202 } early american literature: volume 40, number 1 tional history--the commercial jeremiad, antislavery poetics, Anglo- and African-American captivity narratives, and the political and medical debates of the yellow fever--should have several far-reaching consequences for the study of this period. Positioning more canonical literature in the field Gould reconstructs for us here, the seduction novel comes to speak directly to the antislavery pamphlet, African autobiographers speak of capitalism to the leaders of industry, sentimental discourse delivers its charges to government officials, and commerce in turn imprints the currency of sentimental poetics. This Anglo-American literary history is evocative without being sketchy, intricate without ever becoming dense. It will shape the best inquiry into these complex waters in the years to come. jared gardner Ohio State University Mastery, Tyranny, and Desire: Thomas Thistlewood and His Slaves in the Anglo-Jamaican World. trevor burnard.
