By examining their lives within the social, political, and technological climates of their respective times, the author presents a strong argument for his new and radical reading of Poes Narrative of Arthur Gordon Pym and Twains The Great Dark (1898) as being Americas literary counterparts to Rousseaus social theories.

Arguing against the prevailing sentiment that Poes novel is merely popular fiction and that Twains tale is an unfinished diatribe, this study clearly delineates their serious attempts to reverse the moral malaise of nineteenth century America through personal spiritual renewal via the aegis of dream transcendence.
