Abstract

A comparative analysis of Robert Penn Warren’s Wilderness and Shelby Foote’s Shiloh reveals a similar historiography that both writers apply to the American Civil War. From a narratological standpoint, the novels are very different; however, the underlying theme is the same: the Civil War is an “unreligious” episode in an often oversimplified period in American history.
