Description/Summary

Lydia Willsky-Ciollo is a contributing author, ""Countering the Rhetoric of Slavery: The Critical Roots and Critical Reception of Uncle Tom's Cabin".

Book Description: A survey of fiction that examines society and politics from the margins, often with radical and alternative views of the world. The literature of protest is defined as fiction and poetry that emerges from minority social positions and will critique majority status quo conditions. This literature covers a wide range of periods and will emerge from a variety of international authors and events, from American abolitionist narratives to the critique of the totalitarianism in 1920s Soviet politics. Rounding out the volume are a list of literary works not mentioned in the book that concern the theme as well as a bibliography of critical sources for readers seeking to study this timeless theme in greater depth. -- Publisher description.
