Early Uncollected Poetry (1916-1922)
There is some overlap between the Harlem Shadows poems and the poems in this collection, though the differences in theme are sometimes striking.
Use the Visualization/Tags tool on the upper left to visualize relationships between the poems included in this collection and the poems McKay chose to include in Harlem Shadows.
My thanks to Chris Forster for substantial help in tracking down original versions of some of these poems (especially The Messenger). My thanks also to the library at Temple University for allowing me to access and scan a limited number of pages from Workers Dreadnought on Microfilm.
