Abstract

After having spent several years in exile in Mexico during World War II, in 1949 German Jewish author Anna Seghers published two novellas set in the Caribbean during the time of transatlantic slavery. In this essay, through an investigation of the novella “Wiedereinführung der Sklaverei in Guadeloupe” (“The Reintroduction of Slavery in Guadeloupe”), I question what Seghers’s portrayal of differently gendered and raced characters says about her argument about revolutionary politics.
