The anthology of rap by Adam Bradley( Book )

12 editions published between 2010 and 2011 in English and held by 1,334 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Rap has emerged as one of the most influential cultural forces of our time. In this work, the editors demonstrate that rap is also a wide reaching and vital poetic tradition born of beats and rhymes. This pioneering anthology brings together more than three hundred lyrics written over thirty years, from the "old school" to the "golden age" to the present day. Rather than aim for encyclopedic coverage, the editors render through examples the richness and diversity of rap's poetic tradition. They feature classic lyrics that helped define the genre as well as lesser known gems. Both a fan's guide and a resource for the uninitiated, this book showcases the inventiveness and vitality of rap's lyrical art, also providing an overview of rap poetics and the forces that shaped each period in rap's historical development.--From publisher description

Ralph Ellison in progress : from Invisible man to Three days before the shooting-- by Adam Bradley( Book )

8 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 600 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Ralph Ellison may be the preeminent African-American author of the twentieth century, though he published only one novel, 1952's Invisible Man. He enjoyed a highly successful career in American letters, publishing two collections of essays, teaching at several colleges and universities, and writing dozens of pieces for newspapers and magazines, yet Ellison never published the second novel he had been composing for more than forty years. A 1967 fire that destroyed some of his work accounts for only a small part of the novel's fate; the rest is revealed in the thousands of pages he left behind after his death in 1994, many of them collected for the first time in the recently published Three Days Before the Shooting." "Ralph Ellison in Progress is the first book to survey the expansive geography of Ellison's unfinished novel while re-imaging the more familiar, but often misunderstood, territory of Invisible Man. It works from the premise that understanding Ellison's process of composition imparts important truths not only about the author himself but about race, writing, and American identity. Drawing on thousands of pages of Ellison's journals, typescripts, computer drafts, and handwritten notes, many never before studied, Adam Bradley argues for a shift in scholarly emphasis that moves a greater share of the weight of Ellison's literary legacy to the last forty years of his life and to the novel he left forever in progress."--Jacket

Contentious Figuration: Poetic Language in Plath, Stevens, and Dickinson by Zhiwang Wu( )

1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This thesis explores how metonymy functions as a different figurative possibility in Sylvia Plath' poetry and how metonymy as a transformative process of figuration relates to Wallace Stevens' poetic thinking on the relation between imagination and reality, and ends with a special focus on Emily Dickinson's lyric self. The discussion of Plath's and Stevens' figurative language is a gradual exploration of what role metonymy can play as a significant form of figuration in their works and how metonymy can contribute to discovering an internal force in their writings. It is with further understanding of these two poets' metonymic figuration that I will interrogate the relation between lyric poetry and its external contexts in Dickinson's poetry with an emphasis on a poem's internal force and with full awareness of how such a force can emerge through metonymy within a text
