About the Author

Lyndon J. Dominique is Assistant Professor of Eighteenth-Century British Literature and Critical Race Studies at Georgetown University in Washington DC.


This exemplary edition of The Woman of Colour, with its abundant historical context, explores vital interconnections of race, gender, and class. Its rich contribution to the debate about cultural identity and colonial power marks it as a classic." - Moira Ferguson, University of Missouri Kansas City

"Women of colour in eighteenth-century literature have become a 'spectral presence,' pushed into the invisibility of darkness, their voices unread or ignored. Now what has been in darkness is restored to light, as Olivia Fairfield can be heard anew. Born in Jamaica into a society in which one of her parents had enslaved the other, she is forced by law and custom to travel to the heart of colonial darkness in England itself. In a manner `polite yet aggressive,' she makes her voice heard." - Lise Winer, McGill University
