1-0 out of 5 stars Perils of Public Poetry
A much finer collection of Harper's verse than this could be made. Here are collected the most standard examples of Harper's public verse--in which the voice is declamatory and oratorical in a most wooden way and effective only in the public lecture hall. Not even "The Slave Mother" is here, the best of that type. Missing from his collection are the Aunt Chloe poems, the high point of her poetic output, where the public voice is dropped for the more intimate folk voice. The introduction to this book is plebian, revealing a weak literary sensibility. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Neglected sadly
Harper was a major political, economic, and educational figure in the entire period from the civil war until the turn of the century. The sweep of this book is that entire period.In this way Harper is really registering what is the last in a long dialog of texts about what social power can or did overthrow slavery, and what forces are behind this.Harper's opening chapters about the slaves under slavery, the slaves during the civil war, their actual role in stopping the confederacy, the intelligence of the slaves, and all are not just idle depictions, but responses to those like Delany who felt the slaves were incapable of revoltion.Harper's analysis of the strength and the struggle of the freedmen and freedwomen after slavery tends to also reply to the debate about whether they were worthy of freedom, and whether the fall of reconstruction was inevitable.
At times Harper's concern for these debates weakens the plot as a modern reader would see it.Moreover, though her description of struggle through out the early parts of the book is gripping, as you gets to the close without more to offer than education and social uplift, the book also tends to seem weak to the modern reader trained to more visceral and personalized plotting.When Harper wrote, particularly in the tradition she writes, often the overall message as she delivers it, was seen so much more important than the plot. A message such as this was what the reader bought a book for then.

Like Blake and Incidents in the Life ofa Slave Girl this is a historic document. Unlike so of those texts, this is written with hind sight from decades latter, by one of the last of the pre-civil war Black literary/political intellectuals to survive.

5-0 out of 5 stars A Beautiful, Optimistic novel from the Age of Reaction
While it might easily be regarded solely as a criticism on slavery, Frances E.W. Harper's Iola Leroy is a novel that tackles an infinite array of issues affecting the black race, and America in general, during the late19th century. These issues range from gender, to internalized racismamong the Negro of lighter skin color, the infamous "Negroquestion," the hypocrisy of religion, and many others. Tne mostundeniable value of the book, is the call that the author makes forliteracy, temperance, and the uplifting of the race.

Harper, likeDubois, is optimistic about the future and potential of African-Americans.She sustains that now that the doors of education, religious freedom, andof economy and capitalism are open to the race the expectations are greatboth on the part of the whites and the blacks themselves.

Theundeniable value of the book, is the call that the author makes forliteracy, temperance, and the uplifting of the race. This novel deservesextensive study not only as a feminist or ethnic work; it is one of thebasic works of American Literature which can be read and enjoyed by anyoneinterested in social issues and fine reading material. ...
