Hector St. John de Crevecoeur (1735-1813), a French-American writer, was responsible for the first American vel deemed successful throughout Europe. With Letters From an American Farmer, Crevecoeur depicted the newly settled America as a country, and t just a system of colonies. This epistolary vel gave America an identity, expounding on the concept of The American Dream, with its themes of equal opportunity and self-determination, while also exploring the damage and conflict caused by slavery, an institution to which Crevecoeur was strongly opposed. Letters From an American Farmer begins idealistically, the first few letters written in an idealistic tone, then expands to paint a full and vivid picture of a society in a state of turmoil, ravaged by civilization. This work has been translated into several languages, a landmark literary achievement, as it helped transform the New World into America in the minds of Europeans.
