Same Fire ---------------------------------------------------------------------- Date: Tue, 1 Apr 1997 06:32:19 -0500 From: "Joseph C. Salmons" Subject: Query A grad student in our department (Cordelia Scharpf) is starting to work on some fiction written here and abroad in German by Mathilde Franziska Anneke, an abolitionist and early feminist leader. Much of the work deals with slavery. Anneke's representation of African-American speech owes much to English literary works of the time, but contains other elements as well. Some of these are Anglicisms, some stereotypical foreign talk and so on. Can anybody recommend good recent work on the representation of African- American speech in 19th c. literature? Has anything at all been done on this topic using literature in languages other than English? Thanks, joe salmons jsalmons[AT SYMBOL GOES HERE]facstaff.wisc.edu
