How did the authors of 18th and 19th Century American literature
represent the character of the non-believer in their works? For instance,
how did an author, such as Nathaniel Hawthorne in the story, “Young
Goodman Brown,” portray the perceived dangers of questioning faith? What
are the consequences for such characters due to their secular philosophy?
How does such secularism reflect the philosophy upon which the United
States federal government was built on? Connecticut Review is looking for
academic essays dealing with the representation of the non-believer in
early American literature. Your work should be 2,000 to 4,000 words.
Submit work to: in hypertext form or send 2 hard
copies to:
