Resistant Bodies: Defiance and Opposition in American Literature

Examples of passive resistance, such as Herman Melville’s Bartleby, populate all eras of American literature, everywhere calling into question the logic of the state. As distinct from actively violent fictional or real life revolutionaries such as Toni Morrison’s Seven Days Society or John Brown, these figures resist dominant discourse and oppressive modes of being through non-response, misdirection, or refusals to participate. Such reactions expose the gaps and injustices of the state machine, providing examples of lives that can, as Thoreau argues, “be a counter-friction to stop the machine.”
