Summary
  • "Rudolph Byrd and Henry Louis Gates have given us the definitive critical edition of Jean Toomer's masterwork, Cane. Their introduction, a model of literary history, provides a thorough discussion of the author's biography as well as an in-depth discussion of the cultural and historical contexts that gave birth to the novel. As such, it introduces as not only to the text itself but also to the supporting documents gathered here. Autobiographical essays, correspondence, and an assortment of critical, literary, and scholarly essays all afford readers a wealth of material that furthers our understanding and appreciation of this text. With this volume, a literary gem has finally found the magnificent setting it deserves."--Farah Jasmine Griffin, Columbia University
  • "At last, a new Norton Critical Edition of Cane, and a vast improvement over what has been available. Professors Byrd and Gates's Introduction expertly situates the book in relation to the diverse strands of American modernism as well as Toomer's life and thought. With a generous, up-to-date, and well-chosen selection of ancillary readings, both primary and secondary, this edition of a modernist classic will be welcomed far and wide."--George Hutchinson, Indiana University --Book Jacket
