Excellent comprehensive biography of the first published English speaking published black poet Contrary to some assumptions Wheatley was subtly subversive of racist and sexist boundaries of the 18th century while becoming a highly educated upper middle class free woman Her story is fascinating and her sense of self both conflicted and confident She does not get the credit she deserves for expanding the strict lines of literature and art in America She used Christianity and conventional highly structured poetry to define herself and fight conceptions of black inferiority and upon buying her freedom after a promotional tour in England the slave system in the new world Academic but enlightened and not over written or meant to transform her into a symbol Highly well researched and annotated Recommend
