Hi, need to submit a 1000 words essay on the topic Locate and compare what it means to be a slave in Phillis Wheatley’s poetry and Philip Freneau’s poetry.

This makes clear the importance of Phillis as the first African American writer. Philip Freneau was a friend of Jefferson, and he is also known the “Father of American Literature”. What slavery means in their poems is the focus of this paper.

Fortunately, when Phillis Wheatley was sold in the American slave market,

she was bought by a Bostonian named Wheatley, who was kind towards the girl. She was only seven years old, with a fragile body. She could not live long. She was always ill. She learned English within a short period. She was also an ardent Christian. She being the first slave woman to become a poet, the readers naturally had expectations about her. They expected her personal emotions to run through the poems. But she wrote poems mainly addressed to the white people.

The only recognition is that she proved that a slave is also a human being capable of being intelligent and becoming a great poet, a genius.

She even pleaded God to save all Negroes similarly. In her poem, “On being Brought from Africa to America”, she says “It was mercy brought me from my pagan land”. The word “mercy” is a confusing word. Mercy to God for whatever happened to her in her life could be the
