In stylistic purity and the clarity with which Tyler investigates and dramatizes American manners, the critic Jack B. Moore has noted, The Algerine Captive stands alone in our earliest fiction. It is also one of the first attempts by an American novelist to depict the Islamic world, and lays bare a culture clash and diplomatic quagmire not unlike the one that obtains between the United States and Muslim nations today.
