    This book is about so much more than the "Tragic Courtship and Marriage of Paul Laurence Dunbar and Alice Ruth Moore." It is a deep look/analysis of the psychological (warfare) aspects of living in a time of constructed racism and its resulting oppression upon people of African descent. We are given the impact resulting from the internalization of those racist ideals, violence (the learned behavior) where the enslaved were brutally beaten daily through the scope of Paul's & Ruth lives/daily [...]

    I picked this up because the cover caught my eye, and boy, am I glad I did. This is a heavy book despite being slim, as it deals with racism, sexism, spousal abuse, sexual assault and other fun topics, so try to have something light and fluffy lined up. This book might sound like anti-fun, but seriously, I learned a lot about African-American life post-civil war, Victorian courtship rituals and there's some truly fabulous bits of Paul Laurence Dunbar's poetry in it.

    I was of two minds about this book. My scholarly side was frequently bothered by the unsubstantiated leaps of logic Alexander took in describing the Dunbars' relationship. My readerly side, however, was quite compelled throughout. This book reads like a narrative--I found myself very caught up in the story of the Dunbars. However, it became frustrating because I kept finding myself interrupting the narrative to ask, "How do we know this?" And the book too often didn't offer an answer to that que [...]

    This was a bum steer from the New York Times. The story of literary figures Paul Laurence Dunbar and Alice Ruth Moore is interesting, but it gets lost here. Eleanor Alexander provides so much context about courtship, marriage, racism, sexism and other social dynamics that she loses the thread of her story about two people. Her research is meticulous. Possession of information doesn't warrant its inclusion, however. It might make a good magazine article. There isn't enough information about the c [...]
