The author of the prize-wining and best-selling historical novel A Song of Africa, Ronald Wheatley turns his attention to the tumultuous days on the eve of the American Revolution in a courtroom drama that brings to life Boston slave poet Phillis Wheatley on trial before eighteen of the most eminent men of the Town. Her "crime", the God-given gift enabling her to compose poetry capable of touching the soul - words so brilliantly crafted that her work would be compared to England's Poet Laureate, Alexander Pope. Surely no mere slave could have written the finest poetry produced in the colonies. The outcome will determine not only Phillis' fate, but also a course of a young nation. On the eve of the American Revolution in the fall of 1772, 18-year-old Phillis Wheatley, the household slave of John and Susanna Wheatley, was invited to appear before 18 of Boston's most prominent men in the Governor's Council Chamber in Boston to defend the premise that she was the author of a collection of poems. The so-called "jury" was comprised of the most prominent men in Boston. This was not a jury of her peers but rather one comprised of all white, all male, and largely middle-aged men. There is no transcript of that proceeding. The Trial of Phillis Wheatley is a courtroom docudrama "depicting" what occurred in that room that day. The final verdict would change the course of American history. The Trial of Phillis Wheatley has been named Best Book published (indie list) in 2015. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Rosemary Benson.

Margaretta Matilda Odell's 1834 Memoir and Poems of Phillis Wheatley is the only substantive early source on Wheatley's life. Phillis Wheatley (ca. 1753-1784) is considered the first African American poet to write for a transatlantic audience, and her Poems on Various Subjects, Religious and Moral (1773) kindled debates about race. 1.

The world is a severe schoolmaster, for its frowns are less dangerous than its smiles and flatteries, and it is a difficult task to keep in the path of wisdom. (Phillis Wheatley) Phillis Wheatley has always been a difficult figure for people to wrap their minds around, both during her life and centuries after it. Indeed, she fits no easy stereotypes that historians or contemporaries liked to use to classify their subjects. Her "career" has always escaped definition. In the 18th century, enslaved people were not supposed to have been educated, certainly not to the level that Wheatley was, nor were they supposed to have creative abilities beyond those taught to them by their masters. In a time and place where slaves were rarely taught to read, they were obviously not expected to write better poetry than the vast majority of their peers. But if Wheatley refused to be placed in a box and labeled during her life, that has been even more the case after her death. Given that she was a child who was transported from Africa and raised in slavery, her poetry contains none of the sorrow or angst that modern readers would anticipate seeing. In fact, in one of her most controversial works, "On being brought from Africa to America", she wrote: "Twas mercy brought me from my Pagan land, Taught my benighted soul to understand That there's a God, that there's a Saviour too: Once I redemption neither sought nor knew. Some view our sable race with scornful eye, 'Their colour is a diabolic dye.' Remember, Christians, Negroes, black as Cain, May be refin'd, and join th' angelic train." This can seem disconcerting, but it is also in keeping with other Christian literature through the ages in that it points to something terrible being used by God to bring about conversion and salvation. In that sense, it is not so much a defense of slavery, as some would interpret it, as it is a glorification of grace that could overcome tragedy. Her 1. Language: English. Narrator: Scott Clem.

Multiculturalism and the American Self
50,00 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

The articles of this volume, which derive from two symposia held under the auspices of the Erasmus cooperation among seven European universities, address issues of the inter- and intracultural relations of different ethnic groups in America from the colonial period to the present time. In addition to the intercultural contacts between European settlers and immigrants on the one hand and minority groups on the other hand, emphasis is also given to the intercultural relations within white American literature. The common thread in all of these multicultural productions is the formation of an American self. Treatments of encounters between white settlers and Native Americans in the colonial period are set next to analyses of the minority works ranging from the poetry of Phillis Wheatley in the early republic, to questions of gender in slave narratives, to the fictions of Nella Larsen, Alice Walker, Toni Morrison, Gerald Vizenor, and Chicana writers. The implicit, often unintentional, stirrings of multiculturalism are the subject of articles on Henry Adams, Henry James, Thomas Wolfe, and Paul Green. Finally, the volume includes discussions of multicultural stereotypes, which determine the construction of American selfhood, in such motion pictures as Pocahontas, Forrest Gump, and Malcolm X.

African American Literature
45,00 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

African-American literature is the body of literature produced in the United States by writers of African descent. The genre traces its origins to the works of such late 18th century writers as Phillis Wheatley and Olaudah Equiano, reaching early high points with slave narratives and the Harlem Renaissance, and continuing today with authors such as Toni Morrison, Maya Angelou and Walter Mosley being ranked among the top writers in the United States. Among the themes and issues explored in African American literature are the role of African Americans within the larger American society, African-American culture, racism, slavery, and equality. African American writing has also tended to incorporate within itself oral forms such as spirituals, sermons, gospel music, blues and rap. As African Americans' place in American society has changed over the centuries, so, too, have the foci of African American literature.
