As the most recent W.E.B.Dubois lecturer at Harvard this past year, 2014,(an endowed lecture series focused on current and perennial issues of AfricanAmerican and diasporic, or 'world studies' of the African diaspora during the slavery period) Dr. Hortense Spillers may reasonably be said to be the most imminent woman scholar in the field. (like any such moniker, it can be disputed - is Harvard, or Yale or Berkeley, 'really THE BEST', but as her Canadian colleague, similarly situated in that arena, once mentioned to me, she is a 'Brand name,' in the field, thus this early work of hers, in which the new categories of race, sex or gender were first becoming salient in that broadest of fields that of English literary studies has a great interest and should be looked at by any serious student of literary studies in America and the world over the last few decades. By way of admitting my bias, she and I went to jail together in 1964 in Memphis, and have trod a few paths since, but this is irrelevant in some profound way to the brilliance, diversity and depth of her work in so many areas over such a long period of time. Check it out the library, buy it here, it is one of those classic collection reflecting how and when the winds of changes shift, to quote Bob Dylan, who, like Spillers, has lit up our literary universe over the past decades since the sixties, and bless be, both are still with us, working and producing. A MUST HAVE BOOK,Howard Romaine
