24 [African American Poetry]
A History of African American Poetry / Ramey, Lauri
350 p. Cambridge UP, 2019:04.
ISBN:9781107035478 \16,798
Covering a wide range of styles and forms, canonical figures like Phillis Wheatley

(1753-1784) and Paul Laurence Dunbar (1872-1906) are brought side by side with

lesser known poets who explored diverse paths of bold originality. Calling for a

revised and and expanded canon, Ramey shows how some poems were

suppressed while others were lauded, while also examining the role of music,

women, innovation, and art as political action in African American poetry.

Counterfeit Culture: Truth and Authenticity in the American

Prose Epic Since 1960 / Turner, Rob (Cambridge Studies in American Literature) 260 p. Cambridge UP, 2019:08.
ISBN:9781108428484 \16,798
In works by authors such as Pynchon, Gaddis and Burroughs, the contemporary

turn away from truth and authenticity can be seen as a return to an established

line of literary tricksters and confidence men, with tropes of fraud and artifice

running deep in the American grain.

Failing to recognize this shifting transatlantic dynamic during the Civil War era,

Now that we are over a decade into a new century, the field of Jewish American

ISBN:9780813056302 \14,280
This book provides a fresh assessment of the works of British-born poet

and painter Mina Loy. Laura Scuriatti shows how Loy’s “eccentric” writing and art

celebrate ideas and aesthetics central to the modernist movement while

simultaneously critiquing them, resulting in a continually self-reflexive and

detached stance that Scuriatti terms 'critical modernism.'

The first book to chart autonomy’s conceptual growth in Native American

literature from the late eighteenth to the early twenty-first century, A New
