The Life of Paul Laurence Dunbar: Portrait of a Poet

Paperback (Enslow Pub Inc Sept. 1, 2014)
Author Catherine Reef paints a rich and memorable portrait of the first African American to earn his living as a writer. "I know why the caged bird sings," wrote Paul Laurence Dunbar in "Sympathy," one of his best-loved poems. Born in 1872 to former slaves, Dunbar touched the nation with poetry that portrayed the sorrows and the joys of African-American life. Dunbar's work spoke directly to the hearts of his readers, and his legacy inspired the generation of African-American poets who followed.
