Aphrodite's daughters : three modernist poets of the Harlem Renaissance by Maureen Honey( Book )

3 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 203 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Aphrodite's Daughters brings to dramatic life three lyrical poets of the Harlem Renaissance whose work was among the earliest to display erotic passion as a source of empowerment for women. Angelina Weld Grimke, Gwendolyn B. Bennett, and Mae V. Cowdery are framed as bold pioneers whose verse opened new frontiers into women's sexuality at the dawn of a new century. Honey describes Grimke construction of a Sapphic deity inspiring acolytes to express forbidden same-sex desire while she outlines Bennett's exploration of sexual pleasure and pain and Cowdery's frank depiction of bisexual erotics. Grimke, Bennett, and Cowdery, she argues, embraced the lyric "I" as an expression of their modernity as artists, women, and participants in the New Negro Movement by highlighting the female body as a primary source of meaning, strength and transcendence. Honey juxtaposes each poet's creative work against her life writing, personal archive, and appearances in the black press. These new source materials dramatically illuminate verse that has largely appeared without its biographical context or modernist roots. Honey's highly nuanced bio-critical portraits of this unique cadre of New Negro poets reveal the fascinating complexity of their private lives, and she creates absorbing narratives for all three as they experienced sexual awakening in lesbian, heterosexual, and bisexual contexts. The vivid interplay between intimate, racial and artistic currents in their lives makes Aphrodite's Daughters a compelling story of three courageous women who dared to be sexually alive New Negro artists paving the way toward our own era."--

"To bend without breaking": American women's authorship and the New Woman, 1900-1935 by Amber Harris Leichner( )

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

This dissertation focuses on constructions of female authorship in selected prose narratives of four American women writers in the early twentieth century: Edith Wharton, Willa Cather, Zitkala-Ša, and Gertrude Schalk. Specifically, it examines portraits of women in pieces that appeared in national magazines from 1900-1935 that bracket these writers' careers and that reflect anxieties about their professional authorial identities complicated by gender and, in the case of Native American Zitkala-Ša (Yankton Sioux) and African American Gertrude Schalk, race as well. In a period characterized by fierce debates over the role of women in a dawning modern age, these writers participated in cultural fascination with the New Woman by fashioning narratives that spoke to that interest but that also reflected conflicts or issues in the writer's own life impacting her construction of literary authority in the public eye. I see a pattern of interest in the project of authorship across all four of these writers from the beginning of their careers until the end in my study of some of their first published pieces and some of their last. After a contextual overview, I move chronologically through my four writers. I focus first on Wharton's novella The Touchstone (1900) and its resonance in the story "Pomegranate Seed" (1931), tracing Wharton's efforts to construct herself as a professional writer entering a male-dominated public arena. I next explore Cather's "Office Wives" stories (1916-1919) and novel Lucy Gayheart (1935), connecting her anxious position as a professional female author with her critical attitudes toward the office and artistic production. Finally, I examine Zitkala-Sa's construction of literary authority and her paradoxical status as a New Woman through themes of domesticity and liberty in her autobiographical sketches (1900) and story "The Widespread Enigma Concerning Blue-Star Woman" (1921). I then identify prominent themes Schalk carries over from her late 1920's urban realism fiction to her 1930's romance formula fiction to reveal her constructions of gender, class, and race as at once fixed and fluid negotiations
The Multicultural Megalopolis: African-American Subjectivity and Identity in Contemporary Harlem Fiction by Shamika Ann Mitchell( )

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

The central aim of this study is to explore what I term urban ethnic subjectivity, that is, the subjectivity of ethnic urbanites. Of all the ethnic groups in the United States, the majority of African Americans had their origins in the rural countryside, but they later migrated to cities. Although urban living had its advantages, it was soon realized that it did not resolve the matters of institutional racism, discrimination and poverty. As a result, the subjectivity of urban African Americans is uniquely influenced by their cosmopolitan identities. New York City's ethnic community of Harlem continues to function as the geographic center of African-American urban culture. This study examines how six post-World War II novels --Sapphire's PUSH, Julian Mayfield's The Hit, Brian Keith Jackson's The Queen of Harlem, Charles Wright's The Wig, Toni Morrison's Jazz and Louise Meriwether's Daddy Was a Number Runner-- address the issues of race, identity, individuality and community within Harlem and the megalopolis of New York City. Further, this study investigates concepts of urbanism, blackness, ethnicity and subjectivity as they relate to the characters' identities and self-perceptions. This study is original in its attempt to ascertain the connections between megalopolitan urbanism, ethnicity, subjectivity and African-American fiction

Reinventing epistolarity: Contemporary Africana women's fiction, citizenship, and human rights by Carrie J Walker( )

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

My dissertation project calls attention to the renewed popularity of the epistolary novel among Africana contemporary women writers. This work investigates why, since the late nineteen-seventies, there has been a resurgence of this classic form among women writers across the Black Atlantic. The adoption of this genre among women writers in post-colonial contexts is especially significant because the classic epistolary novel was a medium that often endorsed notions of female submission and imperialist ambition. At the same time, the epistolary tradition connotes a revolutionary history. With this idea in mind, I argue that an examination of how contemporary women revise the epistolary novel offers a crucial perspective regarding the struggles of women throughout various geographic locations and social strata in relation to nation, citizenship, and selfhood. This project focuses on how Sindiwe Magona, Nozipo Maraire, and Paulette Ramsay "reinvent epistolarity," using the epistolary genre to make interventions in the public sphere by depicting Africana women's experiences of education, marriage, inheritance, and health. I argue that, by employing the "private" quality of the information exchanged in personal letters, writers invite readers to witness situations to which they would not typically be privy and enhance the intimacy between the reader and the characters. I contend that, though these intimate exchanges, authors transform personal experiences into public discourse and, in doing so, expose the artificial, arbitrary nature of the division between the public and private spheres. Just as these writers use this form to challenge binary categories, I demonstrate the parallels between these fictional portrayals and international policy trends affecting Africana women, noting how literature and policy work together to promote justice and equality. My analysis shows that these authors take a complex stand in relation to contemporary human rights doctrines. This project not only addresses how authors endorse international human rights policies, but also it highlights how writers challenge universal discourses surrounding gender equity. The frequency with which these issues resurface among epistolary novels offers evidence that, despite increased access to civil and political rights, social and cultural rights still remain a fiction, especially for women and girls
