(p.131) Epilogue The Plot Against England
The American Slave Narrative and the Victorian Novel

Julia Sun-Joo Lee (Contributor Webpage)

Oxford University Press

The epilogue focuses on Robert Louis Stevenson and Fanny Stevenson's collection of stories, The Dynamiter (1885). Set against the Fenian dynamite bombings in London, The Dynamiter revises the slave narrative to expose England's dwindling moral authority in the late-Victorian period. This epilogue addresses the cultural durability of the American slave narrative in the years following the Emancipation Proclamation, while considering how issues of authorship and authenticity continued to haunt the genre into the late nineteenth century.
