This Investigation aims to study the trend away from the religious spirit in the poetry of the early American Negro towards a definite naturalistic attitude in the poetry of the contemporary American Negro . In the preparation of the following pages the writer has restricted himself to a consideration of American Negro poets whose work, beginning in 1761 and extending to the present time, appear in accepted American Negro anthologies or that have been published in the foremost periodicals of the country, and those who were fortunate enough to have their verses published in volume form.
