Summary
"Rewriting Early America argues the need for a subtler understanding of how post-1945 literary figures represent America's prenational past. Rather than focusing only on how literary representations of the national origins advance political critiques, this book also recognizes the recuperative visions founds in many recent novels and poems"--
