Book Details:

In Time, Tense, and American Literature, Cindy Weinstein examines canonical American authors who make use of quite a lot of tenses to tell a story that has already taken place. This book argues that key texts in the archive of American literature are inconsistent in their retrospective standing, ricocheting between earlier, present and future. Taking 'The Narrative of Arthur Gordon Pym' as her degree of departure, Weinstein reveals how Poe's strategy of representing time consists of careening tenses, missing chronometers and inoperable watches, thus establishing a vocabulary of time that is immediately anticipated in the fiction of Charles Brockden Brown and further articulated in works by Elizabeth Stuart Phelps, Theodore Dreiser and Edward P. Jones. Each chapter examines the often uncommon narrative materials of these novels and presents an opportunity to understand how notably troublesome historic moments, from the founding of the model new nation to the psychic penalties of the Civil Wrestle, uncover contextual expression by means of a literary uncertainty about time.
