Philip Freneau (1752-1832, U.S. Poet and Journalist) and the American Indian

To determine whether Freneau's published views on the American Indian, both in prose and poetry, were based on genuine convictions founded on experience or on fashionable thinking inspired by Rousseau's noble-savage doctrine. The study will identify all Freneau's writing dealing with the American Indian, analyze them, and search for any experience on sources.
