The Life of Una Marson, 1905-1965
Manchester University Press, Apr 15, 1998 - Biography & Autobiography - 242 pages
Una Marson is recognized today as the first major woman poet of the Caribbean and as a significant forerunner of contemporary black writers; her story throws light on the problems facing politicized black artists. In challenging definitions of "race" and "gender" in her political and creative work, she forged a valiant path for later black feminists. Her enormous social and cultural contribution to the Caribbean and Britain have, until now, remained hidden in archives and memoirs around the world.
