CLR James and American Literature

ntellectual CLR James was an insatiable reader of world literature, but the literature and popular culture of the United States claimed a special place in his imagination. This seminar reads American literature from the mid-nineteenth- (Melville, Whitman) to the late-twentieth centuries (Wright, Morrison, Alice Walker) alongside James┬┐s literary criticism and political thought. Recent critical and theoretical texts will supplement these primary readings.
