About this product
- DescriptionWhen twenty-seven-year-old Margaret Walker's first collection of poems, For My People, won the Yale Poets Award in 1942, she was just beginning her long and distinguished career as a poet, velist, biographer, and teacher. When her vel Jubilee was published to great acclaim in 1966, the New York Review of Books said, [It] chronicles the triumph of a free spirit over many kinds of bondages. Jubilee is teworthy for being one of the first vels to present African American history from both a black and female perspective. It is a historical and fictional account of Walker's great-grandmother's life, from slavery through Reconstruction, as told to Walker by her maternal grandmother. In Trumpeting a Fiery Sound, Jacqueline Miller Carmichael examines the vel's genesis and composition, the process of revision and publication, the work's structure and narrative strategies, its use of history and folklore, and its critical reception in the three decades since its first publication.
