Comments Shadowed Dreams: Women's Poetry of the Harlem Renaissance

  • Bridget Thrash

    as a poet I was able to learn more about past techniques and common themes. as a black woman I felt as if I was walking with the women of my history. this collection was well put together and I met some new favorite powers through this book.


  • Kelly

    Beautiful! I found poems to use in the classroom, poems to inspire my own poetry, and poems that just speak to me. I've never been one to sit down and read a book of poetry, but every poem in this book needed to be read.


  • courtney

    excellent and expansive collection of women's poetry from the harlem renaissance. the introduction helps understand why so many of these voices were lost for so long and the subtle ways in which they challenged the mainstream.
