Title Details
Ashes of the Mind by Griffin, M. A
Ashes of the Mind: War and Memory in Northern Literature, 1865-1900
by Griffin, M. A
 
Although the defeated Confederacy became best known for producing a literature of nostalgia intended to protect the South's own version of history, authors loyal to the Union also confronted the question of what the memory of the war signified. Griffin here traces a concern with individual and community loss, ambivalence toward victory, and a changing politics of commemoration in the writings of James Russell Lowell, Herman Melville, Henry James, Ambrose Bierce, and Paul Laurence Dunbar.
