About Book

Book Description
Miss Ravenel’s Conversion is important in American literary history as the first novel to depict the Civil War with realism. Its battlefield scenes owe much to John De Forest’s own experience as a captain in that conflict. But in 1867 genteel readers were affronted by De Forest’s frank view of war and sex. Though praised by William Dean Howells, the novel was forgotten after De Forest’s death in 1906. It was later rediscovered by Van Wyck Brooks and other critics.
