Most widely held works by Margaretta Matilda Odell
Memoir and poems of Phillis Wheatley, a native African and a slave. Also, Poems by a slave by Phillis Wheatley( Book )
13 editions published between 1833 and 2009 in English and held by 147 libraries worldwide
Margaretta Matilda Odell combines her biography of Phillis Wheatley with Wheatley's poems and those by George Moses Horton to draw parallels between the two poets regarding their style and content. Wheatley and Horton are two of only three African American€writers to publish literary works while still enslaved, the third being Jupiter Hammon. Scholars have been struck by many insights by applying literary theory to compare the€three works because of Odell choice to bring these texts and poets together in one publication. Some theories scholars have found most interesting to apply to this text are Feminist, American Studies and€African American Studies

The poems of Phillis Wheatley : with letters and a biographical note by Phillis Wheatley( Book )
1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 1 library worldwide
Born in Africa in 1753, Phillis Wheatley was kidnapped at the age of seven and sold into slavery. At nineteen, she became the first black American poet to publish a book, Poems on Various Subjects: Religious and Moral, on which this volume is based. Wheatley's poetry created a sensation throughout the English-speaking world, and the young poet read her work in aristocratic drawing rooms on both sides of the Atlantic. The London Chronicle went so far as to declare her'perhaps one of the greatest instances of pure, unassisted genius that the world ever produced.'Wheatley's elegies and odes offer fascinating glimpses into the origins of African-American literary traditions. Most of the poems express the effects of her religious and classical New England education, consisting of elegies for the departed and odes to Christian salvation. This edition of Wheatley's historic works includes letters and a biographical note written by one of the poet's descendants. Includes a selection from the Common Core State Standards Initiative:'On Being Brought from Africa to America.'
