Caetana Says No: Women's Stories from a Brazilian Slave Society (New Approaches to the Americas) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

These true and dramatic stories of two nineteenth-century Brazilian women; one young and born a slave, the other old and from an illustrious planter family; show how each in her own way sought to exercise control over her life. The slave woman struggled to avoid an unwanted husband and the woman of privilege assumed a patriarch's role to endow a family of her former slaves with the means for a free life. Sandra Lauderdale Graham casts new light on larger meanings of slave and free, female and male, through these compact histories.

Synopsis:

Two nineteenth-century Brazilian women struggle to lead a free life against the men in their lives.

Synopsis:

Two nineteenth-century Brazilian women struggle to lead a life on their own terms.
