Roughly ten percent of the country’s Native American population served in the military, nearly one third of all able-bodied men.
Afterwards, decades of environmental contamination further eroded Native Americans’ former lands and traditional lifeways.
It is not too much to say that Romanticism would not have taken the form it did without the complex and ambiguous image of Indians that so intrigued both the writers and their readers.
Most of the poets of the Romantic canon wrote about them — not least Southey, Wordsworth, and Coleridge; so did many that have only recently been brought back to attention — including Bowles, Hemans, and Barbauld.
This book considers the views that Britons, colonists, and North American Indians took of each other during a period in which these people were in a closer and more fateful relationship than ever before or since.
It is, therefore, a book about exploration, empire, and the forms of representation that exploration and empire gave rise to — in particular the form called Romanticism, in which ‘Indians’ appear everywhere.
This book highlights their achievement in doing so — featuring discussions of several little-known but brilliant Native American writers.
