Thematic Custom Text Starter List: Slavery

The following is an incomplete list of materials in The Broadview Anthology of British Literature that may lend themselves well to literature courses or modules with a focus on slavery and/or abolition. Many other works in the anthology may of course be taught with such a focus. With the exception of readings that are in-copyright to a rights holder other than Broadview Press, the majority of material published by Broadview is available for inclusion. Instructors assembling custom texts are invited to draw materials not only from The Broadview Anthology of British Literature, but also from almost any other anthology. More than 400 stand-alone works are also available to be packaged with or reprinted in custom texts, from The Interesting Narrative of the Life of Olaudah Equiano to The Octoroon and from Thomas Clarkson and Ottobah Cugoano to Clotel.
