Amiable with big teeth : a novel of the love affair between the communists and the poor black sheep of Harlem by Claude McKay( Book )

2 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 144 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A monumental literary event: the newly discovered final novel by seminal Harlem Renaissance writer Claude McKay, a rich and multilayered portrayal of life in 1930s Harlem and a historical protest for black freedom The unexpected discovery in 2009 of a completed manuscript of Claude McKay's final novel was celebrated as one of the most significant literary events in recent years. Building on the already extraordinary legacy of McKay's life and work, this colorful, dramatic novel centers on the efforts by Harlem intelligentsia to organize support for the liberation of fascist-controlled Ethiopia, a crucial but largely forgotten event in American history. At once a penetrating satire of political machinations in Depression-era Harlem and a far-reaching story of global intrigue and romance, Amiable with Big Teeth plunges into the concerns, anxieties, hopes, and dreams of African-Americans at a moment of crisis for the soul of Harlem--and America.

Ten years after his father is murdered by a brutal dictator, Englishman Charles Gould arrives in Costaguana to reopen the family silver mine. But instead of ushering in a shining era of prosperity and progress, the return of the silver engenders a new cycle of violence as Costaguana erupts in civil war, initiated by rival warlords determined to seize the mine and its riches. In desperation, Gould turns to the only man who can save the mine's treasure&#151;Nostromo, the incorruptible head of the local dockworkers, who protects the silver from rebel forces by taking it out to sea. But disaster strikes, burdening Nostromo with a terrible secret that forever alters the fate of everyone involved with the mine. A stunning monument to futility, Nostromo reveals how honor, idealism, and loyalty are inadequate defenses against the inexorable assault of corruption and evil. <P style=MARGIN: 0in 0in 0pt>Brent Edwards is an Associate Professor in the English Department at Rutgers University.

Epistrophies : jazz and the literary imagination by Brent Hayes Edwards( Book )

1 edition published in 2017 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From its inception, African American literature has taken shape in relation to music. Black writing is informed by the conviction that music is the privileged archival medium of black communal experience--that music provides a "tone parallel" (in Duke Ellington's phrase) to African American history. Throughout the tradition, this conviction has compelled African American writers to discover models of literary form in the medium of musical performance. Black music, in other words, has long been taken to suggest strategies for writerly experimentation, for pressing against and extending the boundaries of articulate expression. Epistrophies seeks to come to terms with this foundational interface by considering the full variety of "jazz literature" -- both writing informed by the music and the surprisingly large body of writing by jazz musicians themselves.--
