Meet the Author

Paul Laurence Dunbar (1872-1906), the son of former slaves, was among the first African-American writers to forge a successful literary career. Much of his work was composed in dialect, and fostered an idyllic view of the Old South; this resulted in a critical backlash that only recently has given way to a more nuanced appreciation.
