Clotel : or, the president's daughter by William Wells Brown( )

1 edition published in 1864 in English and held by 348 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Originally published in 1853, Clotel is the first novel by an African American. William Wells Brown, a contemporary of Frederick Douglass, was well known for his abolitionist activities. In Clotel, the author focuses on the experiences of a slave woman: Brown treats the themes of gender, race, and slavery in distinctive ways, highlighting the mutability of identity as well as the absurdities and cruelties of slavery. The plot includes several mulatto characters, such as Clotel, who live on the margins of the black and white worlds, as well as a woman who dresses as a man to escape bondage; a white woman who is enslaved; and a famous white man who is mistaken for a mulatto. In her Introduction, scholar Joan E. Cashin highlights the most interesting features of this novel and its bold approach to gender and race relations. This volume, the latest in the American History Through Literature series, is suitable for a variety of undergraduate courses in American history, cultural history, women's studies, and slavery

The beautiful Christine looks down on Dennis and toys with his feelings, for in her eyes he has nothing to compare to her refined European background. But the fire eventually fixes everything, revealing to Christine Dennis's higher nobility and converting her both to him and his God. Dennis, who has just witnessed the death of Christine's father when Baron Ludolph foolishly tried to save valuable papers from his downtown art gallery, makes his way to the North Division in order to find Christine

A "nineteenth-century domestic novel [which] focuses on the typically circumscribed life of a young southern woman ...The plot of Beulah follows the uneven fortunes of the orphaned Beulah Benton from her early teens to young adulthood.

A foregone conclusion by William Dean Howells( )

1 edition published in 1875 in English and held by 233 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

William Dean Howells (1837-1920) was an American realist author and literary critic. He wrote his first novel, Their Wedding Journey, in 1871, but his literary reputation really took off with the realist novel A Modern Instance, published in 1882, which describes the decay of a marriage.

His social views were also strongly reflected in the novels Annie Kilburn (1888) and A Hazard of New Fortunes (1890). While known primarily as a novelist, his short
At last : a novel by Marion Harland( )

1 edition published in 1870 in English and held by 233 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Mrs. Rachel Sutton was a born match maker, and she had cultivated the gift by diligent practice. As the sight of a tendrilled vine suggests the need and fitness of a trellis, and a stray glove invariably brings to mind the thought of its absent fellow, so every disengaged spinster of marriageable age was an appeal - pathetic and sure - to the dear woman's helpful sympathy, and her whole soul went out in compassion over such nice and and appropriated bachelors as crossed her orbit, like blind and dizzy comets
