American Literature; Nineteenth Century American Literature
Though Edmund Wilson writes that the “period of the Civil War was not at all a favorable one for poetry,” many writers such as Whitman, Dickinson, Melville, Bryant, Whittier, Emerson, and others responded poetically to the pivotal event of the nineteenth century. Some wrote to support the Union cause while others wrote to cope with their personal grief and disillusionment. This panel will examine the healing role publicly and/or privately American poetry played during and after the Civil War. Please send abstracts of 250-500 words to Beth Jensen at email@example.com by September 30, 2013.
