impossible to envision a truly egalitarian, multicultural society" (100). Concentrating on "The Quadroons" and "Slavery's Pleasant Homes," Fleischner, on the other hand, stresses that Child is able to "imagine a sisterhood that can tolerate inversions of power relations" and "[to offer] an alternative view of interracial relations among women" (138).
Karcher's and Fleischner's articles begin to form a dialogue about Child's work and her relation to the romance genre. Yet, on the whole, critical readings and focused articles on Child are still few and far between; they do not yet come together as a deeply involving, coherent discussion and debate on Child's work. More work needs to be done on Child's writings; her work deserves the extended, detailed, and multifaceted critical discussions that let her writings grow in our minds and that reveal their cultural and historical as well as formal complexities.
