Central Virginia Community College Poetry Phillis Wheatley Literature Review

Question Description

I’m working on a writing question and need a sample draft to help me study.

Assignment Topic:
American Literature
1 source required



Please post a response to the Narrative of the Life of Olaudah Equiano and/or one or more of the poems by Phillis Wheatley by creating your own titled reply. Begin your post with a brief quoted passage from the text that you found especially important and explain why you think the passage is important for understanding the text. What might be most interesting is to find a point of comparison between either of these readings and some other reading from the course up to this point, or to find a point of comparison between Equiano and Wheatley. How, for example, did they regard their status as slaves in their writing? Can you find similarities in their views on slavery? Differences? Did their depictions (or lack thereof) surprise you in any way?
