"This volume brings together much of the known poetry and a selection of correspondence by an enormously talented but underappreciated poet of the Harlem Renaissance. Cousin of novelist Dorothy West and friend of Zora Neale Hurston, Helene Johnson (1906-1995) first gained literary prominence when James Weldon Johnson and Robert Frost selected three of her poems for prizes in a 1926 competition. During the late 1920s and early 1930s, her poetry appeared in various small magazines, such as the Saturday Evening Quill, Palms, Opportunity, and Harlem. In 1933 Johnson married, and two years later her last published poem, "Let Me Sing My Song," appeared in Challenge, the journal West had founded in an attempt to revive the spirit of the Harlem Renaissance."--Jacket

"The boat is tethered to the floor" : after the Harlem Renaissance by Helene Johnson( Book )
1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 1 library worldwide
"Recognized as an important young voice during the Harlem Renaissance, poet Helene Johnson was thought to have stopped writing some time after 1935 when she no longer published regularly in little magazines and periodicals. With this chapbook, an original manuscript of never-before-seen poems comes to light. Titled The Boat is Tethered to the Floor, the manuscript was evidently prepared for publication by Johnson herself. Written after her move downtown in the 1960s, these poems evoke themes of desire, friendship and aging, and provide an entirely new perspective on the literature of the era."--Publisher's Web site
