Writing Deafness: The Hearing Line in Nineteenth-Century American Literature written by Christopher Krentz

 

Writing Deafness: The Hearing Line in Nineteenth-Century American Literature written by Christopher Krentz

Synopsis:


Taking an original approach to American literature, Christopher Krentz examines 19th-century writing from a new angle: that of deafness, which he shows to have surprising importance in identity formation. He demonstrates that deaf and hearing authors used writing to explore their similarities and differences, trying to work out the invisible boundary, analogous to Du Bois's color line, that Krentz calls the "hearing line." Discusses authors including James Fenimore Cooper, Lydia Huntley Sigourney, Herman Melville, and Mark Twain.
