Product Description

First published in 1923, Jean Toomer’s CANE is an innovative literary work – part drama, part poetry, part fiction – powerfully evoking black life in the South. Rich in imagery, Toomer’s impressionistic, sometimes surrealistic sketches of Southern rural and urban life are permeated by visions of smoke, sugarcane, dusk, and fire; the Northern world is pictured as a harsher reality of asphalt streets. This iconic work is published with a new afterword containing groundbreaking biographical information on the author, placing his writing within the context of the Harlem Renaissance, and examining his pioneering critique of race and shifting claims about his own race. 245p.
