The Afro-Modernist Epic and Literary History : Tolson, Hughes, Baraka Hardback

Part of the Modern and Contemporary Poetry and Poetics series

Description

Analyzing the poets Melvin B. Tolson, Langston Hughes, and Amiri Baraka, this study charts the Afro-Modernist epic.

Within the context of Classical epic traditions, early 20th-century American modernist long poems, and the griot traditions of West Africa, Schultz reveals diasporic consciousness in the representation of African American identities.
