Novel Bondage: Slavery, Marriage, and Freedom in Nineteenth-Century America

Product Description

 By Tess Chakkalakal
Assistant Professor of Africana Studies & English

Filling a long-standing gap in our knowledge about slave-marriage, Novel Bondage unravels the interconnections between marriage, slavery, and freedom through renewed readings of canonical nineteenth-century novels and short stories by black and white authors.  Tess Chakkalakal expertly mines antislavery and post-Civil War fiction to extract literary representations of slave-marriage, revealing how these texts and their public responses took aim not only at the horrors of slavery but also at the legal conventions of marriage.
