Double-Take: A Revisionist Harlem Renaissance Anthology Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In this important new anthology, Venetria K. Patton and Maureen Honey bring together a comprehensive selection of texts from the Harlem Renaissance-a key period in the literary and cultural history of the United States. The collection revolutionizes our way of viewing this era, since it redresses the ongoing emphasis on the male writers of this time. Double-Take offers a unique, balanced collection of writers-men and women, gay and straight, familiar and obscure. Arranged by author, rather than by genre, this anthology includes works from major Harlem Renaissance figures as well as often-overlooked essayists, poets, dramatists, and artists.

The editors have included works from a wide variety of genres-poetry, short stories, drama, and essays-allowing readers to understand the true interdisciplinary quality of this cultural movement. Biographical sketches of the authors are provided and most of the pieces are included in their entirety. Double-Take also includes artwork and illustrations, many of which are from original journals and have never before been reprinted. Significantly, Double-Take is the first Harlem Renaissance title to include song lyrics to illustrate the interrelation of various art forms.

Book News Annotation:

Arranged by author, 23 essays and 155 creative pieces represent the artistic and intellectual range of the Harlem Renaissance. Featuring the work of women and men in equal numbers, and including overlooked writers as well as the major figures of the period, the book assembles poetry, short stories, drama, essays, and song lyrics. Artwork and illustrations from periodicals of the time are also included. Essays discuss the history of Harlem, jazz, discrimination against African Americans, and sexism. Brief biographies precede the work of each writer.
