The Other John Adams, 1705-1740 - hardcover

[SR: 1504355], Hardcover, [EAN: 9780838639863], Fairleigh Dickinson Univ Pr, Fairleigh Dickinson Univ Pr, Book, [PU: Fairleigh Dickinson Univ Pr], Fairleigh Dickinson Univ Pr, The decade of the 1720s witnessed major changes in American culture. In his activities during the latter half of the decade, John Adams (1705-1740) reflected some of the dynamics of the time. A Congregational minister in Newport, this member of the Harvard class of 1721 became involved in an ongoing debate within his faith over which people are qualified to receive Holy Communion. During this time, Adams wrote poems and essays. Influenced by Addison, Dryden, and pope, among other recent or current British authors, Adams helped introduce neoclassical verse and the sophisticated Addisonian essay to American literature. Adams was more successful as a writer than as a clergyman. As a poet, he wrote a series of generally impressive personal poems, crafted effective images, created a memorable melancholic, composed a substantial poem in the Blackmorean mode, and translated parts of the Bible and Horace. Most of his poems were collected and published posthumously under his name in 1745. With his Uncle Matthew Adams and Mather Byles, John Adams participated in "Proteus Echo", the second essay series to appear n American newspapers. Although Adams was indebted to the past -- writing a substantial number of religious poems, for example -- he was in the vanguard of his day, especially as an author. Accordingly, he warrants consideration as a significant American figure of the 1720s, a decade when the culture was changing from primarily religious to secular., 2330, Authors, 2327, Arts & Literature, 2, Biographies & Memoirs, 1000, Subjects, 283155, Books, 2395, United States, 9681303011, American Revolution, 465246, Civil War, 9681307011, US Presidents, 2376, Historical, 2, Biographies & Memoirs, 1000, Subjects, 283155, Books, 2398, Religious, 2396, Leaders & Notable People, 2, Biographies & Memoirs, 1000, Subjects, 283155, Books, 9, History, 4762, Africa, 4808, Americas, 16252761, Arctic & Antarctica, 4884, Asia, 4921, Australia & Oceania, 4935, Europe, 4995, Middle East, 5032, Russia, 4853, United States, 5035, World, 4873, Ancient Civilizations, 5011, Military, 4987, Historical Study & Educational Resources, 1000, Subjects, 283155, Books, 10225, Movements & Periods, 10227, Arthurian Romance, 10229, Beat Generation, 10243, Gothic & Romantic, 10233, Medieval, 10236, Modernism, 10238, Postmodernism, 10240, Renaissance, 10245, Surrealism, 489654, Victorian, 10204, History & Criticism, 17, Literature & Fiction, 1000, Subjects, 283155, Books, 465600, New, Used & Rental Textbooks, 468220, Business & Finance, 468226, Communication & Journalism, 468204, Computer Science, 468224, Education, 468212, Engineering, 468206, Humanities, 468222, Law, 468228, Medicine & Health Sciences, 684283011, Reference, 468216, Science & Mathematics, 468214, Social Sciences, 684300011, Test Prep & Study Guides, 2349030011, Specialty Boutique, 283155, Books
