Complicating Constructions Race, Ethnicity, and Hybridity in American Texts by David S. Goldstein

Complicating Constructions Race, Ethnicity, and Hybridity in American Texts

Part of the American Ethnic and Cultural Studies Series


Complicating Constructions Race, Ethnicity, and Hybridity in American Texts by David S. Goldstein

This volume of collected essays offers truly multiethnic, historically comparative, and meta-theoretical readings of the literature and culture of the United States. Covering works by a diverse set of American authors - from Toni Morrison to Bret Harte - these essays provide a vital supplement to the critical literary canon, mapping a newly variegated terrain that refuses the distinction between ethnic and nonethnic literatures.


This collection does seem to be unique in its mixture of essays written about 'ethnic

texts, and it may hearken the beginning of the end of the traditional binary method of categorizing American texts

. * Multi-Cultural Reviews * Unlike other recent treatments. . . this one is broad, and therein lies its strength. . . . Recommended. * Choice *
