Explorations in Sights and Sounds
In this book, Minrose Gwin explores the interrelationships between women as a model of Southern racial experiences. In order to understand "this volatile, often violent connection between black and white women of the Old South," she examines a wide variety of books including proslavery and abolitionist fiction of the mid-nineteenth century, slave narratives, diaries, and modern fictional versions of the Southern slave experience by Faulkner, Cather and Margaret Walker.
