Summary: Written by an emigrant French aristocrat turned farmer, the Letters from an American Farmer (1782) posed the famous question: ''What, then, is the American, this new man?'', as a new nation took shape before the eyes of the world. Addressing some of American literature's most pressing concerns and identity issues, these Letters celebrate personal determination, freedom from institutional oppression, and the largeness and fertility of the land. They also address darker and more symbol
ic elements, particularly slavery. This book is the only critical edition available of what is seen by many as the first-ever work of American literature.
