Review quote

`The Slave's Narrative is the most sophisticated and comprehensive book we have yet on the central issue facing students of 19th Century Afro-American literature: the question of how to analyse and evaluate the autobiographical tradition of ex-slaves. is unlikely that any single collection of essays could do greater justice than The Slave's Tale has to the breadth, vitality, and untapped potential of this topic and the discourse it has generated.'William L. Andrews, University of Wisconsin, (BALF Spring/Summer 1986) `This important collection of essays provides the most complete and cogent analysis of the slave narratives to date, and it demonstrates, again, that the narratives had and continue to have many uses ... The essays make a strong case for opening the historical and literary canon to include the slave narratives and testify to their enduring significance.' Library Journal `An imnpressive collection.'
