(p.193) Conclusion
Allegories of Encounter

Andrew Newman

University of North Carolina Press

The Conclusion uses Fanny Kelly’s 1871 narrative of her captivity among Lakotas to recapitulate the claims of Allegories of Encounter. Kelly’s narrative illustrates how both captives and captors saw literacy as a sign of cultural difference. Its intertextual references indicate her participation in a cosmopolitan, Christian literary culture and also suggest how she allegorized her unfolding experience.

Keywords:   allegory, captivity, intertextuality, Fanny Kelly, Lakotas, literacy, literary culture
