About this product
- DescriptionThe Eclipse is a memoir or autobiographical vignette by James Fenimore Cooper that was written between 1833 and 1838 recounting his own experience of a total eclipse of the sun in Cooperstown on the morning of June 16, 1806. It was published posthumously in the September, 1869 issue of Putnam's Monthly Magazine. Susan, Cooper's daughter, found it among his papers. James Fenimore Cooper (September 15, 1789 - September 14, 1851) was a prolific and popular American writer of the early 19th century. His historical romances of frontier and Indian life in the early American days created a unique form of American literature. He lived most of his life in Cooperstown, New York, which was established by his father William. Cooper was a lifelong member of the Episcopal Church and in his later years contributed generously to it. He attended Yale University for three years, where he was a member of the Linian Society, but was expelled for misbehavior. Before embarking on his career as a writer he served in the U.S. Navy as a Midshipman which greatly influenced many of his vels and other writings. He is best remembered as a velist who wrote numerous sea-stories and the historical vels kwn as the Leatherstocking Tales. Among naval historians Cooper's works on the early U.S. Navy have been well received, but they were sometimes criticized by his contemporaries. Among his most famous works is the Romantic vel The Last of the Mohicans, often regarded as his masterpiece.
