Civil War and After 1850-1900 Responses to the war: Id The hope of possibility Disillusionment- Justification for the Anti-Transcendentalists –Walt Whitman was alive and there during the civil war Little literature in the civil war (only two accounts written) Mostly letters and diaries, speeches and lectures Literature about the War came long after it had ended Realism A style of writing developed in the 19th century that attempts to depict life accurately without idealizing or romanticizing it Tried to be real Aimed at a "very minute fidelity" to the common course of ordinary life with subjects drawn from ordinary life --not just any details, but those that deal with the sciences of life Sought to explain WHY people do what they do Reacted to the idealistic romantic novel Maintained a Hero character BUT (s)he was flawed Revealed truth BUT hid it in a realistic story that COULD happen (even if it isn't likely) Subcategories of Realism Regionalism Focused on a small geographical area Dialect (speech patterns) Settings Manners (mirrored the novel of manners of Victorian England) AUTHORS: Mark Twain, Kate Chopin, Harriet Beecher Stowe, Bret Harte Naturalism Focused on the science of humanity Biology, environment, sociology, psychology Attempted to dissect human behavior with as much objectivity as a scientist Life is governed by instinct with few choices Life was portrayed as a grim, losing battle Psychological Fiction Naturalists who focused on the complex psychological and social factors of life Henry James Stephen Crane: most thought of as an ironist Juxtaposes human pretensions with the indifference of the universe 1817-1895 Born into slavery Separated from his mother quickly after his birth Never sure of his exact birth date Self-taught 21 years old Escaped slavery be fleeing to Massachusetts Got married Because a speaker for the abolitionist movement Changed his last name from Bailey to Douglass 1845 Went to England after publishing The Narrative of the Life of Frederick Douglass, an American slave In England, friends collected funds to finally buy his freedom 1847 Came home and published the North Star 1855 Published My Bandage and My Freedom "Escape" narratives were very popular and very influential in the abolitionist movement Civil War begins Worked for the Underground Railroad and helped recruit African American to join the Union forces Argued that the only real way of reconciliation and rehabilitation for his people was through education 1881 Published a final version of his story The Life and Times of Frederick Douglass The day Douglass died, he had spoken with Susan B. Anthony at a women's rights meeting Remembered for his humane ideals, persistence, and courage as well as his gifted writing style The Narrative of the Life of Frederick Douglass This story provided a graphic account of an event that took place when Douglass was 16 years old Thomas was Douglass' owner and he rented Douglass to Mr. covey for a year Narrator: Douglass himself Thesis: "You have seen how a man was made a slave; you shall see how a slave was made a man." The confrontation between Mr. Covey and Mr. Douglass was about Douglass stopped working in the assembly line and Douglass couldn't carry the wheat over anymore because he was sick Metaphors Embers being rekindled -- images of rebirth; the fire is going to start again Slavery -- crucifixion Freedom -- resurrection Synecdoche When part of something is used to represent the whole "The bloody arm of slavery" Spiritual Moving and immensely emotional song Developed from oral traditions of Africans held in slavery pre-Civil war Passed on orally and written/composed anonymously Concerned with issues of freedom Spiritual freedom-- salvation Literal freedom-- no longer a slave Moses-- deliverer of bondage; name used by many during this time of deliverance for the slaves Code songs (signal songs): songs that had details encoded in them that would lead slaves with directions, times, and meeting places for their escapes 1851-1904 Born in St. Louis, Missouri as Katherine O' Flaherty Father was an Irish immigrant Mother was a French creole Very well off, socialite family Exposed Kate to the arts, culture, and education Taught by her great-grandfather This sparked her imagination Independent, witty, smart, and popular Married Oscar Chopin at 19 years old French creole from NOLA European honeymoon Had six children and lived in Louisiana Oscar died at 32 years old from swamp fever Kate returned to St. Louis and began to write At 38 years old her first poem was published Followed by multiple short stories 1890 Published her first novel Theme: repression of women in Victorian America The Awakening Critics were brutal Immorality Removed, banned, and shunned 1960s and 1970s Work was rediscovered during the women's rights movement in America Today Recognized as a novelist of skill and perception (Realism) Most critics believe that her work appeared half a century TOO early 1835-1910 Regionalism Mississippi River Hannibal, Missouri Dialect Known for Humor Satire Social Political Worked as a river boat captain Popular on the lecture circuits Wrote Tom Sawyer, Huckleberry Finn, Yankee in King Arthur's Court, The Celebrated Jumping Frog of Calaveras County Pseudonym Fictitious name; most often used by an author Mark Twain was Samuel Clemen's pseudonym Dialect A particular form of a language that is peculiar to a specific region or social group Proverb A short, pithy saying in frequent and widespread use that expressed a basic truth or practical concept Aphorism A concise statement of a principle Maxim A brief expression of a fundamental principle, general truth, or rule of conduct Extended metaphor Metaphor carried throughout the whole piece of literature Twain compares the river with the book that "had a new story to tell every day" Hyperbole Extreme exaggeration 1842-1914 Tenth of 13 children born to an eccentric farmer and his wife 19 years old: fought in the civil war Battle of Shiloh and Battle of Chickamauga General Sherman's March to the Sea Cited 15 times for acts of bravery Post War Joined his brother, Alberto, in San Francisco Worked for the United States mint Began writing short stories Got the reputation of a "muckraking reporter" Muckraking: to search for and expose real or alleged corruption and/or scandal Became editor of News Letter in San Francisco Became friends with Mark Twain Disillusioned with deceit and greed of his times Got the nickname of "Bitter Bierce" Had a dark vision of life His work centered around warfare and the cruel joke that it plays on humanity 1913: lonely and weary of life so he want to Mexico and was never seen again Psychological Fiction Setting for this novel is the inside of the mind of a man condemned to death Explores the moments of Peyton Farquhar's life in a moment of crisis Omniscient Narrator seems to know everything about all characters or events Objective Narrator reports without comment, much as a camera would record a scene Third-person limited Narrator zooms in on the thoughts and feelings of a single character Bierce personifies death He establishes here the disturbing military efficiency and detachment of the scene that is unfolding It is like death, itself, is part of a formal, well-respected ceremony "The man who was engaged in being hanged was apparently about thirty-five years old." Engaged is an understatement here that emphasized the violence and cruelty of this act Bierce describes Farquhar in a way that makes the reader empathize and even cheer for him to escape We know he's not a villain, which makes us eager for him to receive justice Changes to third-person limited point of view "They hurt his war like the thrust of a knife; he feared he would shriek. What he heard was the ticking of his watch." By slowing down time and amplifying sound, Bierce conveys Farquhar's mental state and moves the narrator wholly into Farquhar's internal perspective Peyton Farquhar From Alabama Planter Slave owner Politician "Ardently devoted to the Southern cause" Was not able to fight but felt himself a "civilian who was at heart a soldier" Farquhar "assented to at least a part of the frankly villainous dictum that all is fair in love and war" Reveals to us his ideas about war-- anything goes during these times because of the nature with which our country is operating "He was a federal scout." Farquhar was tricked by a Union scout to try and sabotage the Union Army's position on Owl Creek Bridge We do not know why Farquhar was singled out by this man Alters between first person to third-person limited This section is a dream Dream sequence: mental illusion; usually of subconscious nature Adds to Farquhar's dreamlike disassociation from his own body "The humming of the gangs that danced... The beatings of the dragonflies' wings... The strokes of the water spiders' legs..." Senses have sharpened, which is oftentimes associated with a moment of death This provides the reader with a clue as to Farquhar's true destiny at this moment "Ah how beautiful she is" His "escape" was all in his mind Theme: illusion versus reality Farquhar has romantic illusions about the end of the war Reader's illusion is that of romantic escape by Farquhar Reality is that Farquhar died Situational Irony Irony involving a situation in which actions have an effect that is opposite from what was intended, so that the outcome is contrary to what was expected :
