White men's magic : scripturalization as slavery

Author: Vincent L Wimbush
Publisher: New York : Oxford University Press, ©2012.
Edition/Format:   eBook : Document : EnglishView all editions and formats
Summary:
This is a transdisciplinary analysis of 'The Life of Olaudah Equiano', first published in England in 1789. It was one of the earliest and remains to this day one of the best-known "slave" narratives. It is not simply autobiographical and it does not unproblematically register the several interests and motivations of a slave, spiritual, or travel narrative.
