Sentimental Democracy: The Evolution of America’s Romantic Self-Image
Andrew Burstein (au). Americans have used words of sentiment & sympathy, passion & power to explain their country’s unique democratic mission. Here Burstein examines the emotional dynamic & the metaphorically rich language which Americans developed to express their guiding principle: that the New World would improve upon the Old. Burstein shows how the 18th-century “culture of sensibility” encouraged early Americans to make a commitment to the Enlightenment’s optimism about a global society. This ideal yielded to Jackson, & the language of gentle feeling was succeeded by Manifest Destiny. Yet Americans never stopped celebrating their innate impulse to do good.
