The West Point Treason in American Drama, 1798-1891.
Shillingsburg, Miriam J.
Educational Theatre Journal, v30 n1 p73-89 Mar 1978, Mar78
Discusses several plays concerning the treason of Benedict Arnold to demonstrate the changing taste in nineteenth century American drama. The plays move from neoclassic--with the depiction of the tragic stature of Andre--through the more melodramatic and gothic emphasis on Arnold's vengeful treachery to the unqualified romantic heroism of Washington.
