The Collected Poems of Jean Toomer

Robert B. Jones

University of North Carolina Press

This part of the book includes the poetry by Toomer that derived from an espousal of Quaker religious philosophy. The poetry canon produced here constitutes a dramatization of consciousness, a veritable phenomenology of the spirit. This phase came after Toomer moved to Bucks County, Pennsylvania in 1938 where he was almost immediately attracted to Quakerism.

Keywords:   Jean Toomer, Quakerism, dramatization of consciousness, phenomenology, Bucks Country, poetry
