The American Slave Narrative and the Victorian Novel

Julia Sun-Joo Lee

  • Presents the first major study of how the American slave narrative shaped works by Bronte, Dickens, Gaskell, and Thackeray
  • Cogently argued and lucidly written, this study offers interpretations that will alter our perception of classics such as Jane Eyre and Great Expectations
  • Offers a welcome addition to the growing transatlantic approach that is being increasingly applied to literature on both sides of the Atlantic
  • Will interest scholars of African American and British literatures
