Rhetorical Deception in the Short Fiction of Hawthorne, Poe, and Melville

Edwin Mellen Press, 1998 - 106 pagina's
This study analyzes an innovative rhetorical strategy employed in certain of the most challenging and misunderstood stories of American Renaissance, including Young Goodman Brown, Murders in the Rue Morgue and Benito Cereno. In these stories the reader is forced to take the view of a character who is self-deluded and implicated in crime, yet whose nature is never explicitly revealed, except through the works latent symbolic structure. The study seeks to offer original readings of these stories, identifying them as a significant sub-genre of the modern short story.
