The Ohio State University Press, Did readers of the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries read, recite, and hear American dialect poetry the same way we do today? Nurhussein offers surprisingly novel answers to this question in her formalist study, reconstructing the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries through astute textual analyses of the works of the well- and lesser-known dialect poets Bret Harte, James Whitcomb Riley, Paul Laurence Dunbar, Frances Ellen Watkins Harper, Maggie Pogue Johnson, Langston Hughes, and Claude McKay, along with a range of print culture, including but not limited to editorials, book reviews, newspaper advertisements, personal letters, and drawings.
