Book Description:
These four volumes collect the poetic works of eleven African American women writing in the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. Volume 1 presents two collections by Mary E. Tucker Lambert Loew's Bridge, A Broadway Idyl, a poet's eye view of lower Manhattan just fter the Civil War, and Poems and Infelicia, a dramatic work by the notorious Adah Isaacs Menken. Volumes 2, 3, and 4 contain works by nine other poets, all of which were were published between 1895 and 1910, a particularly brutal era for blacks. But, surprisingly, only one of these women (Lizelia Moorer) protests the treatment of her race during this period of social upheaval and injustice. The remaining poets all conformed to the ethos of most black writers of the time, 'whitewashing' their art while educating and uplifting their people. Their themes are traditional love, nature, death, Christian idealism and morality, and family and are for the most part couched in conventional forms and language. As interesting for the subjects that they address as for those that they ignore, these selections offer a unique smapling of poetic voices that, until now, have gone largely unheard.
