How did 19th Century American authors, such as Edgar Allan Poe and
Nathaniel Hawthorne, challenge the boundaries of storytelling within
their works? How did 19th Century authors challenge what was
considered “acceptable” and “suitable” subject matter by portraying
characters that were insane and/or morally corrupt? How did the
shattering of these boundaries aid in the emergence of the realism found
in 20th Century literature? Connecticut Review is looking for academic
essays that address the boundaries and boundary violations in 19th
Century American literature. Your work should be 2,000 to 4,000 words.
Submit work to: in hypertext form or send 2 hard
