The anthology of rap by Adam Bradley( Book )

14 editions published between 2010 and 2016 in English and held by 1,359 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 )

11 editions published between 2010 and 2012 in English and held by 590 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

Ooman's Wuk: Gullah Womanism in the Creative Works of African American Women by Judith Lynn Strathearn( )

1 edition published in 2017 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Ooman's Wuk: Gullah Womanism in the Creative Works of African American Women" investigates Gullah history and culture as a usable past for modern African American female artists. This project explores the history of rice production and the vital but under-discussed role of women that led to the African retentions still at work on the Sea Islands of South Carolina and Georgia. By exploring the often disavowed female roles, this dissertation argues that once acknowledged, the Gullah woman's role as 'keepa a da kulca' formulates a Gullah womanism or a form of cultural and community activism that is found in the daily lives of the female descendants of Africans living on the Sea Islands. I argue that the novels of Gloria Naylor and Paule Marshall as well as Julie Dash's film Daughters of the Dust reveal the ways in which African American women utilize Gullah cultural practices, folklore, and language and through their creative productions reshape and extend women-centered discourses
Beyond the Blues: Music, Gender, and Black Modernisms by Alexander William Corey( )

1 edition published in 2017 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Beyond the Blues" explains how the gendering of sound led into and emerged out of the problem of the color line in twentieth-century American musical culture. Studying figures such as James Weldon Johnson, Ralph Ellison, Philippa Schuyler, and John Coltrane, this dissertation challenges today’s dominant vision of a black modernism that coheres primarily around the explanatory power of the blues. These artists remind us that the hopeful melancholy of Langston Hughes’s “The Weary Blues” is but one of many black modernist moods. Beyond the blues, African Americans listened across the color line and into the past, taking up musical traditions that were sonically vibrant if also tied up in Jim Crow racism. This dissertation teases out the now-forgotten gendered connotations of this repertoire, from fictional depictions of classical piano performance to annotations on Beethoven scores, from literary invocations of Louis Armstrong to improvisations on The Sound of Music. Shrouded behind more familiar racial implications, undertones of masculinity and femininity resounded through genres such as the nocturne, the sonata, the blues song, and the showtune. "Beyond the Blues" argues that concerns about a permeable boundary between masculine and feminine spheres become audible as a motivating force, not a secondary effect, in the organization of American musical culture along racial lines

Contentious Figuration: Poetic Language in Plath, Stevens, and Dickinson by Shu-Ching Wu( )

1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries 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
Teach Me Your Word, O Lord: Religious Discourse, Literary Congregations, and the Ineffable in American Fiction by Randall Allan Fullington( )

1 edition published in 2016 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Teach Me Your Word" examines Protestant discourse in twentieth- and twenty-first-century American novels, comics, and television. It argues that artists employ shifting representations of the ineffable not to establish a Protestant nation but to critique and reform injustice in America. Including texts from William Faulkner, Flannery O'Connor, Alice Walker, Ralph Ellison, David Simon, Garth Ennis & Steve Dillon, Scott Cheshire, and Marilynne Robinson, "Teach Me Your Word" analyzes the sermonic rhetoric of literary pastors and pastor figures to identify the mediated, negotiated, and transformative effect of religious discourse within American literary communities. Furthermore, the gospel message preached within these texts always redirects so that it speaks to the reading/viewing audiences as well as the fictional characters. Protestant discourses in American literature need to be considered as both religious and sociopolitical discourses that work to align America's practices more closely with its stated ideals. To do so in a non-oppressive, non-discriminatory manner, these texts resist concretizing the ineffable source that powers religious discourse so as to generate evolving conceptions of both religious and American ways of living in the world

Poetry of Pop, the by Adam Bradley( Book )

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

Encompassing a century of recorded music, this pathbreaking book reveals the poetic artistry of popular songs. Pop songs are music first. They also comprise the most widely disseminated poetic expression of our time. Adam Bradley traces the song lyric across musical genres from early twentieth-century Delta blues to mid-century rock 'n' roll to today's hits. George and Ira Gershwin's Fascinating Rhythm. The Rolling Stones' (I Can't Get No) Satisfaction. Rihanna's Diamonds. These songs are united in their exacting attention to the craft of language and sound. Bradley shows that pop music is a poetry that must be heard more than read, uncovering the rhythms, rhymes, and metaphors expressed in the singing voice. At once a work of musical interpretation, cultural analysis, literary criticism, and personal storytelling, this book illustrates how words and music come together to produce compelling poetry, often where we least expect it
