Summary
Drawing on Alexis de Tocqueville's Democracy in America, along with work by Gustave de Beaumont, Lydia Maria Child, Nathaniel Hawthorne, and Herman Melville, Greiman tracks the crises of sovereign power as it migrates out of the state to become a constitutive feature of the public sphere. Bringing together literature and political theory, she argues that the antebellum public sphere emerges as a spectacle with investments in both punishment and entertainment
