The article critiques the poem "The Runaway Slave at Pilgrim's Point," by Elizabeth Barrett Browning, particularly focusing on the poet's views on slavery and oppression. It addresses the alleged ambivalent approach employed by Browning to sexual politics and the issue of slavery, discusses the poem's depiction of a female slave's subjective responses to oppression, and comments on the way the poet presented the nature of the feminine voice of resistance.
