Summary
This title weaves together literary criticism and historical narrative to describe the strong friendships between men that supported and inspired some of America's greatest writing - the Gothic novels of Charles Brockden Brown, the essays of Ralph Waldo Emerson, and the novels of Herman Melville. The book traces the genealogy of these friendships through a series of stories. Throughout, this book demonstrates the many ways in which the struggle to commit feelings to paper informed the shape and texture of American literature
