The Making of Racial Sentiment: Slavery and the Birth of The Frontier Romance

The Making of Racial Sentiment:
Slavery and the Birth of The Frontier Romance By Ezra Tawil

Publisher: Cambridge University Press 2006 | 256 Pages |
ISBN: 0521865395 | PDF | 1 MB

The frontier romance, an enormously popular genre of American fiction born in the 1820s, helped redefine 'race' for an emerging national culture. Ezra Tawil argues that the novel of white-Indian conflict provided authors and readers with an apt analogy for the problem of slavery. By uncovering the sentimental aspects of the frontier romance, Tawil redraws the lines of influence between the 'Indian novel' of the 1820s and the sentimental novel of slavery, demonstrating how Harriet Beecher Stowe's Uncle Tom's Cabin ought to be reconsidered in this light. This study reveals how American literature of the 1820s helped form modern ideas about racial differences.
