Reading William Styron's "The Confessions of Nat Turner," which was celebrated and criticized in equal measure, prompted me to learn more about the historical Nat Turner. This is a collection of essays, mostly be historians and scholars, about Turner and the slave revolt he led in Virginia. For me the most interesting part was the essays about Styron's novel, which was controversial because Styron wrote it in first person and some claimed he falsified what was known about Turner, although as this book makes clear, he wasn't a well-documented figure. It was a little too academic for me, but was useful context for understanding the novel and Turner.
