Harriet Jacobs: A Life

by Jean Fagan Yellin
£12.99   paperback  The Perseus Books Group (2005)

Harriet Jacobs: A Life by Jean Fagan Yellin Harriet Jacobs's Incidents in the Life of a Slave Girl remains the most-read woman's slave narrative of all time. Jean Fagan Yellin recounts the experiences that shaped Incidents - the years Jacobs spent hiding in her grandmother's attic from her sexually abusive master - as well as illuminating the wider world into which Jacobs escaped.
 
Yellin's groundbreaking scholarship restores a life whose sorrows and triumphs reflect the history of the nineteenth century, from slavery to the Civil War, to Reconstruction and beyond.
