by James Fenimore Cooper,Thomas Philbrick,Marianne Philbrick


James Fenimore Cooper (1789-1851) grew up at Otsego Hall, his father’s manorial estate near Lake Otsego in upstate New York. Unless you're contemplating a thesis on the writing of Cooper (and you need info on his more boring works) I'd skip this.

James Fenimore Cooper (1789-1851) grew up at Otsego Hall, his father’s manorial estate near Lake Otsego in upstate New York. Educated at Yale, he spent five years at sea, as a foremast hand and then as a midshipman in the navy. At thirty he was suddenly plunged into a literary career when his wife challenged his claim that he could write a better book that the English novel he was reading to her. The result was Precaution (1820), a novel of manners.

James Fenimore Cooper (September 15, 1789 – September 14, 1851) was an American writer of the first half of the 19th century

James Fenimore Cooper (September 15, 1789 – September 14, 1851) was an American writer of the first half of the 19th century. His historical romances depicting frontier and Native American life from the 17th to the 19th centuries created a unique form of American literature. He lived much of his boyhood and the last fifteen years of life in Cooperstown, New York, which was founded by his father William on property that he owned.

James Fenimore Cooper, first major American novelist, author of the novels of frontier .

James Fenimore Cooper, first major American novelist, author of the novels of frontier adventure known as the Leatherstocking Tales, featuring the wilderness scout called Natty Bumppo, or Hawkeye. They include The Pioneers (1823), The Last of the Mohicans (1826), The Prairie (1827), The Pathfinder. Cooper’s mother, Elizabeth Fenimore, was a member of a respectable New Jersey Quaker family, and his father, William, founded a frontier settlement at the source of the Susquehanna River (now Cooperstown, New York) and served as a Federalist congressman during the administrations of George Washington and John Adams.

Its first appearance was in the year 1827. The Great Prairies appear to be the final gathering place of the red men. The remnants of the Mohicans, and the Delawares, of the Creeks, Choctaws, and Cherokees, are destined to fulfil their time on these vast plains. The entire number of the Indians, within the Union, is differently computed, at between one and three hundred thousand souls. Most of them inhabit the country west of the Mississippi.

I would call James Fenimore Cooper's works slightly enigmatic - he makes it rather difficult to draw connections between events and people, and plot structures don't seem to be his strongest point. The plot just meanders along following long adventures which should be sub-points to the plot but which turn out to be pillars of the novel.

James Fenimore Cooper (1789-1851) grew up at Otsego Hall, his father's manorial estate near Lake Otsego in upstate New York. His second book, The Spy (1821), was an immediate success, and with The Pioneers (1823) he began his series of Leatherstocking Tales. By 1826 when The Last of the Mohicans appeared, his standing as a major novelist was clearly established. From 1826 to 1833 Cooper and his family lived and traveled in France, Switzerland, Italy, and Germany.

In The Pilot (1824) and The Red Rover (1828), James Fenimore Cooper invented a new literary genre: the sea . Cooper drew on his direct knowledge of ships and sailors to present a truer picture of life on the sea than had ever before achieved in literature.

In The Pilot (1824) and The Red Rover (1828), James Fenimore Cooper invented a new literary genre: the sea novel. Collected here in a single Library of America volume, they are among his finest works. Bold, vigorous, original, each is a tale of high adventure that vividly captures the majesty and power of the seafaring life. As a boy of seventeen he had sailed before the mast on a merchantman bound from New York to London and then to Spain.

Turning to his own extensive maritime experience, Cooper’s novel, written in Paris in 1827, reflects his immersion in the romantic movement that was sweeping the Continent. European readers enjoyed his poetic and imaginative portrayal of the sea, while American readers were interested in how he depicted the early stirrings of nationalism in the New World decades prior to the Revolution.Cooper’s striking association of the sublime power of nature with the rebellious spirit of his pirate-hero established and defined the sea novel as a literary genre. By far the most influential of his maritime tales, The Red Rover was read and admired by Goethe and Berlioz, Melville and Conrad.This edition, the first to be based on Cooper’s original manuscript, offers the modern reader a major document of romanticism and a compelling narrative of adventure at sea.

I just can't get into this book. Since it was written a long time ago, the language is stilted and the sentences are long and complex. My brother says it will get better toward the middle of the book. We'll see...if I ever have nothing better to do with my time.

The Red Rover by James Fenimore Cooper could (or rather should, in my opinion) be classified as the definitive pirate story. Set in a time in which wars frequented the then infant american nation and when men were still civil towards one another regardless of apparent violent intentions or differences, this excellent master piece tells of adventurers upon the high seas and progresses beyond that into a simple plot which unravels itself masterfully.

It is indeed a sad fact that books like these are becoming more scarce upon our bookshelves.
