In this course students survey significant texts in the American literary and cultural tradition from the Colonial period through the Civil War. This course is historical in its conception and, therefore, emphasizes an historical approach to the material. This approach - designed to cultivate historically-committed interpretation - regards writers as producers of time and place-specific cultural work and treats their texts as enactments of that work.
