LibriVox volunteers bring you 20 recordings of The Pool by Paul Laurence Dunbar (1872-1906).
This was the Weekly Poetry project for May 20th to May 27th, 2012.
Paul Laurence Dunbar (June 27, 1872 – February 9, 1906) was an African American poet, novelist, and playwright of the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Much of his popular work in his lifetime used a Negro dialect, which helped him become one of the first nationally-accepted African American writers. Much of his writing, however, does not use dialect; these more traditional poems have become of greater interest to scholars.
