Argumentation et Analyse du Discours , 2011,
Abstract: En guise d’introductionPrononcé le 27 février 1860 dans la grande salle de l’Union Cooper pour le Développement de la Science et de l’Art, peu avant la création du Parti républicain, les élections présidentielles de novembre 1860 et à la veille de la guerre de Sécession (1861-1865), le discours de Cooper Union prend place à une période riche en événements fondateurs de l’histoire des Etats-Unis. Aussi est-il nécessaire d’en rappeler le contexte politique, indispensable à la bonne compréhensio...
Tra storia e mito. Politiche e usi politici di Abraham Lincoln
Marco Sioli
Altre Modernità , 2010,
Abstract: Barack Obama's election brought to the forefront one of the key figures of the nineteenth century, Abraham Lincoln, considered to be a founder of the nation by the new American President. Like Lincoln, Obama put the accent on unity and national goodwill. Like Lincoln, Obama nourished the roots that connected to the common man. The deep desire for change in American politics that Obama espouses also occurred during Lincoln's presidency. This essay dwells on Lincoln's words that are impressive in many respects, especially in the way they are able to communicate the passion of political involvement, as well as are impressive the images which represent the Great Emancipator in the different period of American history. Words and images reinterpreted Lincoln's myth in a contemporary mood, showing the how Lincoln became a continuously changing icon, down to the current presidency of Barack Obama.
Fiction as Reconstruction of History: Narratives of the Civil War in American Literature
Reinhard Isensee
American Studies Journal , 2009,
Abstract: Even after more than 140 years the American Civil War continues to serve as a major source of inspiration for a plethora of literature in various genres. While only amounting to a brief period in American history in terms of years, this war has proved to be one of the central moments for defining the American nation since the second half of the nineteenth century. The facets of the Civil War, its protagonists, places, events, and political, social and cultural underpinnings seem to hold an ongoing fascination for both academic studies and fictional representations. Thus, it has been considered by many the most written-about war in the United States.
Lincoln’s Image in the American Schoolbook
David Goldfield
American Studies Journal , 2009,
Abstract: Abraham Lincoln's image in American school books has reflected the shifting political and social landscape of American society. Following Lincoln's assassination in 1865, textbooks for the next half century portrayed him as a martyr for a mostly evangelical Protestant nation and as a role model for African Americans. The centennial of Lincoln's birth in 1909 and the massive immigration during the first two decades of the twentieth century broadened the image of Lincoln in textbooks as a common man and an inspiration for American diversity.
Abraham Lincoln’s Attitudes on Slavery and Race
J?rg Nagler
American Studies Journal , 2009,
Abstract: The life of Abraham Lincoln coincided with dramatic societal transformations that shaped the future of the United States. In the center of these developments stood the question whether that nation could continue to grow with the system of slavery or not. Inherently linked to that issue—that almost dissolved the nation—was the problem of racism and the future of race relations after emancipation. To examine Lincoln’s attitudes on slavery and race opens a window for us to look at his own struggles concerning these issues, but at the same time at the political and cultural contentions at large of a nation that he helped to save as President during the American Civil War. His legacy as the "Great Emancipator,” liberating over four millions slaves, has generated a controversial debate on Lincoln’s position towards race and racism.
Lincoln’s “Unfathomable Sorrow”: Vinnie Ream, Sculptural Realism, and the Cultural Work of Sympathy in Nineteenth-Century America
Gregory Tomso
European Journal of American Studies , 2011, DOI: 10.4000/ejas.9139
Abstract: I think that history is particularly correct in writing Lincoln down as the man of sorrow. The one great, lasting, all-dominating impression that I have always carried of Lincoln has been that of unfathomable sorrow, and it was this that I tried to put into my statue. --Vinnie ReamOn August 30th, 1866, Vinnie Ream, at the age of 18, became the youngest person, and the first woman, to be awarded a commission for a statue by the U.S. government [see figure 1]. The commission was for a life-size...
Lincoln à Cooper Union : Plaidoyer pour une critique néo-classique Lincoln at Cooper Union: a Rationale for Neo-Classical Criticism
Michael Leff,Gerald P. Mohrmann
Argumentation et Analyse du Discours , 2011,
Abstract: Le dernier numéro du Quarterly Journal of Speech présentait notre analyse critique du discours de Lincoln à Cooper Union. Bien que les considérations méthodologiques y soient peu développées, nous supposons que les fondements néo-classiques en sont apparents. Nous avions proposé une explication plus élaborée de notre approche méthodologique dans une première version ; mais les éditeurs avaient estimé qu’un unique article n’offrait pas assez d’espace pour tout à la fois justifier la démarche, ...
The Social and Cultural Construction of Abraham Lincoln in U.S. Movies and on U.S. TV
John Dean
American Studies Journal , 2009,
Abstract: Abraham Lincoln has constantly moved among and stirred Americans in the common, shifting ground of their popular, visual, and digital imagination. Nowadays, Lincoln is larger than the sum of his parts. This is due partly to his own prismatic personality, partly to his political genius, partly to the special needs of the American nation and its people. If Lincoln did not exist, someone, somehow, would have tried to construct a representative figure who came close to the mark of what the Civil War, the fight for Union, the failure of Succession, the liberty of the slaves and the material-spiritual expansion of America meant. But Lincoln existed. Lincoln hit the target. Here was witness, cause, martyr and lodestone all packed into one.
