Abstract
Description
Two chapters on Pauline Hopkins. The publisher's jacket describes Carby's book as "the first book to interpret and provide a cultural history of black American women's writing from slave narratives to the early twentieth century." This book deserves a respected place in what has become today a burgeoning literature dealing with Afro-American writers.
