Editorial Reviews

"The author displays his vast knowledge of slavery literature on every page of this fascinating, horrifying, necessary collection; he provides a set of general introductions, plus copious and extremely useful introductions and biographical information for every poet, notes for virtually every obscure reference, and a chronology of the period's slavery 'events'.... In short, he has assembled a monumental, wide-ranging, deeply informative, even moving volume. Essential."--Choice "A truly valuable collection of poetry relating to slavery both in Britain and the United States, many of the verses culled from obscure sources."--Studies in English Literature 1500-1900
