Robert Knox : The Races of Men: A Fragment

Charlotte Bronte to George Smith, 18 September 1850: 'You should be very thankful that books cannot "talk to each other as well as to their readers" ... Dr Knox alone, with his "Race, a Fragment" (a book which I read with combined interest, amusement and edification) would deliver the voice of a Stentor if any other book ventured to call in question his favourite dogmas.'

Century: 1850-1899     Reader/Listener/Group: Charlotte Bronte      Print: Book
