Editorial Reviews

Review

"Creole Crossings makes a significant contribution to several fields, ranging from studies in the novel to transatlantic studies. Carolyn Vellenga Berman asserts that so-called public issues of race and slavery permeate eighteenth- and nineteenth-century French, British, and American domestic fiction. She illustrates her point by analyzing the ways in which the Creole woman born in the 'periphery' troubles plots conceived at the 'center.' The argument is compelling, the writing clear and elegant. Creole Crossings is a pleasure to read."—Carla L. Peterson, University of Maryland

I found that I did not have to be an academian nor a woman of color to be intrigued by this study. Glad to klnow what Creole really menas and how its portrayal in French and English ficiton influence how ALl women were treated.
