Abstract

Abstract:

This short piece reads two of Phillis Wheatley's elegies to children to reflect on how they represent the dead as speaking rather than silent. It considers how the deceased's speech invokes different categories of the child, overlaying political and theological ideas about children's vulnerability and potential power.
