William Apess’s Manhood and Native Resistance in Jacksonian America
Presents literary criticism which argues on William Apess's writings with regard to the gender role of male Native to the oppressive Anglo society of the Jacksonian era. The author criticizes how the Anglo society feminized Native people in order to rationalize their subjugation. Moreover, Apess defines manhood in the vein of classical republican tradition in order to challenge Anglo power and the Natives in the Jacksonian era.
