5-0 out of 5 stars At last -- the full text of a marvellous and important book
For over a century, admirer's of Susan Fenimore Cooper's "Rural Hours" (1850) have been dependent on a heavily abridged version dating from 1887 -- the only one to be reprinted in modern times. Though"Rural Hours" is generally accepted both as good reading and as amajor contribution to American nature writing, it has not previously beenavailable as the author originally wrote it -- and as others, includingThoreau, read it. Susan Fenimore Cooper, long overshadowed by her novelistfather, is today becoming recognized as an important writer of the 19thcentury; this new text will make her most important and influential workfully available again both to scholars and toa new generation of readers.

5-0 out of 5 stars This is a great read, a book to learn from, and to cherish.
This is a beautiful book, from the painting of Cooperstown on the cover to glossary where historical references, or the names of birds or other words that have changed over time are explained. Cooper's prose is insightful andcharming, and, given the book's historial prespective,makes me thinkabout present and future environmental concerns for our country. RuralHours makes the chain of small mill towns we have here in the BlackstoneValley region of Massachusetts come alive--Cooper saw the quiet commerce ofthe canals give way to the noise and pollution of the railroad industry andrealized that the land and species of bird and animal life surrounding herwere threatened. However Cooper's response to these feelings of peril wasnot to preach, but rather to praise the countryside and the life forms shewitnessed. As a woman reader, I must also say that it right and just thatthe parts of Rural Hours that were omitted from all editions since 1870should be brought back to us to now think about, appreciate, and learnfrom. Since reading, this book has stayed with me--the many beautifulimages of nature that Cooper portrays, but also her quiet voice of urgencythat encourages me to continue positive action in my own community, to notonly save what land is left, but also to restore urban and otherenvironments that have been abused.I highly recommend Rural Hours--it's agreat read, a book to cherish. ...

Editorial Review

Product Description

Collected here are detailed and diverse essays, some that examine Rural Hours, Susan Fenimore Cooper's most famous work, and others that help establish Cooper as a major practitioner and theorist of American nature writing and as a socially engaged artist in many other genres. These essays discuss Cooper's uses and manipulations of various literary conventions, such as the picturesque, the literary village sketch, and domestic fiction, and illuminate her positions on conservation, religion, and woman's place in society.

The engaging collection is divided into four sections. The first features essays examining Cooper's work in light of her relationship with her famous literary father, James Fenimore Cooper, and their devotion to and cultivation of each other's careers. The second focuses on Cooper's fascination with landscape and its relation to her environmental philosophies. Rural Hours is the subject of the third section, which presents new readings on its subtly crafted authorial stance, its two complementary conceptions of time, and its re-valuation of rural and scientific ways of knowing. The collection concludes with four works whose insights into Cooper's views on gender, domesticity, and environmental philosophy grow out of comparisons with several contemporary women writers.

These remarkable essays by both established and emerging scholars of nineteenth-century literature present new findings and insights into a writer who is being reintroduced to the fields of eco-criticism and American literature.
