In the African-American Grain by John Callahan
Book Description"In the African-American Grain" is a powerful exploration of the impact of African-American oral storytelling techniques on modern and contemporary fiction. Reading literature in the call-and-response tradition, John F. Callahan shows how African-American writers including Charles Chesnutt, Jean Toomer, Zora Neale Hurston, Ralph Ellison, Ernest Gaines, and Alice Walker have used the forms and forces of this uniquely participatory discourse to establish not only a potential relationship between storyteller and audience but also a potential for change. In a new preface, Callahan comments on how the tradition of call-and-response has continued to develop among African-American writers as well as writers of other backgrounds.
