Perry Miller and the Puritans: A Literary Scholar's Assessment.
Emerson, Everett
History Teacher, v14 n4 p459-67 Aug 1981
Critiques historian Perry Miller's treatment of the Puritans in American history for 1) inattentiveness to individual differences, 2) focus on theology, 3) failure to recognize the importance of typologies (biblical analogies) and metaphors to the Puritans, and 4) stressing the importance of the Puritan mind over their emotional lives.
