One of the most famous voices in the 19th-centurty slave narrative was Mary Prince, who maintained “few people in England know what slavery is.” In sourcing, transcribing, editing and trading narratives—between the Caribbean and North America, between Boston and Liverpool— these activists created the product we now know as the slave narrative. The aim of my scholarship has been to restore objectivity to the study of these narratives by stylistic study of the texts in the context of their public acceptability and parliamentary effectiveness. How did stories move around, from small West Indian islands, to cities on the Atlantic seaboard, to London and around in an earnest but arguably hypocritical cycle? Why were some stories better products than others? Close study of selected texts will lead to some tentative answers.

Michelle Gadpaille (B.A. Yale, PhD. Toronto) teaches English Literature at the University of Maribor. Recently she has published the monograph The Ethical Atlantic: Advocacy Networking and the Slavery Narrative, 1830-1850.
