Latest Early American Literature (Hardcover) (R. C. De Prospo)
about this item
The Latest Early American Literature both negatively critiques how the latest scholarly receptions of early American literature differ insignificantly from the earliest ones and positively proposes how a transnationalist concession—that America’s neocolonial culture lags behind that of Europe—might advance postmodern theorizing. Closer to earth, it is mindful that saving early American texts requires teaching them to nonspecialist, never-to-become-specialist undergraduates, and to facilitate this it concludes with what will likely seem its most radical intervention: redefining Edgar Allan Poe as an early American writer.
