Her work, which includes elegies and poems on various subjects, reflects her classical education and her unique perspective on themes such as morality, religion, and identity. Despite her status as a slave, her eloquence and erudition earned her recognition among the intellectuals of her time, and her writing continues to be celebrated for its artistry and its contribution to the understanding of the African American experience during the colonial period.
