Prophet of Protest book. Without a doubt the best writer on George Lippard, David S. Reynolds introduces the life and writings of one of America's great and greatly ignored authors.

Prophet of Protest book. For those interested, be aware that this volume is a condensed version of Reynold's more expansive study on Lippard. But unless you're able to shell out two hundred bucks for the now out-of-print parent volume, I highly recommend its lean and well-dressed son.

The fiery Philadelphia novelist and social reformer George Lippard was a respected friend of Poe, the founder of a nationwide labor organization, and a prolific author whose lurid exposé The Monks of Monk Hall (l845) was the most popular novel written by an American before the appearance of Stowe's Uncle Tom's Cabin. Lippard's writings, long neglected, are valuable documents of America's literary history, radical thought, and popular culture. The present volume, with a penetrating historical introduction and notes by David S. Reynolds, offers a rich sampling of Lippard's works, most of which are here reprinted for the first time since their original publication in the nineteenth century. Included are several hitherto unpublished pieces on Poe; Lippard's most important working-class writings, many of which are similar in spirit to those of his German contemporary Karl Marx; trenchant commentary on a wide variety of nineteenth-century social and literary currents; Lippard's most influential historical writings, including the famous Liberty Bell legend; and fictional passages in which Lippard experiments with dream imagery, the grotesque, and the erotic.
