ABSTRACT
The article focuses on literary history of the U.S. So successful has been the transformation of Americanist literary criticism that today the New Americanists can only be said to be new in the same way that the New Critics are. Grantland S. Rice's "The Transformation of Authorship in America" is primarily a work in early American studies, taking readers from Puritan New England to the New Republic; he deals with the American Renaissance only in a very brief afterward. Rice objects not to the New Americanist agenda in Michael Warner's "Letters of the Republic: Publication and the Public Sphere in Eighteenth-Century America," but to the optimism and positivism of his account.
