Paul Laurence Dunbar - Literary Analysis

           Welcome to the Paul Laurence Dunbar Literary Analysis website. This is not an official website, rather it is an amateur website made by amateur literary analysts. In this site you will find background information on the African-American poet Paul Laurence Dunbar. You will also find a small section of the national happenings of the times when PL (Paul Laurence) was living. We have selected a poem of PL's to analyze for our literature class. You will find the poem itself, and our class work for this poetry project.
