The girl who was to be named Phillis Wheatley was captured in West Africa in 1761 and taken to Boston by slave traders. She proved to be a precocious child and by the age of eighteen, she had produced a collection of impressive poems. With the 1773 publication of 'Poems on Various Subjects', Wheatley became the most famous African on the face of the earth. Today, critics regard her work as fundamental to the genre of African-American literature, and she is honoured as the first African-American woman to publish a book of poetry and the first to make a living from her writing. The Delphi Poets Series offers readers the works of literature's finest poets, with superior formatting. This volume presents Wheatley's complete works, with related illustrations and the usual Delphi bonus material. (Version 1)
