Summary
"Writing and Postcolonialism in the Early Republic is the first book-length analysis of early American literature through the lens of postcolonial theory. Although the United States represented a colonizing presence that displaced indigenous peoples and exported imperial culture, American colonists also found themselves exiled, often exploited and abused by the distant metropolitan center. In this innovative book, Edward Watts demonstrates how American post-Revolutionary literature exhibits characteristics of a post-colonial society." "Writing and Postcolonialism in the Early Republic offers an original theoretical paradigm for discussing the early republic as a postcolonial site. This book combines the fields of early American studies and postcolonial theory to shed new light on the methodologies and materials of each. It will be an essential tool for scholars of both disciplines."--BOOK JACKET
