America's Imagined Revolution

The Historical Novel of Reconstruction

«This illuminating book examines one of the central paradoxes of Reconstruction, namely, how the event of emancipation, a radical historical break, can still seem like an unfinished or aborted revolution—perhaps even a mirage or 'nonevent.' America's Imagined Revolution takes up this puzzle and turns it into a lens for rethinking the very concept of revolution itself. Tomos Wallbank-Hughes's canny, penetrating analyses of historical novels about Reconstruction and its aftermath uncover new ways to understand emancipation as a complex, 'epoch-making force.' By the end, we are able to see literature anew as an exhilarating 'terrain for theorizing revolution.' A real achievement of lasting importance." - Nancy Bentley, author of Frantic Panoramas: American Literature and Mass Culture, 1870-1920»
