The Islamic Lineage of American Literary Culture. Muslim Sources from the Revolution to Reconstruction (Book)
Title: The Islamic Lineage of American Literary Culture. Muslim Sources from the Revolution to Reconstruction
Author: Jeffrey Einboden
Abstract: Uncovering Islam's little known yet formative impact on U.S. literary culture, this book traces genealogies of Islamic influence that span America's earliest generations, reaching from the Revolution to Reconstruction. Excavating personal appeals to Islam by pioneering national authors - Ezra Stiles, William Bentley, Washington Irving, Lydia Maria Child, Ralph Waldo Emerson - Einboden discovers Muslim discourse woven into the familiar fabric of unpublished letters and sermons, journals and journalism, memoirs and marginalia.
