Review "W. C. Harris's E Pluribus Unum identifies a vital intersection between American constitutional law and American religious and imaginative literature. Harris correctly discerns that the American legislative problem and the millennial enigma of 'representation as such' are the same. As a result, he is able to throw important new light on the meaning both of American poetic originality (Poe, Whitman, Melville) and of the originality and challenge of the American social order."--Allen Grossman, Mellon Professor of English, Johns Hopkins University "As he analyzes the nation's foundational performative, e pluribus unum, W. C. Harris asserts that early American authors fashioned texts informed by and meant to respond to the fundamental contradiction between the constitutional imperative to unity and the representational inevitability of differentiation. Harris addresses literary theorists, political scientists, and scholars of American studies with an argument that is nuanced, eloquent, and theoretically informed."--Donald E. Pease, Jr., Avalon Foundation Chair of the Humanities, Dartmouth College About the Author W. C. Harris is an assistant professor of English at Shippensburg University of Pennsylvania.
