Chinua Achebe by Catherine Lynette Innes( Book )

29 editions published between 1985 and 1999 in English and Undetermined and held by 888 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book provides a detailed examination of the writings of Chinua Achebe, Africa's best-known and most widely-read author, shortlisted for the 1987 Booker Prize. Dr Innes studies his writings, lectures and activities chronologically, in the context of Nigerian culture and politics and their interaction with Western cultures and powers. Her analysis goes beyond that of previously published studies, to examine Achebe's short stories, essays and poetry, and his most recent publications, Anthills of the Savannah (1987) and Hopes and Impediments (1988). Particular emphasis is placed on Achebe's departure from European literary models to create a new kind of fiction which seeks to challenge the preconceptions of African and Western audiences alike, and which is of considerable literary and political significance. This study will be invaluable to readers of Achebe and to students and teachers of African literature and politics, and modern fiction.--Publisher description
A history of Black and Asian writing in Britain, 1700-2000 by Catherine Lynette Innes( Book )

23 editions published between 2002 and 2008 in English and held by 788 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This is the first extended study of black and Asian writing in Britain over the last 250 years. Beginning with authors who arrived as immigrants or slaves in the mid eighteenth century, Lyn Innes includes a detailed discussion of works that were often enormously popular in their own time but are almost unknown to contemporary readers. Innes' fascinating study reveals a history of vigorous and fertile interaction between black, Asian, and white intellectuals and communities, and an enormously rich and varied literary culture which was already in existence before the post-war efflorescence of black and Asian writing. Utilizing a wealth of new archival material, Innes examines their work as part of an acceptance of and challenge to British cultural and ideological discourse. This volume offers a rich historical background for understanding contemporary British multicultural society and culture, and will be of interest to literary and cultural historians."--Jacket

It also includes historical surveys of the main countries discussed, a glossary, and biographical notes on major authors. Lyn Innes provides a guide to a vast array of authors and texts from a wide range of sites."--Jacket
Slave life in Virginia and Kentucky : a narrative by Francis Fedric, escaped slave by Francis Frederick( Book )

8 editions published in 2010 in English and Undetermined and held by 247 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The first of Fedric's two memoirs, Life and Sufferings of Francis Fedric, While in Slavery: An Escaped Slave after 51 Years in Bondage (1859), offers a brief but vivid and dramatic twelve-page description of his escape. Slave Life in Virginia and Kentucky; or, Fifty Years of Slavery in the Southern States of America (1863) provides a much more detailed account of life as a slave and of plantation culture in the southern states. Together the two works present a mesmerizing and distinct perspective on slavery in the South. Amazingly, these narratives, among the most interesting of the genre, remained out of print for nearly a hundred and fifty years. Collected here for the first time and meticulously edited by C.L. Innes, Slave Life in Virginia and Kentucky: A Narrative by Francis Fedric, Escaped Slave includes a contextual introduction, substantial biographical information on Fedric, and extensive annotations that situate and illuminate his work. Long forgotten and never before published in the United States, Fedric's narratives are certain to take their rightful place alongside the most recognizable accounts in the canon of slave memoirs

Slave Life in Virginia and Kentucky a Narrative by Francis Fedric, Escaped Slave by Catherine Lynette Innes( )

1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 1854, faced with the threat of yet another brutal beating, a fifty-year-old slave in Mason County, Kentucky, decided to try again to escape. His first attempt had ended in his near starvation as he hid for nine weeks in a swamp, before hunger compelled him to return to his master. This time the slave sought the help of a neighbor with abolitionist sympathies, and he joined the hundreds of other fugitive slaves fleeing across the Ohio River and north to Canada on the Underground Railroad. After his arrival in Toronto he discarded his master's surname (Parker), renamed himself Francis Fedric
