Bondwoman’s Narrative: Facsimile Edition
Hannah Crafts (au); Henry Louis Gates, Jr. (ed)
Written in the 1850s, it is the only known novel by a female African Amer. slave, & possibly the first novel written by a black woman anywhere. A work uncovered by Henry Louis Gates, Jr., it is a stirring, page-turning story of “passing” & the adventures of a young slave as she makes her way to freedom. This facsimile edition offers high-resolution reproduction of the manuscript that Gates found, presenting Crafts’s tale with a poignancy & power not found elsewhere. Together with Gates’s introduction -- which includes the story of his search for the real Hannah Crafts, the biographical facts that laid the groundwork for her novel, & a fascinating look at other slave narratives of the time -- this book offers a unique & unforgettable reading experience.
