Description
Summary:"Richard Wright : New Readings in the 21st Century positions Wright studies in the 21st century in the best way possible. Richard Wright's legacy is updated in order to meet the needs of a growing international readership. This critical volume is also a step in making his accomplishments known to new generations of scholars. Gathering some of the most important Wright scholarship in the world, along with international work of emerging Wright critics, the collection contains unexplored themes and theoretical orientations centering on racism and spatial dimensions; the transnational and political Wright; Wright and masculinity, Wright and the American 1950s and 1960s; and some of the first analyses of Wright's recently published A Father's Law (2008). The collection combines literary and cultural theory with methods of archival and bibliographic research to provide an expanded vision of Wright's potential impact on thinking in the 21st century"--
