Race and Romanticism: The Case of "The Last of the Mohicans"

This paper will explore James Fennimore Cooper's discussion of race in his most famous work "The Last of the Mohicans." Early 19th century America was a hotbed of racial debates, and Cooper places his two female heroines on opposite sides, letting them tell the story of the issues that eventually led us to one of the bloodiest wars fought on American soil.
