Abstract and Keywords

This article examines so-called protest novels in the U.S.A. It discusses Ramona, the Uncle Tom's Cabin of the Indian, and compares present-day protest novels with those of the nineteenth century. The article analyzes the social-protest literature authored and/or adapted by Harriet Beecher Stowe, Helen Hunt Jackson, and José Martí, and argues that the Stowe–Jackson text network suggests a way for the comparatively minded to think both within and beyond comparison.

Keywords: protest novels, U.S.A., Ramona, Uncle Tom's Cabin, social protest, Harriet Beecher Stowe, Helen Hunt Jackson, José Martí
