MEDIA REVIEWS
" This book makes an exciting and stimulating argument. Using Foucault's concept of transgression, Bradfield approaches significant texts by Godwin, Brockden Brown, Fenimore Cooper, and Edgar Allan Poe to argue against the prevalent belief that classic American fiction ought to be considered a special case separate from the class tensions and revolutionary tropes of the nineteenth-century European novel. This is an important, highly significant volume." --Geoffrey Green

""Dreaming Revolution" is a cogent and compelling discussion of transgression in major American romances and their British progenitors... Bradfield provides convincing readings that demonstrate precisely how transgression as a romantic ideal is recuperated as an aspect of bourgeois ideology... what lends strength and originality to Bradfield's book are the clarity and care with which he conducts his readings of individual works... this is a strong contribution to the ongoing discussion of ideology and American literature." -Patrick O'Donnell
