Editorial Reviews

"This discerning study delves into the life and work of Juan Francisco Manzano (1797-1854), the enslaved Cuban poet and author of Spanish America's only known slave narrative, Autobiografía de un esclavo (written in 1836, first published in Spanish in 1937)... A valuable contribution to the field of Latin American and Caribbean studies.... Recommended." -Choice
