Phillis Wheatley Biography - Vincent Carretta

Regular price $26.95 Sale

In Phillis Wheatley - A Biography of a genius in bondage, Vincent Carretta has written a biography of this great writer as complex and nuanced as Wheatley and her works themselves.

By far the most comprehensive book about Wheatley's life and work; it reveals the fascinating life of a woman who rose from the indignity of enslavement to wide recognition of her works and become the first person of African decent to be published in America and only the second woman of any race and background to do so.
