Sample text

What lies beyond this stage, I argue in closing, is a later, more corporate version of the mercenary: the Pinkerton agent or the Blackwater guard, the member of a private force contracting with the state and acting in parallel to regular forces. The case of The Bravo also helps to clarify the way in which this is a transatlantic study, as Cooper’s novel does not easily occupy the usual categories of American literary difference. J. indd 26 22/4/10 10:34:14 Introduction [ 27 ‘one version or another of the doctrine of continued inspiration’ (1991: 220–1).

In these and other cases, the characteristics that drive complicated novelistic plots militate against a simple, pejorative presentation of mercenary action in military and civilian life. That is, when confronting mercenaries and mercenary actions, the special ability of the novel to contain many voices and perspectives, a characteristic emphasized by Mikhail Bakhtin and his followers, collides with and undermines the normal ease with which people resist identification with the mercenary. The five chapters of the book mainly address long narrative works by five major writers of the period: Brown, Charlotte Smith, Scott, Byron, and Cooper.

What lies beyond this stage, I argue in closing, is a later, more corporate version of the mercenary: the Pinkerton agent or the Blackwater guard, the member of a private force contracting with the state and acting in parallel to regular forces.
