Contending Forces: A Romance Illustrative of Negro Life North and South (Schomburg Library of Nineteenth-Century Black Women Writers) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Both an extraordinarily detailed examination of black life in nineteenth-century America and a richly textured and engrossing piece of fiction, Contending Forces remains one of the most important works produced by an African American before World War I.

Synopsis:

In Contending Forces (1900), her best-known novel and her only work of fiction published in book form during her lifetime, Pauline Hopkins uses the conventions of the sentimental romance as she seeks to encourage social change.
