Inhaltsangabe: Sentimental Confessions is a groundbreaking study of evangelicalism, sentimentalism, and nationalism in early African American holy women's autobiography. At its core are analyses of the life writings of six women -- Maria Stewart, Jarena Lee, Zilpha Elaw, Nancy Prince, Mattie J. Jackson, and Julia Foote -- all of which appeared in the mid-nineteenth century.Joycelyn Moody shows how these authors appropriated white-sanctioned literary conventions to assert their voices and to protest the racism, patriarchy, and other forces that created and sustained their poverty and enslavement. In doing so, Moody also gives us a glimpse at the wealth of insights to be gained from these kinds of writings if we were to acknowledge the spiritual convictions of their authors -- if we read them because (not although) they are holy texts. The deeply held, passionately expressed beliefs of these women, says Moody, should not be brushed aside by scholars as naive or as indicative of the racial, class, and gender oppressions these women suffered. Similarly, Moody argues for new ways of looking at dictated narratives that do not relegate them to a status below self-authored texts.Helping to recover a neglected chapter of American literary history, Sentimental Confessions is filled with insights into the state of the nation in the nineteenth century.
From the Publisher: How black holy women, through their narratives, subverted an America determined to silence them.
