ALGERINE CAPTIVE, THE ROYALL TYLER (1797) A central but underappreciated figure in the emergence of American national literature, Royall TYLER (1757–1826) is probably best known for his nationalistic play The Contrast (1787), a fairly conventional comedy of manners distinguishing Yankee virtue from English vice.

Tyler’s apparent intention in writing the book was to warn America’s democratic citizens of their dangerous capacity for ignorance and hypocrisy.
