"There are many reasons to welcome Adeleke Adeeko's new edition of the letters of the Reverend Phillip Quaque: the letters bring new insights into the contradictions that defined the encounter between Europeans and West Africans in the modern period, and of Quaque's complicated life as he tried to negotiate his role as a subject caught between the aspiration to be modern and the brutality of the slave trade. Adeeko's careful editing of the letters makes them accessible to modern readers and ensures that the troubled and troubling voice of the African will become central to our understanding of the 'Black Atlantic'."--Simon Gikandi, Princeton U. *** "An accomplished literary study, taking Quaque most seriously and paying very close attention to his language - the tenor, tone, even identifying different dramatis personae of many Quaques in the letters occasioned by circumstance, and richly speculating on the meaningful relationships among and between all these literary strategies."--Tejumola Olaniyan, U. of Wisconsin Madison.
