America's Indomitable Character Volume III
23,90 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Volume III of America's Indomitable Character concerns itself with: American character identity as represented by ten selected Colonial female authors, among them the early Colonial authors of religious freedom Anne Hutchinson and Anne Dudley Bradstreet, the Colonial adventuress Sarah Kemble Knight, Anne Cotton and her eye-witness accounts of the history of Virginia, Mercy Otis Warren, a contemporary historian of the American Revolutionary Period, Abigail Adams who gave her husband John Adams, the second President, political advice, Judith Sargent Murray, a Colonial feminist, the African-American poet Phillis Wheatley, Hannah Webster Foster, an early advocate of female education, and Susanna Haswell Rowson, America's first professional female novelist. How the Thirteen Original Colonies became states. The American Constitution and American character identity. Attempts to destroy the American Constitution. The Monroe Doctrine and American character identity. The origin and essence of Romanticism and its importance in America. A presentation of Nature, human nature, society, the social contract, and education in selected works of William Hill Brown, Philip Morin Freneau, Charles Brockden Brown, Washington Irving, William Cullen Bryant, David Crockett, James Fenimore Cooper, Edgar Allan Poe. The Bill of Rights. David Crockett's Not Yours to Give Speech. Why Colonists and immigrants came to America and how they became Americans. Individualism and anti-elitism in America's character. America as a place where individuals form and decide of their own destiny, where, as Don Fredrick says, society "means nothing more than a collection of many individual citizens in the same place, where there exist not many rules telling a person what he is permitted to do, but only a few rules telling him what he cannot do. Or, at least, that is what America was when the aforementioned authors wrote about the nation."

The extraordinary writings of Phillis Wheatley, a slave girl turned published poet In 1761, a young girl arrived in Boston on a slave ship, sold to the Wheatley family, and given the name Phillis Wheatley. Struck by Phillis' extraordinary precociousness, the Wheatleys provided her with an education that was unusual for a woman of the time and astonishing for a slave. After studying English and classical literature, geography, the Bible, and Latin, Phillis published her first poem in 1767 at the age of 14, winning much public attention and considerable fame. When Boston publishers who doubted its authenticity rejected an initial collection of her poetry, Wheatley sailed to London in 1773 and found a publisher there for Poems on Various Subjects, Religious and Moral. This volume collects both Wheatley's letters and her poetry: hymns, elegies, translations, philosophical poems, tales, and epyllions--including a poignant plea to the Earl of Dartmouth urging freedom for America and comparing the country's condition to her own. With her contemplative elegies and her use of the poetic imagination to escape an unsatisfactory world, Wheatley anticipated the Romantic Movement of the following century. The appendices to this edition include poems of Wheatley's contemporary African-American poets: Lucy Terry, Jupiter Harmon, and Francis Williams. For more than seventy years, Penguin has been the leading publisher of classic literature in the English-speaking world. With more than 1,700 titles, Penguin Classics represents a global bookshelf of the best works throughout history and across genres and disciplines. Readers trust the series to provide authoritative texts enhanced by introductions and notes by distinguished scholars and contemporary authors, as well as up-to-date translations by award-winning translators.

The Poems of Phillis Wheatley
6,40 CHF *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Born in Africa in 1753, Phillis Wheatley was kidnapped at the age of seven and sold into slavery. At nineteen, she became the first black American poet to publish a book, Poems on Various Subjects: Religious and Moral, on which this volume is based. Wheatley's poetry created a sensation throughout the English-speaking world, and the young poet read her work in aristocratic drawing rooms on both sides of the Atlantic. The London Chronicle went so far as to declare her 'perhaps one of the greatest instances of pure, unassisted genius that the world ever produced.' Wheatley's elegies and odes offer fascinating glimpses into the origins of African-American literary traditions. Most of the poems express the effects of her religious and classical New England education, consisting of elegies for the departed and odes to Christian salvation. This edition of Wheatley's historic works includes letters and a biographical note written by one of the poet's descendants. Includes a selection from the Common Core State Standards Initiative: 'On Being Brought from Africa to America.'
