Phillis Wheatley's Miltonic Poetics, Hardback Book

Phillis Wheatley's Miltonic Poetics Hardback


Phillis Wheatley, the African-born slave poet, is considered by many to be a pioneer of Anglo-American poetics.

This study argues how in her 1773 POEMS, Wheatley uses John Milton's poetry to develop an idealistic vision of an emerging Anglo-American republic comprised of Britons, Africans, Native Americans, and women.
