The Making of British Atlantic Literature, 1765-1835

Juliet Shields

  • Distinguishes the migration stories of the Scots, Irish and Welsh from those of the English for their unique contributions to American cultural identity
  • Shows how the narratives appropriated from Welsh, Scots and Irish migrants by American writers merged with representations of Native Americans
  • Illustrates the dialectial relationship between nation and migration through the stories that late eighteenth- and early nineteenth-century Britons and Americans told about transatlantic migration and settlement
