Antislavery Discourse and Nineteenth-Century American Literature examines the connection among antislavery texts and rising representations of “free exertions” in mid-nineteenth-century America.  Husband indicates how the pictures of households cut up aside via slavery, circulated essentially by means of girls leaders, proved to be the main strong weapon within the antislavery cultural crusade and finally became the state opposed to slavery.  She additionally finds the ways that the sentimental narratives and icons that constituted the “family defense crusade” powerfully prompted americans’ experience of the function of presidency, gender, and race in industrializing the US. Chapters research the writings of ardent abolitionists akin to Frederick Douglass, non-activist sympathizers, and people actively antagonistic to yet deeply immersed in antislavery activism together with Nathaniel Hawthorne.

In her writings about Southern slavery, Child moved from essays and policy prescriptions to fictional forms that clearly supported her policies; in her treatment of Northern socioeconomic reforms, however, the two emerged together. com - licensed to Taiwan eBook Consortium - PalgraveConnect - 2011-03-03 CHAPTER A N T I S L AV E R Y D I S C O U R S E New York offer a glimpse of a practiced social critic as she formed her thoughts about the new urban, industrial society and as she experimented with idioms for describing it.

While each issue of The Liberty Bell devoted some space to essays arguing for the Garrisonian brand of abolition, the heart of the gift book was composed of a cluster of closely related scenarios. Feckless slaveowners abandoned their female slave lovers and/or threatened to sell their own children; powerless female slaves fell prey to or chose death over the sexual exploitation of slaveowners; female slaveowners, in giving vent to their anger at slaves, lost all claim to being Christians or “true women”; and even the godly slaveowner found himself in debt and was forced to sell slaves, splitting up families.

6 The Inadequacy of the Separate-Spheres Model Child’s conceptualization of the “mothering state” has its roots in her antislavery fiction, which popularized the figure of the Southern tragic mulatta—a figure that bears a surprising relation to Child’s street urchin. These characters emerged simultaneously in Child’s writings in the early 1840s, and both point to the inadequacy of the separate-spheres model. At a time when American writers had largely abandoned seduction tales, the stories of tragic mulattas adapted the form of the seduction tale to the antislavery cause.
