Question ID: 371547
In a novel that I am reading, the following quotation appears: ??Unbind, unbind my galling chain, [/] And set, oh! set me free: [/] No longer say that I?ll disdain [/] The gift of liberty.? This is probably a stanza from an abolitionist anthology, but its source has not been identified. I would like the name of the author, and the name of poem or work from which it comes. If you can give line references (with stanza or act number, etc) and the page number to a an edition with the details of the edition, including editor, publisher, place of publication and date, that would be very helpful.

It appears as an unsourced quote in Clotel; or The President's Daughter by William Wells Brown, Chapter XI The Parson Poet - 1853. He may have been quoting a hymn or poem. "Unbind, unbind my galling chain, And set, oh! set me free: No longer say that I'll disdain The gift of liberty." http://www.knowledgerush.com/paginated/clotl10a/clotl10a_s12_p1_pages.html http://www.knowledgerush.com/kr/jsp/db/author.jsp?authorId=229&authorName=William+Wells+Brown answerfinder-ga Google Answers Researcher
