Author Biography - Phillis Wheatley

Phyllis Wheatley (1753-1784) was taken from western Africa to Boston by the slave ship Phillis in 1761. Recognising her talent, her owners gave her an education and Wheatley became an internationally known poet before the age of twenty, the first published woman of African descent. Vincent Carretta is professor of English at the University of Maryland, College Park. He has edited the Penguin Classics editions of the work of Olaudah Equiano, Igniatius Sancho and Ottobah Cugoano.
