Description: Situated at the intersection of poetry, race, and politics, Reading Race in American Poetry addresses issues of historical as well as current interest. The collection takes a fresh look at influential and overlooked figures who have used their work and their lives to challenge and critique cultural formulations of race. These include William S. Braithwaite, Gwendolyn Brooks, Robert Duncan, James Weldon Johnson, Bob Kaufman, Claude McKay, Harriet Monroe, Melvin B. Tolson, and Jay Wright.

Contributors address questions of identity and national belonging for black Americans, white use of African and African-American materials, and the conspicuous absence of black poets from anthologies supporting "multicultural" curricula. Other topics include the evolution of racial archetypes, the pressures of race on poetic form, and the racialized cultural work of modernist poets such as Ezra Pound, Gertrude Stem, Wallace Stevens, and William Carlos Williams.
