9780300172416: The Puritan Origins of the American Self
Review:

"The issuing of The Puritan Origins of the American Self, with a fascinating new preface by Sacvan Bercovitch, is an occasion for celebration. A landmark contribution to American studies, the book is also a model, still vital and generative after many years, for any attempt to analyze the ideological dream-life upon which nations are founded. Bercovitch has an uncanny ability to be at once knowing and innocent, a sophisticated master of the textual archive and a wide-eyed stranger, like Kafka's Max Rossmann, amazed by what he is witnessing on the shores of the New World. A major and enduring achievement."-Stephen Greenblatt, Cogan University Professor of the Humanities, Harvard University -- Stephen Greenblatt "The Puritan Origins of the American Self is a classic text for American studies, and the splendid new preface makes it available for new generations. Known for its wide learning, clear and compelling prose, and above all for the strength of its twin arguments about the continuity of national culture and the flexible shape of American ideology, Bercovitch's book continues to be essential reading."-Michael Warner, Seymour H. Knox Professor of English, Yale University -- Michael Warner "Sacvan Bercovitch's insights about the formative power of the Puritan imagination remain as fresh and relevant in the post-9/11 world as they were in 1975, when he shaped a field of study. No one better understands than Bercovitch both the imaginative hold of the nation form and its intrinsic instability in a global network of allegiances and affiliations "-Priscilla Wald, Professor of English, Duke University -- Priscilla Wald

Review:

"'Perhaps the most penetrating examination yet published of 'the sources of our obsessive concern with the meaning of America." (Jack P. Greene, History) 'The most valuable achievement in colonial American literature since the best work of Perry Miller.' (David Levin, William and Mary Quarterly) 'A brave and brilliant book... that is the most significant and far-reaching contribution to the theory of American literature in recent years.' (Alan Trachtenberg, Partisan Review) 'A study which reaches with daring ease from the Bible and Augustine to Emerson and Whitman... and offers an agenda for the next several decades of scholarly work on colonial religious studies.' (John F. Wilson, Theology Today) 'Bercovitch casts a dazzling light on the myth of America and the conundrums of individuality and community that are the core of the American character.' (Michael Zuckerman, Early American Literature) 'A brilliant display of learning in the service of ideas... illuminating as with the sudden light of revelation the nineteenth-century landscape and its heroes.' (John Seelye, American Literature) 'An original and provocative exploration not just of a Puritan literary form but of the whole mode of national self-consciousness in America.' (Michael D. Bell, Chronicle of Higher Education)"
