Jazz Internationalism : Literary Afro-Modernism and the Cultural Politics of Black Music, Paperback / softback Book

Jazz Internationalism : Literary Afro-Modernism and the Cultural Politics of Black Music Paperback / softback

Part of the New Black Studies Series series

Description

Jazz Internationalism offers a bold reconsideration of jazz's influence in Afro-modernist literature.

Ranging from the New Negro Renaissance through the social movements of the 1960s, John Lowney articulates nothing less than a new history of Afro-modernist jazz writing.

Jazz added immeasurably to the vocabulary for discussing radical internationalism and black modernism in leftist African American literature.

Lowney examines how Claude McKay, Ann Petry, Langston Hughes, and many other writers employed jazz as both a critical social discourse and mode of artistic expression to explore the possibilities "and challenges "of black internationalism.

The result is an expansive understanding of jazz writing sure to spur new debates.
