Description

The Schomburg Library of Nineteenth-Century Black Women Writers General Editor: HENRY LOUIS GATES, JR.

Responding to the wide recognition this series has received, Oxford now presents four more of these volumes in paperback (to add to the eight already available). Each book contains an introduction written by an expert in the field, as well as an overview by Henry Louis Gates, Jr., the General Editor.show more
