Review ?Woodard provides a lucid, learned, sensible introduction to the intersection between the traditional canon and African British writing. Moving in her first chapter from a brief discussion of Enlightenment theories of race to Pope and the Great Chain of Being, Woodard establishes some important intellectual contexts for the African British writers who afterward broke into print and established what Toni Morrison would call a black presence in the English literary marketplace.... And an introductory book is exactly right for this emerging field at this time. Woodward deftly weaves certain concepts from postcolonial theory with insights from scholarship on African American literature and the most sophisticated theories of race. The relevant and comprehensive critical, historical, and theoretical material included in substantial footnotes and bibliography is invaluable.?-Choice Book Description Looks at representations of blacks in eighteenth-century British literature to illuminate British ideas about race during that period.
