Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

These writings, which first appeared in 1841, tell us much about the writer herself and the city in which she lived: Hartford, Connecticut. A cultural centre of the new nation, the city's Congregationalism, its free black society, and local literary tradition, are all reflected in Ann Plato's work. The topics that dominate are her ardent Christianity, her belief in education as a means of advancement, and her romantic preoccupation with death and, occasionally, racial issues.

Synopsis:

In 1841 Ann Plato's Essays; Including Biographies and Miscellaneous Pieces, in Prose and Poetry appeared. Printed for the author at Hartford, Connecticut, and containing an introduction by the famous abolitionist, Reverend Dr. James W.C. Pennington, the work not only reveals much about an extraordinary black woman but also reminds us again of the city - now overshadowed by other urban centers - that was a cultural center of the new nation.
