AUTHOR

Elaine G. Breslaw

SUMMARY

"Breslaw proposes that Tituba survived through 'creative adaptation.' Her central thesis is that when Samuel Parris had recourse to law 'to punish Tituba for her countermagic,' he 'created an intellectual crisis in New England that finally forced a convergence of the two disparate traditions.' She wants to navigate clear of the Uncle Tom problem, and define Tituba's difference, between voodoo and African superstition, on one hand, and Puritan conformism and acculturation, on the other. She does not want to lose her from the pantheon of female heroes...but is clearly uneasy as well as unconvinced that she was a wholehearted subversive."Elaine G. Breslaw is the author of 'Tituba, Reluctant Witch of Salem: Devilish Indians and Puritan Fantasies (American Social Experience)', published 1995 under ISBN 9780814712276 and ISBN 0814712274.
