KIRKUS REVIEW

Placing Dunbar's achievements in historical perspective and commenting on his individual works, Gayle deals honestly with the poor, black, insulted and sometimes despairing poet. Drawing heavily on previous biographies and reminiscences, he includes some wordy and inessential secondary information but far more revealing anecdotes, plus a supportive sampling of the poems.
