... Hull succeeds not only in exploring writers whose work is hampered by their 'split authorial personalities' but also in outlining the effects of economic circumstances on literary production." --Signs

A biographical/critical study of three Harlem Renaissance poets--Angelina Weld Grimk#65533;, Alice Dunbar-Nelson, and Georgia Douglas Johnson--during a rich and colorful period. Writing from a black feminist critical perspective, Hull recovers these black foremothers and in the process shakes up the traditional black literary canon.
