Genius in Bondage: Literature of the Early Black Atlantic

This collection of essays explores “transatlantic black writing between 1760, when religion gave English-speaking black writers a voice, and 1833, when Britain ended slavery in its remaining colonies in the Americas.” Writers examined in these essays include Mary Prince, Phillis Wheatley, Olaudah Equiano, and Ignatius Sancho. This resource offers insight into very early transatlantic black writing and commentary by 18th century black writers on the writings of other 18th century black writers.
