9780140061994: Literary Democracy: The Declaration of Cultural Independence in America

American literature came into its own in the middle of the nineteenth century, when the writings of Edgar Allan Poe, Ralph Waldo Emerson, Nathaniel Hawthorne, Henry David Thoreau, Herman Melville, and Walt Whitman proclaimed the first great flowering of a truly American voice. In this acute and deeply sympathetic examination of their works, Larzer Ziff shows how the creators of our literary tradition, influenced by the social, political, and cultural forces of their era, discovered new ways of perceiving reality and new forms and language with which to describe it.
