Pressestimmen"Intelligent and carefully researched... Strongly recommended."-Choice "This lively new study explores the diverse ways in which British Romantic writers responded to the 'great moral question' of their era, that of slavery... A valuable reconstruction of a key aspect of the cultural imagination of the Romantic period."-Times Literary Supplement "A major contribution to the cultural understanding of Romanticism. Though there have been studies of Romanticism and slavery, none has the range of historical reference and the broad interpretive contexts provided by Lee."-Alan Bewell, University of Toronto
