Reviews

Boyd is excellent in addressing a formal critique of Mrs. Harper's work . . . an authentic study, perhaps the best we yet have of the writer.--Maryemma Graham "Northeastern University"
This book affirms and reclaims Frances E. W. Harper as a major force in the development of nineteenth-century thought, not only in her literary responses to the climate of her own time but also in her durability and relevance to the present. Aesthetically and politically, her work deserves the insightful critical attention which the author has given it. Dr. Boyd's sound scholarship and her perceptiveness and sensitivity as a poet combine to make this book a monumental contribution.--Naomi Long Madgett, Ph.D. "poet laureate of Detroit and author of Pilgrim Journey"
