Example text

Carl Binger’s 1970 biography, for example, found in Jefferson’s relationship to blacks a “perilous dilemma between his head and his heart”: “One cannot escape the feeling that he was attracted to them, even sexually; but these feelings were ‘ego-alien’ and had to be pushed aside. ”9 While more recent Jefferson scholarship tends to take its distance from the earlier psychobiographies, the trope of Jeffersonian “ambivalence” is certainly alive and well. 11 Without debating the merits of these psychological approaches for understanding Jefferson himself, I want to raise the possibility that, historically speaking, far more is at stake here than Jefferson’s personal “ambivalence,” “anxiety”, or indecisiveness about slavery.

38 It was Fields who perhaps countered Winthrop Jordan’s underlying premises most succinctly and powerfully. To state the problem in epistemological terms, Jordan presumed that the “Negro” preceded the “slave” as the object of European knowledge. ”40 Indeed, Jordan’s trope of the “brand” of race deploys one of the central tropes of nineteenth-century racialism, that of the racial mark or stamp. ”41 At its root, this is not only a question of ideology, but a more general philosophical question about perception and classification, and the epistemological gestures which ground them.

12 I aim here to extend Ferguson’s observation and to register its implications for antebellum literary history. An exemplary instance of this political reticence can be found, paradoxically, in the place where slavery was most hotly debated in this period. During the Constitutional Convention of 1787, arguments about the destiny of the slave trade and about whether slaves would count in the apportionment of representatives in the House provoked regional conflicts that nearly made the proposed Union impossible.
