No doubt it will be invaluable to scholars for reference. But for the general reader it is as fascinating as it is thought-provoking, presenting new perspectives on a historical period. With concise but dense introductions to each poet, backed up by detailed and learned annotations of the works, Wood leads the reader to the heart of political debate. The horrors, injustices and outrages of slavery are presented with an emotional force, all the more powerful because this is not hindsight: this is how it was seen at the time. * Rachel Campbell-Johnston, The Times (Weekend Review) *
