Trajectories of Freedom in American Literature explores the ways in which U.S. foundational conceptualizations and ideals of freedom have infused the literary imagination and informed the representational strategies of writers belonging to different periods of American literary history. The search for freedom has been approached not simply as a theme that runs through U.S. literature, but as a discourse that informs American literary works at various artistic and formal levels: from the revision of established conventions of genre and closure, to the relationship with the very notion of literary authorship and the conceptualization of literary oppositionality. The authors discussed in this volume span the period from the mid-nineteenth to the late twentieth century, offering insight into the poetics and the politics of freedom in American literature.
