The Wadsworth Themes American Literature Series, 1800-1865 Theme 7 Manifest Destiny and the Quest for the West, 1st Edition
AUTHORS: Parini/Samuels - ©2009
Shirley Samuels—a Professor of English and American Studies who also chairs the History of Art and Visual Studies Department at Cornell—has established herself as a major voice in the field of nineteenth-century American literature and culture. In the second sequence of booklets, Samuels looks at the early days of the American republic, a period stretching from 1800-1865, taking us through the Civil War. This was a period of huge expansion as well as consolidation. The question of identity arose on different fronts, and we see the beginnings of the women's movement in the nineteenth century. Racial questions came into focus during this era, too, and the groundwork for the Civil War is unhappily laid. A range of inspiring and heart-rending texts from a time of bloodshed, hatred, and immense idealism concludes the thematic sequence.
