Editorial Reviews

Booknews
A collection of six essays (three previously unpublished) forming a meditation on the theory of a specifically "American" literature. Riddel explores "cardinal" oppositions--creation versus representation, poetry versus criticism, geography versus "ego- graphy"--through an examination of classic 19th century American literature including the work of Emerson, Poe, Hawthorne, Melville, and others.
