Writing the Rebellion

Loyalists and the Literature of Politics in British America

Philip Gould

Oxford Studies in American Literary History

  • Provides a rich literary history of loyalist writing in revolutionary America
  • Presents a compelling case for thinking through the relationship between politics and aesthetic forms
  • Offers a completely different view of the loyalist/patriot contentions than appears in any of the recent, or any of the classical accounts of loyalism
