Figures in Black by Henry Louis Gates

Book Description

In this volume, Gates focuses critical attention on the most repressed element of African-American criticism - the language of the text. Incorporating the theoretical insights of critics such as Bakhtin, Foucault, Lacan, Derrida, and Bloom, he explores the work of a wide range of African-American writers from Phillis Wheatley to Ishmael Reed and Alice Walker.
