British Fiction, 18001829

ANON. Hamel (1827)

Contemporary Reviews

La Belle Assemblée, 3rd ser. 5 (May 1827): 229.

Hamel, the Obeah Man,’ in two volumes, is a clever, spiritedly-written novel—rather a party-work by-the-bye—the object of which, is to elucidate the present state of society in the island of Jamaica, the treatment of slaves, the conduct of the missionaries, and the effects of that conduct upon the black population.
