"Louisiana Creole Literature: A Historical Study is a well-documented and engrossing scholarly account that analyzes and does much to valorize the longstanding multicultural and multilingual literary history of this unique American state."
-Eric Sellin, professor emeritus of French and Francophone literature at Tulane University, New Orleans
"We have waited long for just such a book, and Professor Brosman has rewarded our waiting more than handsomely. Scorning tendentious literary 'theory' in favor of hard scholarship and sensitive close reading, she has opened a varied and vital Francophone tradition in American letters to future systematic study, at the same time shedding new light on Anglophone 'interlopers' like Cable, King, and Chopin. Our study of American literature, especially in the South, will never again be quite so insular. This is literary history and criticism of a high order, foundational in the fullest sense."
-William Bedford Clark, professor of English at Texas A&M University
