Letters from an American Farmer by J. Hector St. John De Crevecoeur

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 literatures most pressing concerns and issues of identity, the Letters celebrates personal determination, freedom from institutional oppression and the largeness and fertility of the land, and also raises darker and more symbolic elements, particularly slavery. This is the only critical edition available of what is regarded as the first ever work of American literature.
