Intimacy and Family in Early American Writing, Hardback Book

Intimacy and Family in Early American Writing Hardback

Description

Through the prism of intimacy, Burleigh sheds light on eighteenth and early-nineteenth-century American texts.

This insightful study shows how the trope of the family recurred to produce contradictory images - both intimately familiar and frighteningly alienating - through which Americans responded to upheavals in their cultural landscape.
