ABSTRACT
The article states that the late eighteenth century not only marks America's entrance into the political arena as an autonomous nation, it marks the emergence of an American literature that both signals and helps solidify that national identity. Managing the marriage of political and literary ingenuity in true republican style, the "first American novel: William Hill Brown's "The Power of Sympathy: Or the Triumph of Nature," locates the conflicts of a newly emerging political body in the individual bodies of its middle-class characters.
