Dreaming black/writing white : the Hagar myth in American cultural history by Janet Gabler-Hover( Book )
8 editions published between 1999 and 2000 in English and held by 384 libraries worldwide
"Hagar, the Old Testament Egyptian heroine who bore Abraham's son at the behest of Sarah, was traditionally regarded as an African. Yet the literature and paintings of the nineteenth century depicted Hagar as white." "Dreaming Black/Writing White examines how the Hagar story was representative of the ways in which African Americans shaped the cultural identity of nineteenth-century America even as whites continued to disavow their contributions. The perception of Hagar as black meant that she could represent a combination of sexual passion and artistic creativity that empowered women in the process of taking on male roles of economic authority in American society."--Jacket

This set is meant to address several kinds of readers at once: high school or college students, library patrons, the teacher of American literature, American history, or American studies, a researcher, and the "common" reader. For all of these kinds of readers the essays in these volumes may serve either as a cogent brief analysis of the topic or as a starting point for further research. Although the essays are authoritative and accurate, they are not neutral synopses. Each expresses the point of view and, indeed, the argument of the contributor. In the aggregate, they reflect theoretical perspectives of contemporary literary criticism and historiology. (from preface)
