Beschreibung

'Freeburg's insistence that Melville's representations of race are both historically concrete and philosophically abstract (beating on questions of ontology and epistemology) makes this book crucial for thinking about how Melville's writings address the complex relation between literature and history.' Hennig Cohen Prize Committee, The Melville Society
