3.0 out of 5 stars Political Mills & Boon, 4 Feb 2005
This review is from: Sab (Hispanic Texts) (Paperback)
Sab is an extraordinary work, the only Hispanic anti-slavery novel of sensibility and the work of a highly-regarded woman author. Dwelling on the emotions in post-Werther style, it tells us of the self-sacrificing passion of Sab for his owner's daughter, with whom he has been brought up. The sentiments are archetypally Romantic, the landscape descriptions evocative and the whole an extraordinary blend of sensibility, regionalism, feminism and emancipationism. The style is entirely conventional but the politics are not. The result is rather peculiar, a sort of superior political Mills & Boon. Beautifully introduced and annotated by Catherine Davies.
