The uncalled : a novel by Paul Laurence Dunbar( Book )
77 editions published between 1898 and 2012 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,339 libraries worldwide
Published first in 1898, African American poet Dunbar's novel Uncalled has been termed "a sentimental tale about white people." The story is set in Dexter, Ohio and the plot is not dependent on the race of the characters. One source notes: "The Uncalled is the story of the childhood and young manhood of Frederick Brent. The story opens with the death of his mother in circumstances of poverty. She has been abandoned by her drunken husband and sells her soul to the devil. The plot thickens when the question arises as to who will take care of young Frederick." Raised by Hester Prime, Frederick rebels against her desire to make him a minister. He feels, as it were, "uncalled."-- www.answers.com and www.ez-essays.com

From the Foreword: Happy Hollow; are you wondering where it is? Wherever Negroes colonize in the cities or villages, north or south, wherever the hod carrier, the porter, and the waiter are the society men of the town; wherever the picnic and the excursion are the chief summer diversion, and the revival the winter time of repentance, wherever the cheese cloth veil obtains at a wedding, and the little white hearse goes by with black mourners in the one carriage behind, there-there-is Happy Hollow. Wherever laughter and tears rub elbows day by day, and the spirit of labour and laziness shake hands, there-there-is Happy Hollow, and of some of it may the following pages show the heart
The complete stories of Paul Laurence Dunbar by Paul Laurence Dunbar( Book )
13 editions published between 2005 and 2009 in English and held by 874 libraries worldwide
From the Publisher: The son of former slaves, Paul Laurence Dunbar was one of the most prominent and publicly recognized figures in American literature at the turn of the twentieth century. Thirty-three years old at the time of his death in 1906, he had published four novels, four collections of short stories, and fourteen books of poetry, not to mention numerous songs, plays, and essays in newspapers and magazines around the world. In the century following his death, Dunbar slipped into relative obscurity, remembered mainly for his dialect poetry or as a footnote to other more canonical figures from the period. The Complete Stories of Paul Laurence Dunbar showcases his gifts as a writer of short fiction and provides key insights into the tensions and themes of Dunbar's literary achievement. Through examining the 104 stories written by Dunbar between 1890 and 1905, readers will be able to better understand Dunbar's specific attempts to maintain his artistic integrity while struggling with America's racist stereotypes. His work interrogated the color-line that informed American life and dictated his role as an artist in American letters. Editors Gene Jarrett and Thomas Morgan identify major themes and implications in Dunbar's work. Available in one convenient, comprehensive, and definitive volume for the first time, The Complete Stories of Paul Laurence Dunbar illustrates the complexity of his literary life and legacy
