Colonial American Literature

This seminar closely examines texts composed by colonial American women and men who - through their writings - tried to understand their contemporaries and themselves during two periods of cultural change: the Puritan 17th century and the revolutionary 18th century. Included are works by such authors as Anne Bradstreet, Mary Rowlandson, Sarah Kemble Knight, Phillis Wheatley, Benjamin Franklin, Thomas Jefferson, and Hector St. John de Crevecoeur.
