Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Spanning the gamut of literary genres, from autobiographical short stories to poetry, journalism, and novelettes, this is a comprehensive collection of one of America's most seminal women writers. A testament to the nineteenth century as birthplace for black woman writers, The Works of Alice Dunbar-Nelson offers insight into the themes of oppression and intolarance, often considered dangerous or ignored in the nineteenth century, but now pervade much writing today. Themes such as crossing racial boundaries, infused with Dunbar-Nelson's autobiographical fervor

Synopsis:

The Works of Alice Dunbar-Nelson offers a unique glimpse at the diverse roots of black women's writing in America. Ranging from autobiographical short stories to poetry, novellas, and journalism, Dunbar-Nelson's powerful work is marked by themes of opposition, difference, and the crossing of racial bounderies that made her work potentially too dangerous for her contemporary readers, but dominate much of writing today.
