(p.223) Chapter 7 Bradford's Ancient Members' & “A Case of Buggery … Amongst Them”

Jonathan Goldberg

Fordham University Press

The combination of forward-moving chronicle and backward-glancing composition that produces Bradford's text, Franklin argues, offers a “counterpoint between the ideal and the real” written along the axes of inclusion and exclusion; in attempting to represent the community of Pilgrims as insulated and unified in its goals and beliefs, Bradford's story is continually undone by all those forces represented as outside that exclusive sphere. By the end, Franklin writes, Bradford “is forced to see how hard it is to attribute inner tensions solely to figures who presumably are outside the colony.”
