Sarah Piatt at 180 and Palace - Burner at 15: the View from 2016

2016 will mark the 180th anniversary of Sarah Morgan Bryan Piatt's birth and the 15th anniversary of the groundbreaking publication of Paula Bernat Bennett's Palace - Burner, the first modern anthology of the poet's work. Since her mid-nineteenth-century arrival on America's literary scene, Sarah Piatt has been recognized for her "womanly" subject matter and ethos, and the "feminine" quality of her poetry has been aptly characterized by nineteenth-century British author Alice Meynell "not as a grace, but as a force."

The Politics of Time in Nineteenth-Century U.S. Literature - ALA 2016 - May 26th-29th

Friday, January 8, 2016 - 2:34pm
Molly Ball

Recent years have seen a great deal of work on the temporality of the nation in nineteenth-century U.S. literatures. Dana Luciano, Lloyd Pratt, Thomas Allen, and others have considered how representations of time both produce and contest the boundaries of national belonging. This panel builds on such work, uniting questions about the political dimensions of temporality with questions about literary form. The panel will explore how plotting, narrative structure, and other explicitly literary ways of representing time organize, rework, and/or unsettle ideas about national time during the long nineteenth century.
