About the Event

When Phillis Wheatley traveled to London in 1773 to oversee the publication of Poems on Various Subjects, Religious and Moral, she acquired several valuable books, including Milton’s Paradise Lost, Pope’s Complete Works, and Don Quixote. When she returned to Boston as a published author, she was manumitted from slavery and began selling her own book in New England. This talk considers Wheatley’s intimate relationship to books a poet and reader and ties book ownership and authorship to her sense of what it meant to be free.
