    Colonial literature. Because of the large immigration to New England in the s, the articulation of Puritan ideals, and the early establishment of a college and a printing press in Cambridge, the British colonies have often been regarded as the center of early American literature. However, the first European settlements in North America had been founded elsewhere many years earlier. Harriet Beecher Stowe was a leading intellectual of her era and was renowned not only for her writings and thoughts but also for taking up the social issues of her time. We bring to you a treasure trove of quotes that have been excerpted from her novels, books and writings.   The Minister's Wooing is the first of Harriet Beecher Stowe's three great novels of New England religion, that weave scenes and folklore of New England life with the debates and religious agonies that led her from her father's Edwardsian revivalist Calvinism to evangelical Episcopalianism/5(2).
