Philip Freneau The Wild Honey Suckle and To a New England Poet Book Excerpt:

Seminar paper from the year 2004 in the subject American Studies - Literature, grade: 2.0, Johannes Gutenberg University Mainz (Department of English), course: Literature: From Colony to Early Republic, 11 entries in the bibliography, language: English, comment: This paper deals with Philip Freneau, the American Poet of the Revolution. Especially his works "The Wild Honey Suckle" and "To a New England Poet" are regarded. It's their structural and content analysis. Diese Seminararbeit beschaftigt sich mit Philip Freneau, dem amerikanischen Dichter der Revolution. Besonders seine beiden Werke "The Wild Honey Suckle" und "To a New England Poet" werden in dieser Arbeit untersucht. Sie werden einer grundlichen Strukur- und Inhaltsanalyse unterzogen., abstract: Philip Morin Freneau was one America's most important writers. Especially in the Period of the American Revolution he became famous as a teacher, secretary, seaman, master of a merchant ship, clerk at a post office, as a satirist, journalist, poet, editor of "Freeman's Journal" and the "National Gazette" and as a translator for Thomas Jefferson. Two themes that influenced his writings were his interest in nature and the relationship between men and nature as well as the American Revolution. The question which this paper shall discuss is whether his two poems "The Wild Honey Suckle" and "To a New England Poet" are characteristic for his writings and whether they have anything in common. The interest in nature becomes obvious, regarding the first poem. The attitude towards the English and his countrymen is expressed in the second one. In this paper I will at first analyze the two poems. I will summarize their content, as well as take a look at their structural and formal peculiarities. Then I will pay attention to the imagery and the stylistic devices that are used to transmit a certain atmosphere. Moreover, I will outline how the flower in "The Wild Honey Suckle" is described. In a manner analogous to that"

The New Anthology of American Poetry Book Excerpt:

Overview: Steven Gould Axelrod, Camille Roman, and Thomas Travisano continue the standard of excellence set in Volumes I and II of this extraordinary anthology. Volume III provides the most compelling and wide-ranging selection available of American poetry from 1950 to the present. Its contents are just as diverse and multifaceted as America itself and invite readers to explore the world of poetry in the larger historical context of American culture. Nearly three hundred poems allow readers to explore canonical works by such poets as Elizabeth Bishop, Robert Lowell, and Sylvia Plath, as well as song lyrics from such popular musicians as Bob Dylan and Queen Latifah. Because contemporary American culture transcends the borders of the continental United States, the anthology also includes numerous transnational poets, from Julia de Burgos to Derek Walcott. Whether they are the works of oblique avant-gardists like John Ashbery or direct, populist poets like Allen Ginsberg, all of the selections are accompanied by extensive introductions and footnotes, making the great poetry of the period fully accessible to readers for the first time.

Jefferson s America 1760 1815 Book Excerpt:

A captivating and lucid narrative of America's revolutionary generation, Jefferson's America takes the reader from the earliest rumblings of colonial dissent, through the crises of revolution and nation-making, to the heroic drama of the War of 1812. Risjord deftly weaves together strands of biography and social history with military and political history to depict the rich fabric of the young republic. While most writers on this period conclude with the end of the Revolution, the ratification of the Constitution, or the election of Jefferson, Risjord contends that there is a fundamental continuity in the history of the Early Republic. The basic problems involved in creating a stable, representative government were not resolved until the "second war of independence," a symbolic end for the Revolutionary generation, which produced a sense of national unity and determined the viability of the new nation. Risjord incorporates new social and economic perspectives, and he deals suggestively with the struggle over "who shall rule at home." Yet he still presents the pivotal events of the War for Independence, the framing of the Constitution, the "Revolution of 1800," and the War of 1812 in an interesting and understandable way. This is no watered-down version of the national myth, but a subtle and well-told story. The third edition reflects new research on a number of topics; including the role of women in the resistance to British measures; the impact of the Revolution on blacks, both slave and free; and the lot of the common soldier during the same period.

Early American Poets Book Excerpt:

America did not declare independence in its poetry as quickly or as dramatically as in politics. It took time for the new nation to free itself from the many and widely contrasting traditions, customs, codes, and cultures it had inherited, and expressed itself through scores of imitators before it found its own characteristic way of thinking, reacting, and writing. Here is the poetry of early America, revealing the spirit, the scenes, and the turbulence of the period, and setting forth the works of over forty accomplished poets, many of whom are forgotten to all but the literary historian. This collection in devoted to the expanding spirit as well as the formative genius of America.

About Philip Freneau Targets and Self Assessment Book Excerpt:

Seminar paper from the year 2007 in the subject American Studies - Literature, grade: 1.0, Johannes Gutenberg University Mainz (Department of English and Linguistics), course: The Rhyme and Reason of American Poetry, 20 entries in the bibliography, language: English, abstract: Philip Freneau was one of the most discussed poets of the late eighteenth century. On one hand he was celebrated as the “Poet of the American Revolution” (Eberwein 191) or the “Father of American Poetry” (Stauffer 52), a journalist of influence, a patriot and skilful writer, on the other hand he was forgotten for a long time. How did Philip Freneau see himself? What were his targets and how did he try to reach them? This paper examines Freneau’s look on his role as an author on his poetry and plans. What kind of influences affected or promoted his career? Regarding his own poems “To an Author”, “The City Poet” and “To a New England Poet” his description of an author’s life – and therefore his life – will become apparent. Furthermore, a closer look on his contemporaries, the Connecticut Wits, especially Dwight, Barlow and Bryant will display how independent and original Freneau’s writing was, and what kind of relationships he had towards these American authors. At the same time his relationship towards British poets is interesting: He thought he rejected most of their writing; but was he really not influenced by them at all? Could it be that he sometimes even copied parts of their work? After having a short look on other intertextual influences like Greek mythology, verses from the Bible and Classic forms, this paper will look back on his life in a retrospective way and analyse his attitude towards himself. Did Freneau manage to reach his goals or did he lose sight of them?
