Available From More sellersView all copies of this book
A Fine tight copy in Near Fine unclipped dust jacket with a touch of fading to the spine. Charles Johnson approaches contemporary black literature through the lens of phenomenology. Drawing on such philosophers as Heidegger, Husserl, Satre, and Dufrenne, Johnson addresses the esthetic and epistemological questions surrounding the black experience as expressed by African American authors. In exploring the works of Wright, Toomer, Bradley, and many more, Being & Race enlarges our vision of what fictionís purpose is and how it arises from our common experiences. Johnson assesses the impact and inlfuence of Black writers since the 70s including works by: Ismael Reed, Ernest Gaines, John Wideman and Ntozake Shange, Alice Walker, Toni Morrison and Gloria Naylor.
