Pressestimmen

"The most definitive collection of anti-slavery sentiment in verse yet compiled, essential reading for historians and literary critics alike... A major contribution." Henry Louis Gates, Jr., Harvard University; "An astounding literary and editorial achievement." David Blight, Yale University; "Comprehensive... The illuminating introduction sets forth, economically and helpfully, the larger historical context (material, religious, legal, political) that gave rise to these poems... Basker's list of bibliographical sources makes the book of permanent scholarly value.... The historical interest of Amazing Grace is exceptional." Helen Vendler, New Republic"
