It started by a woman, who shamed another woman by being a descendant of a slave, which inspired Levy to write her book “The Long Song”. The whole idea at first was to write a historical book, but after she learned that, she could not find much of the history of the slaves, she decided that she wanted to write a novel instead, but still based on the same theme. She wanted to give the slave ancestors a voice, and touch a subject not many people have written or talked about. “Writing fiction is a way of putting back the voices that were left out.” (Page 8, line 131-133).

Rebecca Lee Crumpler is a woman that history knows little of other than her degree and the little she wrote about herself in the beginning of a book. What makes this woman so important to history, and so important to me, is that Rebecca Lee Crumpler was the first African-American woman to earn an M.D. degree in the United States, and one of the first African Americans to write a book of medical advice. Crumpler, born in Delaware in 1831, was raised by her aunt in Pennsylvania. Crumpler’s aunt was a woman who spent much of her time caring for sick neighbors and friends.

One night when Clara dissatisfied him, “he lost control and struck her in the face, knocking her against the wall…finally [she] opened her eyes.

Additionally, after she struck her husband, she thought that it was “funny” on how “he remained standing” for a while. Usually after committing a crime, people would immediately feel guilty and sorry, but Mary though it was “funny” and even “giggled” when the detectives ate the evidence. The readers would say she went insane after killing her husband and feeding his colleagues with the murder weapon, which creates tension within the readers. Briefly, Roald Dahl uses insanity to create suspense in ‘Lamb to the Slaughter’ as people that are insane are unpredictable, leading the audience to anticipate the ending of the
