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
