PAUL LAURENCE DUNBAR: The Life and Times of a Caged Bird
In this volume Jarrett offers a revelatory account of a writer whose Gilded Age celebrity as the "poet laureate of his race" hid the private struggles of a man who, in the words of his famous poem, felt like a "caged bird" that sings. This work transforms how we understand the astonishing life and times of a central figure in American literary history. Photos.
