Cover for SHERMAN: African-American Poetry of the Nineteenth Century: An Anthology

African-American Poetry of the Nineteenth Century

An Anthology

In this bestselling companion to her pioneering study, Invisible Poets, Joan Sherman continues to make new generations aware of the "invisible" legacy of nineteenth-century black American poetry. The 171 poems here, by thirty-five men and women, have been transcribed from first editions and are annotated in detail.

"Ever since Invisible Poets we have needed an informed and comprehensive anthology of African-American poetry in the nineteenth century. Now we have it. No one but Sherman could have done the job so well."--William L. Andrews, author of To Tell a Free Story
