Frederick Douglass called Dunbar, the first African-American literary figure to achieve national prominence, "one of the sweetest songsters his race has produced and a man of whom I hope great things." Dunbar, the son of slaves, was particularly noted for writing his poetry in both classical English and in African-American dialect, but the public preferred dialect, such as in this volume. BAL 4957.

A clean, fine copy.
