(THIS BOOK IS MANDATORY)! The Norton Anthology of American Literature: Beginnings to 1865 shorter 9th edition
Total of two assignment, one is essay and the other long answer questions.
Using the 2 uploaded files (207 Beginnings to 1820) and (207 Columbus Winthrop Williams Rowlandson Mather), examine and discuss how early American literature reflects the actual, conflicted, hybrid character of what “Americanness” is—keeping in mind not only issues of race and culture, but of religion, politics, and other ideologies as well.

Last Name of Author, First and (if any) Middle Name of Author. Title of Work within
the Anthology (in quotation marks if a short story or a poem, underlined or
italicized if a play). The Full Name of the Anthology (underlined or italicized)
followed by the edition. Translator (Trans., only if the original work was not
written in English; first name first; if more than one, alphabetical by last name).
Editor (Ed., first name first; if more than one, alphabetical by last name). City
of Publication: Publishing Company, Latest Copyright Date. Pages that the
work occupies within the anthology (numbers only).
(Notice how the entries are listed alphabetically according to the author’s last name, and how they are reverse indented; that is, indented the opposite of how you indent a paragraph, with only the first line NOT indented.)
