Product Description

From Library Journal

Sherman (African-American Poetry of the Nineteenth Century, LJ 10/92) has culled 62 of the poems of George Moses Horton (ca. 1797-1883) from his three volumes: The Hope of Liberty (1829), the Poetical Works (1845), and Naked Genius (1865). She provides an in-depth introduction and biographical information that puts Horton in context, and she occasionally corrects errors of previous critics. Sherman also gives an insightful if brief analysis of his poetry. She particularly focuses on his connection with the University of North Carolina, where the self-educated Horton was campus poet for years. Because he was enslaved for 68 years, one of Horton's most powerful and poignant subjects is the desire for liberty, which was often cruelly snatched from him. Sherman's edition will aid in securing Horton's place as a significant 19th-century American poet. Recommended for larger poetry collections.?Louis J. Parascandola, Long Island Univ., Brooklyn

"The Black Bard of North Carolina" [is] the best introduction to Horton's life and work available.William L. Andrews, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill

2.0 out of 5 stars I was disappointed with "The Balck Bard of North Carolina" March 25 2013

This work is neither a biography nor a critique of the poetry. It was tidbits of information about his life and no discussion of his body of work. It can be read as a reference into what is unknown and unsaid and hopefully someone will take up the subject and write something more informative and more appreciative of the poetry.
