Beschreibung

This study considers the operations of slavery and of abolition propaganda on the thought and literature of England from the late-eighteenth to the mid-nineteenth centuries. Incorporating materials ranging from canonical literatures to the lowest form of street publication, Marcus Wood writes from the conviction that slavery was, and still is, a dilemma for everyone in England, and seeks to explain why English society has constructed Atlantic slavery in the way it has.

Pressestimmen

Wood manages to discuss an impressive and disparate range of 'white texts about slavery' while maintaining a sense of thematic continuity for much of the book. Essays in Criticism [Wood] succeeds in raising some important questions about the relativising dangers of postmodern bricolage in the composition of historical fiction. Essays in Criticism ... a discomforting and provocative study ... Wood's ambition to shock and unsettle his reader provides Slavery, Empathy, and Pornography with many of its most distinctive strengths. Essays in Criticism
