Review: The Age of Phillis

Bad news: Poems were interesting….that’s all. I only REALLY liked one “Isabell” (pg 93)…very touching.

Good news: Pages 167-187 “Looking for Miss Phillis”. The author explains the 6 years of research to gather the true facts about the poet.

Personal: I read the poems as a story…not concentrating on layout, word choice etc. Just read it like a story. I’m sure you will feel the injustice done to slaves even if not every poem is to your liking. But please…do read pages 167-187…so impressive the dedication H.F. Jeffers reveals…because she wanted Phillis’s life to be brought to our attention.
