Description

I found this page from Harriet Beecher Stowe’s Sunny Memories of Foreign Lands particularly interesting because it’s focus is on encountering a castle, something we didn’t really discuss in class. The image illustrated on the page is authentic and highlights the town’s longevity as it is shown and described as a place that is “ancient”. This signifies how these Black Britons had never come upon a castle or something of that scale because it is written about in this book like a remarkable sight that dates back to the time of the Romans. Overall, I think this resembles how blacks were isolated and not looked highly upon like white people who lived in these spectacular castles.
