Description - William Bradford's Books by Douglas Anderson

Widely regarded as the most important narrative of 17th-century New England, William Bradford's "Of Plimmoth Plantation" is one of the founding documents of American literature and history. In this study, this portrait of the religious dissenters who emigrated from the Netherlands to New England in 1620 receives sharp textual analysis. Far from the gloomy elegy that many readers find, Bradford's history, argues Douglas Anderson, demonstrates remarkable ambition and subtle grace, as it contemplates the adaptive success of a small community of religious exiles. Anderson offers fresh literary and historical accounts of Bradford's accomplishment, exploring the context and the form in which the author intended his book to be read.
