it was ok

I had a hard time with this one. I loved that the author included so much of Dunbar's poetry. I really enjoyed getting to read them because I was not familiar with his poetry before reading this book. Overall, though, I thought the author was trying to hard to make the narrator come off as folksy and it was distracting at times. It also made the narration feel disjointed. I would be interested to read more about Paul Laurence Dunbar, though.
