Re-reading Mary Seacole’s Wonderful Adventures through Bernardine Evaristo’s Soul Tourists

Enza Maria Ester Gendusa

Risultato della ricerca: Chapter


The essay illustrates the ways in which the incorporation of authentic excerpts from Mary Seacole’s autobiography in Bernardine Evaristo’s novel Soul Tourists acquires a significant cultural value within the novel’s representational strategies. The essay also explores the extent to which Seacole — together with her work — can be thought of as a litmus paper in the context of Britain’s self–representation and strategies of identity delineation.
