National Identity and Anxiety in the Captivity Narratives of Mary Rowlandson and Mary Godfrey

Description: Undergraduate thesis expanding exploring the 1836 captivity narrative "An Authentic Narrative of the Seminole War; and the Miraculous Escape of Mrs. Mary Godfrey, and Her Four Female Children." Unlike Mary Rowlandson's "The Sovereignty and Goodness of God," the anonymously-authored "An Authentic Narrative" is almost certainly fabricated. There are no records of a Mrs. Mary Godfrey being captured and redeemed, or even existing at all. However, like Rowlandson's captivity narrative, it attempts to use a woman's experience of captivity to defend and stabilize a national male identity. "An Authentic Narrative" is a variation on the captivity genre that indicates a shift toward the white fraternal national identity described by Dana E. Nelson, even as the female captive's rescue by an escaped slave and the deaths of the white, male rescuers point to the fundamental incoherence of this national identity.
