical publications of most writers were not studied very carefully, even writers long-established in the canon. Although most students of Whitman know that he served as the printer and self-publisher of "Leaves of Grass" in 1855, few scholars have studied his career as a journalist and his ongoing relationship with periodical literature. Whitman wrote extensively for the periodical press and worked as an editor at a series of newspapers for many years before he published the first edition of "Leaves of Grass." The poems Whitman published in periodicals from 1859-1860 demonstrate the importance of a close examination of the periodical context for understanding how he negotiated and used magazines and newspapers to construct his image and develop his reputation. In addition, the examples suggest that an archive of the periodical publications introduces a new area of scholarship in Whitman studies, one that has the potential of shedding light on Whitman's publishing practices as well as on the development of the American literary marketplace
