Description
This book, which will appeal to cultural historians, literary theorists, and lay readers, brings together the best of his work. Barkdale's essays deal with autobiography, comedy, poetry, and the Harlem Renaissance, as well as with individual writers including James Baldwin, Claude McKay, Langston Hughes, Martin Luther King Jr., Toni Morrison Margaret Walker, and Phillis Wheatley. Originally trained as a Victorian scholar, Barksdale continues to reassess the status of American literary history in light of the most sophisticated and experimental inquiries now being conducted. His very life and scholarship attest to the growth and development of the critical mind of black America.
