The book was first published in , so it was able to relate aspects of life as a slave through poetry. Some of poems are written in the slave dialect, which takes some time read. In fact, because of that dialect, for me, it was necessary to read some of the poems several times. Some of them of fun the read and others are cause of great sorrow. Dunbar refers to many of his themes as lyrics, perhaps relating to the style which he wished to have poems viewed.
An example: sunshine and shadow; lowly life; hearthside. I think that there were so many themes of the poems that anyone can take away something from them. Washington, Whittier, Robert Gould Shaw. Poetry can be somewhat complex, especially in the what the author wants to convey.
The Collected Poetry of Paul Laurence Dunbar
It is worth taking the time. I felt that this book is worth having in anyone's collection. This is the definitive edition of America's first African-American poet's work, as it brings together all of Dunbar's poems and well worth a read. Dunbar's short stories are also excellent examples of early 20th century American literature, with wonderful local character and dialect, both of which are seen throughout his poetry. I had not heard of this author, ever, in my college or high school time. I decided that I needed to learn about this man.
I was amazed at his work. Not that he could do this work, but that his work, while it is poetry, it is a great quantity and it covers so many different things in his life. It covers love, laughter, death, work, slavery. It is in a dialect and plain English. He shows such emotion i I had not heard of this author, ever, in my college or high school time. He shows such emotion in his work. I read a little every day and just thoroughly enjoyed this work.
A must-have collection to get the full range of PLD's talents.
