Conversations with Ralph Ellison by Ralph Ellison( Book )

6 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 554 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Having published only one novel, Ralph Ellison gained and retained a reputation as one of America's premier authors. Though urged by his admirers and by critics to write more, at the time of his death in 1994 Ellison's renown rested upon a novel published in the 1950s. He remained at the peak of his eminence, acclaimed principally for this single work. But this astonishing book was Invisible Man, one of the cornerstones of modern American literature. In these interviews the author of this masterpiece proves himself intellectually vigorous, witty, and sometimes combative. These conversations about himself and about literature show him to be strongly independent, whether his remarks consider race, art, writing, or culture
The collected writings of Wallace Thurman : a Harlem Renaissance reader by Wallace Thurman( Book )

10 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 523 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Postcolonial theory and the United States : race, ethnicity, and literature by Peter Schmidt( Book )

12 editions published in 2000 in English and Undetermined and held by 513 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

At the beginning of the twenty-first century the world may be in a "transnational moment." Indeed, we are increasingly aware of the ways in which local and national narratives, in literature and elsewhere, cannot be conceived apart from a radically new sense of shared human histories and global interdependence. To think transnationally about literature, history, and culture requires a study of the evolution of hybrid identities within nation-states and diasporic identities across national boundaries. This book collects nineteen essays written in the 1990s. Displaying both historical depth and theoretical finesse as they attempt close and lively readings, they are accessible, well-focused resources for college and university students and their teachers. Included are more than one discussion of each literary tradition associated with major racial and ethnic communities. Such a gathering of diverse, complementary, and often competing viewpoints provides a good introduction to the cultural differences and commonalities that comprise the United States today. -- from back cover

Richard Wright in a post-racial imaginary( Book )

4 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In African American fiction, Richard Wright was one of the most significant and influential authors of the twentieth century. This book analyses Wright's work in relation to contemporary racial and social issues, bringing voices of established and emergent Wright scholars into dialogue with each other. The essays in this volume show how Wright's best work asks central questions about national alienation as well as about international belonging and the trans-national gaze. Race is here assumed as a superimposed category, rather than a biological reality, in keeping with recent trends in African-American studies. Wright's fiction and almost all of his non-fiction lift beyond the mainstays of African-American culture to explore the potentialities and limits of black trans-nationalism. Wright's trans-native status, his perpetual "outsidedness" mixed with the "essential humanness" of his activist and literary efforts are at the core of the innovative approaches to his work included here.--
The Muse in Bronzeville : African American Creative Expression in Chicago, 1932-1950 by Robert Bone( )

1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Muse in Bronzeville, a dynamic reappraisal of a neglected period in African American cultural history, is the first comprehensive critical study of the creative awakening that occurred on Chicago's South Side from the early 1930s to the cold war. Coming of age during the hard Depression years and in the wake of the Great Migration, this generation of Black creative artists produced works of literature, music, and visual art fully comparable in distinction and scope to the achievements of the Harlem Renaissance. This highly informative and accessible work, enhanced with reproducti
