Imagining the Creole City: the Rise of Literary Culture in Nineteenth-Century New Orleans
by Rien Fertel

216 Pages
5.5" x 8.5"
ISBN: 9780807158234

In the early years of the 19th century, the burgeoning cultural pride of white Creoles in New Orleans intersected with America’s golden age of print, to explosive effect. Imagining the Creole City reveals the profusion of literary output—histories and novels, poetry and plays—that white Creoles used to imagine themselves as a unified community of writers and readers.

Fertel has been researching new projects as a 2014/15 Dianne Woest Fellow at THNOC. The book, which retails for $39.95, is available for purchase at The Shop at The Collection.
