Under the Black Goddess tab and the History and Importance of Taste tab I have added a link to a draft of my essay arguing that the portrayal of the African female slave in Moretum is a self-portrait--ie that the poem was composed by an ancient black woman.

The issues implicated merely by treating that as a reasonable working hypothesis are enormous and cut across several disciplines.  I welcome comments and criticisms.
