Sab (1841) by
Thursday, March 7th 3:15 p.m., King Hall B3006
The book is widely available in paperback and Kindle editions in Spanish and in English translation.
Book description from the University of Texas Press translation:
“Eleven years before Uncle Tom's Cabin fanned the fires of abolition in North America, an aristocratic Cuban woman told an impassioned story of the fatal love of a mulatto slave for his white owner's daughter. So controversial was Sab's theme of miscegenation and its parallel between the powerlessness and enslavement of blacks and the economic and matrimonial subservience of women that the book was not published in Cuba until 1914, seventy-three years after its original 1841 publication in Spain.”
