The American Revolution and the Civil War bracket roughly eight decades of formative change in a republic created in 1776 by a gesture that was both rhetorical and performative. The subsequent construction of U.S. national identity influenced virtually all art forms, especially prose fiction, until internal conflict disrupted the project of nation-building. This volume reassesses, in an authoritative way, the principal forms and features of the emerging American novel. It will include chapters on: the beginnings of the novel in the US; the novel and nation-building; the publishing industry; leading novelists of Antebellum America; eminent early American novels; cultural influences on the novel; and subgenres within the novel form during this period. This book is the first of the three proposed US volumes that will make up Oxford's ambitious new eleven-volume literary resource, The Oxford History of the Novel in English (OHONE), a venture being commissioned and administered on both sides of the Atlantic

MEDIA REVIEWS

..".readers should feel assured that this book represents an exceptionally and uniformly high level of scholarship. It provides a beautiful compendium of much of the best work that has come out of Americanist literary scholarship in the past two decades and, as such, should find a home on the shelf of every scholar of American literature and of the novel as a genre." --Thomas Allen, Eighteenth-Century Fiction
