  • Product Description

In the aftermath of King Philip''s War in early American society, Massachusetts Puritan Mary Rowlandson recorded her experiences as an "Indian" captive. In a vivid story that recollects the details of these events, Rowlandson attempts to impart a message to her community through the use of three existing literary devices. The genre of the "captivity narrative" that evolved is a distinct literary mode developed as a confluence of these: spiritual autobiography, a documentary method meant to archive spiritual and emotional growth through a record of daily activities; the conversion narrative, which made public one''s theological assurance of God''s grace; and the jeremiad, a sermon form designed to remind Puritans of their Covenant with God. To her contemporaries, Rowlandson served as an example of God''s Providence. To later generations and specifically twenty-first century scholars, she represents the voice of a new genre of storytelling.
