Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The poems of noted African-American poet Effie Waller Smith were popular in magazines and in book form. Collected in this volume, they provide insight into the life and experience of this admired turn-of-the-century poet.

Synopsis:

This text is a supplement to the Schomburg Library of Nineteenth-Century Black Women Writers. This collection is the result of years of research and will serve as an indispensable resource in future investigations of black women writers.These works are invaluable sources for readers intent on understanding the complex interplay of ethnicity and gender, of racism and sexism- of how 'race' becomes gendered and how gender becomes racialized- in American society.
