Editorial Reviews


"The essay on W. S. Braithwaite's effective rivalry with Poetry's Harriett Monroe breaks new ground critically and is worth the price of the book... Richer by far than the requisite introductions in anthologies of black poetry, this worthy work is recommended for all undergraduate, graduate, and general poetry collections." -- Choice "A provisional first step in a process of reconfiguring the ways in which race and poetry are understood... [Contributors] succeed in revealing aspects of the complex engagements that connect these categories and their impact on the construction of both American and African American identity... Presents a dynamic survey of this area while providing an opportunity to collapse the narrow parameters and prefabricated notions of race that obscure its vast dimensions." -- Michael Antonucci, African American Review ADVANCE PRAISE "This volume cannot be ignored by anyone interested in the central questions of American literary scholarship: the tangled relationship between representation and reality and the engagement between marginalized poets and a panoply of (post)modernist traditions. These are incisive and provocative readings of poets whose work will be better known in a decade than it is today." -- Craig Hansen Werner, author of A Change Is Gonna Come: Music, Race, and the Soul of America
