Summary
Race and Time urges our attention to women's poetry in considering the cultural history of race. Building on close readings of well known and less familiar poets-including Elizabeth Margaret Chandler, Sarah Louisa Forten, Hannah Flagg Gould, Frances Ellen Watkins Harper, Sarah Piatt, Mary Eliza Tucker Lambert, Sarah Josepha Hale, Eliza Follen, and Mary Mapes Dodge-Gray traces tensions in women's literary culture from the era of abolitionism to the rise of the Plantation tradition. She devotes a chapter to children's verse, arguing that racial stereotypes work as "nonsense" that masks conflicts
