Meaning, Robert St. George argues, was layered, often indirect, and inextricably intertwined with memory, apprehension, and imagination. By exploring the linkages between such cultural expressions as seventeenth-century farmsteads, witchcraft narratives, eighteenth-century crowd violence, and popular portraits of New England Federalists, St. George demonstrates that in early New England, things mattered as much as words in the shaping of metaphor. These forms of cultural representation--architecture and gravestones, metaphysical poetry and sermons, popular religion and labor politics--are connected through what St. George calls a 'poetics of implication.' Words, objects, and actions, referentially interdependent, demonstrate the continued resilience and power of seventeenth-century popular culture throughout the eighteenth century.

Conversing by Signs: Poetics of Implication in Colonial New England Culture

The people of colonial New England lived in a metaphoric landscape, beset with superstition and fear of dangers, real and imagined, seen and unseen. According to folklorist Robert St. George, meaning was layered, often indirect, and inextricably intertwined with memory, apprehension, and imagination. Understanding their "language" is essential to appreciating their history. 134 illustrations.
