Sample text

Harper’s Iola Leroy: Or, Shadows Uplifted (1899) through Charles Chesnutt’s The Marrow of Tradition (1901), arguing that while uplift is sometimes used to assert equal status with whites, it is also used at times to assert a higher status in relation to other, supposedly inferior blacks. Writers of the Harlem Renaissance, such as Nella Larsen, were wary of Washington’s influence, as he seemed to undermine black progress with his appeal to the supremacist sensibilities of white supporters. Larsen’s novel Quicksand (1928) and Rudolph Fisher’s The Walls of Jericho (1928) indicate the dangers of white patronage, which is seen to present African Americans as in need of constant elevation.

One ever feels his two-ness – an American, a Negro; two souls, two thoughts, two unreconciled strivings; two warring ideals in one dark body, whose dogged strength alone keeps it from being torn asunder. Henry Adams describes forces that destroy intellectual coherence; Du Bois describes forces that may ultimately engender creativity through courageous endurance. For Du Bois, the “two-ness” of African American experience enables a new, authentically American art exemplified by the sorrow songs. He opens each chapter of Souls with an excerpt of a piece of canonical Western literature and a line of music from these songs, using this juxtaposition to both validate and differentiate the artistry of the music.

Paul Simpson and Don Hardy, in their chapter on “American Sentences,” explore a vocabulary drawn from the field of stylistics. They consider linguistic and literary devices as used by the writers of the period – dialect, labels, lexis, and syntax – before moving to a more developed analysis of the “hard-boiled” style. While parts of this chapter may seem “technical,” Simpson and Hardy demonstrate that a stylistic focus can reveal aspects of a text that might seem “mere details” but which have far-reaching implications.
