Includes index.

[This book is] a collection of essays and reviews addressing the autobiographical narratives written or dictated by ex-slaves of African descent in the eighteenth, nineteenth, and twentieth centuries, and has a two-fold purpose: to demonstrate the nature and function of the interpretation of this curious genre of literature and to explicate the structure of the world these narratives represent. We have chosen these commentaries carefully. These contributions from scholars of different disciplines demonstrate remarkably diverse methodological approaches to narrative studies. We undertook this project--the collection of representative examples of two hundred years of speculation upon the nature and function of the narrative of slaves--simply so that a fair sample of historical analysis and literary criticism of this body of compelling texts, would be readily accessible in one volume"--Pref.

About this record

This screen shows the complete catalog entry of the title you selected.

The Film/Digital Notes contain a description of the microfilm or microfiche numbers. Some family history centers and libraries maintain collections of previously loaned microfilms or microfiche. A camera icon indicates items that are digitally available online.

Generally, catalog entries are written in the same language as the original record they describe.

Reasons why microfilms may not yet be available digitally on FamilySearch.org include:

  • The microfilm may be scheduled for future scanning.
  • The microfilm may have been scanned, but have a contractual, data privacy, or other restriction preventing access. FamilySearch makes every effort to enable access dependent on decisions of record custodians and applicable laws.
