`New People in a New World'?: Defoe's Ambivalent Narratives of Emigration
Joseph F. Bartolomeo
Regarding the article “Dutiful Daughters and Colonial Discourse in Jane West’s A Gossip’s Story,” a correction from the author, Angela M. Rehbein, 25 September 2012
In the version of this article originally published in Eighteenth-Century Fiction 23, no. 3 (2011), I make an error in my reading of Jane West's use of the term "Indies" in A Gossip’s Story. Specifically, I associate the character of Miss Morton with the plantation culture of the British West Indies in the late eighteenth century, and I use this detail to support a larger argument about the connections between female sexuality and imperialism in the novel. Miss Morton is not from the West Indies but from the East Indies.
