Margaretta Matilda Odell's 1834 Memoir and Poems of Phillis Wheatley is the only substantive early source on Wheatley's life. Phillis Wheatley (ca. 1753-1784) is considered the first African American poet to write for a transatlantic audience, and her Poems on Various Subjects, Religious and Moral (1773) kindled debates about race. 1.

Multiculturalism and the American Self
63,90 CHF *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

The articles of this volume, which derive from two symposia held under the auspices of the Erasmus cooperation among seven European universities, address issues of the inter- and intracultural relations of different ethnic groups in America from the colonial period to the present time. In addition to the intercultural contacts between European settlers and immigrants on the one hand and minority groups on the other hand, emphasis is also given to the intercultural relations within white American literature. The common thread in all of these multicultural productions is the formation of an American self. Treatments of encounters between white settlers and Native Americans in the colonial period are set next to analyses of the minority works ranging from the poetry of Phillis Wheatley in the early republic, to questions of gender in slave narratives, to the fictions of Nella Larsen, Alice Walker, Toni Morrison, Gerald Vizenor, and Chicana writers. The implicit, often unintentional, stirrings of multiculturalism are the subject of articles on Henry Adams, Henry James, Thomas Wolfe, and Paul Green. Finally, the volume includes discussions of multicultural stereotypes, which determine the construction of American selfhood, in such motion pictures as Pocahontas, Forrest Gump, and Malcolm X.

A Mixed Race
65,90 CHF *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

This collection of new essays enters one of the most topical and energetic debates of our time--the subject of ethnicity. The recent vigorous debates being waged over questions raised by the phenomenon of multiculturalism in America highlight the fact that American culture has arisen out of an unusually rich and interactive ethnic mix. The essays in A Mixed Race suggest that American society was inescapably multicultural from its very beginnings and that this representation of cultural differences fundamentally defined American culture. While recent scholarship has looked extensively at the ethnic formation of modern American culture, this study focuses on the eighteenth century and colonial American values that have been previously overlooked in the debate, arguing that a culture shaped by responses to ethnic and racial difference is not merely a modern circumstance but one at the base of American history. Written by a group of first-class contributors, the essays in this collection discuss the representation of cultural differences between European immigrants and Native Americans, the circumstances of the first African-American autobiographical narratives, rhetorical negotiations among different European-American cultural groups, ethnic representation in the genre literature of jest books and execution narratives, and the ethnic conceptions of Michel de Crevecoeur, Phillis Wheatley, and Thomas Jefferson. A Mixed Race offers agile and original yet scholarly readings of ethnicity and ethnic formation from some of our best critics of early American culture. Moving from questions of race and ethnicity to varieties of ethnic representation, and finally to individual confrontations, this volume sheds light on the confrontations of ethnically diverse peoples, and launches a timely, full-scale investigation of the construction of American culture.
