From the Publisher"Brown's biography offers twenty-first-century scholars a model for understanding these intellectual endeavors as facets of a whole, as essential to our understanding of cultural production."
"The brilliance of Brown's excavation of her career and the reverential consideration she provides for Hopkins make for happy reading and a long overdue appreciation for a true 'black daughter of the revolution.'"
-African American Review
"Brown uses extensive archival research, including genealogical materials, to trace significant events in Hopkins's life and experiences of her ancestors and to clarify inconsistencies in earlier studies. . . . The definitive Hopkins biography."
-Journal of American History
"Well written and an easy read. . . . This magisterial biography is a first-rate contribution that will appeal to scholars in New England studies, cultural studies, women's history, and African American studies."
"A rich and rewarding text and a skillful biography, which appeals to the reader interested in literary, regional, political, and family history; intertextuality; and interdisciplinary studies. This biography is an excellent example of the possibilities inherent in a revisionist view of history with race and gender at the center."
-Journal of African American History
"Includes not only excellent readings of her novels . . . but also much new information about Hopkins' ancestry and her later years. . . . Provides a solid base for future study. . . . Highly recommended."
Lois Brown's biography of Pauline Hopkins is a truly astonishing piece of scholarship.
