About this product
- DescriptionHow did slavery and race impact American literature in the 19th century? This book argues that they were the carriers of linguistic restriction, and writers like Frederick Douglass wrestled with the demands for silence and circumspection that accompanied the antebellum fear of disunion and the postwar reconciliation between the North and South.
