I've been having some trouble with finding a writer for my Am Lit class. It has to be an American writer between the 1500's to the 1800s. I came up with Cotton Mathers, Edger Allen Poe, Nathaniel Hawthorne, & Mark Twain. When I asked my professor if anyone was doing those she said yes. So I'm stuck at whom I should do. I keep thinking of early 20th century writers or foreign ones. It can be any writer that has done enough work to write about in a 1500 word paper. Does anyone have any ideas?
