Black Literature Criticism; Classic and Emerging Authors Since 1950 - 3 Volume Set

Product Description
Complementing two earlier publications from Gale in the subject matter, including the RUSA award-winning Black Literature Criticism and its Supplement, this new title provides a wealth of information on 80 major black writers of the past 50 years. The scope of Black Literature Criticism: Classic and Emerging Authors since 1950 is wide, with authors spanning several genres and representing many nations, including Nigeria, Ghana, Kenya, South Africa, Algiers, Haiti, the United States and more.Shaped by an advisory board of scholars led by chief advisor Howard Dodson, Director, Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture of the New York Public Library, this publication was designed to meet the needs of university students, upper high school students, general readers and teachers. Featuring a broad selection of the best literary criticism from the last several decades of the 20thcentury and the first decade of the 21stcentury, this set also includes biographical sketches, critical and historical reception of each authors work, comprehensive notes and expansive lists of additional materials for further study. Approximately one third of the set updates classic black authors originally covered in Black Literature Criticism; the other two thirds of the set treat new and emerging authors not covered before. For those authors who were covered in earlier publications, all new criticism has been provided and all biographical sketches have been completely updated. [Description provided by the publisher]
