The slave narrative has become a crucial genre within African American literary studies and an invaluable record of the experience and history of slavery in the United States. This Companion examines the slave narrative's relation to British and American abolitionism, Anglo-American literary traditions such as autobiography and sentimental literature, and the larger African American literary tradition. Special attention is paid to leading exponents of the genre such as Olaudah Equiano, Frederick Douglass and Harriet Jacobs, as well as many other, less well known examples. Further essays explore the rediscovery of the slave narrative and its subsequent critical reception, as well as the uses to which the genre is put by modern authors such as Toni Morrison. With its chronology and guide to further reading, the Companion provides both an easy entry point for students new to the subject and comprehensive coverage and original insights for scholars in the field.

Frederick Douglass was born a slave and lived to become a best-selling author and a leading figure of the abolitionist movement. A powerful orator and writer, Douglass provided a unique voice advocating human rights and freedom across the nineteenth century, and remains an important figure in the fight against racial injustice. This Companion, designed for students of American history and literature, includes essays from prominent scholars working in a range of disciplines. Key topics in Douglass studies - his abolitionist work, oratory, and autobiographical writings – are covered in depth, and new perspectives on religion, jurisprudence, the Civil War, romanticism, sentimentality, the Black press, and transatlanticism are offered. Accessible in style, and representing new approaches in literary and African-American studies, this book is both a lucid introduction and a contribution to existing scholarship.

حدث لم يسبق له مثيل في عالم النشر على الصعيد العالمي: للمرة الأولى، يكتب سجينٌ يومياته وهو لا يزال رهن الاعتقال في غوانتانامو. +++ منذ عام 2002 وحتى هذه اللحظة، يقضي محمدو ولد صلاحي أيامه سجيناً في المعسكر الاحتجازي في خليج غوانتانامو بكوبا. وطوال هذه السنوات لم توجّه إليه الولايات المتحدة أيَّ نوع من التُّهم. أصدر قاضٍ من المحكمة الفيدرالية قراراً يقضي بإطلاق سراحه في مارس 2010، ولكنّ الحكومة الأميركية عارضت قراره ذاك، ولا توجد الآن أية إشارات في الأفق تدلّ على أنّ الولايات المتحدة لديها نية لإطلاق سراحه. +++ في السنة الثالثة من أًسْره، بدأ صلاحي بكتابة يومياته، واصفاً فيها حياته قبل مغادرته بيته، في 28 نوفمبر عام 2001، واختفائه في سجن أميركي، ومن ثم «رحلته اللانهائية حول العالم» سجناً وتحقيقاً، وأخيراً حياته اليومية كسجين في غوانتانامو. يومياته ليست مجرد سجلّ حيّ لإخفاق العدالة، بل وذكريات شخصية رهيبة تتّسم بالعمق والسخرية السوداء واللطف المدهش.

As a leading thinker of the European Enlightenment, Voltaire is a central figure in France's collective cultural memory. The popularity of Candide has made him perhaps best known as a writer of tales. Yet these represent only a fraction of his entire œuvre. Voltaire created a style of authorship which made him the most famous writer in Europe and made him a figurehead for a certain style of writing and thinking. This Companion covers his plays, fiction, pamphlets, correspondence, biblical criticism, and historical, political and philosophical thought, to give a wide-ranging view of his writings. The most comprehensive book on Voltaire available in English, it makes accessible the most recent research in France as well as the English-speaking world, in a series of original essays and a guide to sources. The essays demonstrate why Voltaire remains an essential point of reference in defining the modern intellectual today.
