The anthology of rap by Adam Bradley( Book )
8 editions published between 2010 and 2011 in English and held by 1,574 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( )
8 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 1,292 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."--BOOK JACKET

Contentious Figuration: Poetic Language in Plath, Stevens, and Dickinson by Shu-Ching Wu( )
1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
The discussion of metonymy in both Plath's and Stevens' poetry helps clarify that the lyric self in Dickinson's poetry cannot be simply a mediated social existence because the lyric self is also mediated by the fictional other(s) within a text. Metonymy creates possibilities and imposes limits at the same time in a poetic narrative, where the self is mediated by the other and the other is an imagined construct by the self, where the spontaneous dialectical relation between the self and the other turns into a figurative possibility in poetry
