this man's poems are lovely. i've never been a huge fan of poetry myself, but he was one of the poets i had to write about for an assignment. he is most definitely an exception. i enjoy the sorrowful feeling a lot of his poems emit.

I picked interest on you after going through your short profile and demand it necessary to write you immediately. I have something very vital to disclose to you, but I found it difficult to express myself here, since it's a public site.Could you please get back to me (email@example.com) for the full details. Have a nice day, Nwoomi Akouvi.

From the book Wisdom & Whimsy: The Poetry of Roxanne Head (Lulu.com,2006) Paul Laurance Dunbar. Besides myself, he is my favorite poet. The great Negro poet, who was active in the early 1900s and died young of tuberculosis? No. Langston Hughes was a great Negro poet. Paul Dunbar is a great poet, period. The fact that his skin was black is irrelevant.

I live on his street (N.P.L. DUNBAR ST., DAYTON, OH.,) and i am in sheer awe, as a poet myself, of the brilliance and talent of this precious man who lived 33 yrs. What a talent, and his final home is so beautiful! r.i.p. Paul.

I remember reading Paul Dunbar in high school and in a college poetry course. His words are not only profound, but they also read like music to the ears. He speaks from the heart about feelings that are not only evoking the black experience, but life experience. Try reading his poems aloud especially those in dialect. It's worth the extra effort.

Paul Laurence Dunbar is the greatest example of what was wrong with Thomas Jefferson's views that blacks had no sense of poetry. Sure, he wrote in the sty; e of the most noted white poets of the day. But there are powerful metaphors in his words that are sometimes sad. Mostly, though he proved that education would render Jefferson wrong. His mother, while a slave, took in as much as she could from the poetry readings in the house where she worked. Did T.J., have such events? Paul learned the power of education from her. The other idiots who left there comments here know nothing about history and sound as if they think Dunbar was writing this stuff today, like a rap artist. ben
