About

Boston University offers the American Literature - Beginnings to 1855 programme.

Overview

Key facts

Boston University's American Literature - Beginnings to 1855 is a survey of American literature from its (contested) beginnings through the mid-nineteenth century. Focus on fiction, poetry, and autobiography from authors such as Rowlandson, Wheatley, Melville, Douglass, Thoreau, Jacobs, Dickinson, and Whitman. Also, brief encounters with other genres such as sermons, essays, and exploration narratives. Among our lines of inquiry are these: how do political and philosophical questions shape literary forms and styles (and vice-versa)? How do authors write themselves into (and out of) literary traditions, particularly in matters of influence and culture? How do the roots (and routes) of early American literature continue today?
