Since our last exam, many of the writers have been attempting to figure out themselves in the context of what was happening in the second century of “British” presence in the colonies, and by the end of our reading for this exam, we now have a new nation with new challenges, old feuds, and new possibilities. There is certainly no one voice in all of this material, but each writer was beginning to claim what for him or her constituted a growing national identity. Select four writers from the following list of writers, and decide what we can say about their moves away from a British identity to an American identity and all points along the way. Your choices: Knight, Byrd, Woolman, Edwards, Crevecoeur, Franklin, Equiano, Wheatley, Irving, Emerson, Thoreau. Use specific scenes and lines.
