Black Atlantic Writers of the Eighteenth Century Résumé

Black Atlantic Writers of the Eighteenth Century: Living the New Exodus in England and the Americas Olaudah Equiano

This important book brings together for the first time major works by four black writers who published between 1770 and 1793: Ukawsaw Gronniosaw, John Marrant, Ottobah Cugoano, and Olaudah Equiano. Crisscrossing the Atlantic ocean from West Africa to the West Indies, from the American mainland to the British isles, these men share a dramatic story of captivity and liberation, wayfaring and adventure. They also share a story of spiritual salvation, of adapting the christian faith to their own heritage and to their own needs. Through their autobiographies and essays, letters and addresses, these writers lay the groundwork for black Atlantic culture.
