  1. It is impressive how consicely and unambiguously he declares that England occupied America. Most American books spend time discussing the colonization of the land, followed by the rebellion via the revolutionary war.
    Also, though it is an incredible generazation to call the south merely agrarian, it is liberating to hear him say that the civil war, although a culture war betwern 2 societies, was definitively a war about the existance of slavery.

  2. american lit. was dominated by religion especially puritian ,was allowed to write under the amvience of bible but milton was also stunch puritian but wanted to establish free will??

  3. Very much thank you sir for this great lecture with multiple information about American literature.
