About the Author

BRIAN YOTHERS is the Frances Spatz Leighton Endowed Distinguished Professor of English at the University of Texas at El Paso.


[A]n impressive history of the critical context for two of American literature's most widely read nineteenth-century authors. . . . [E]specially good reading for graduate students, as it offers a rare combination of coverage along several metrics: field, author, historical period, and archival history. -- Faith Barter * H-EARLY AMERICA *
This reevaluation of Douglass and Stowe allows readers to see them as transatlantic figures who operated within 'networks of affiliations' that range from Romanticism to the Civil Rights Movement and whose works embody crucial intersections of gender, race, and national identity. Highly recommended. Upper-level undergraduates through faculty. * CHOICE *
Yothers reenacts the nineteenth-century disciplinary formation of bibliography in the best sense of the term, providing a systematic description of the scholarly works' arguments. * AMERICAN STUDIES QUARTERLY *
