Cane (75 - Old Edition)by Jean Toomer
Synopses & ReviewsPlease note that used books may not include additional media (study guides, CDs, DVDs, solutions manuals, etc.) as described in the publisher comments.
A literary masterpiece of the Harlem Renaissance, is a powerful work of innovative fiction evoking black life in the South. The sketches, poems, and stories of black rural and urban life that make up are rich in imagery. Visions of smoke, sugarcane, dusk, and flame permeate the Southern landscape: the Northern world is pictured as a harsher reality of asphalt streets. Impressionistic, sometimes surrealistic, the pieces are redolent of nature and Africa, with sensuous appeals to eye and ear.
"[Cane] has been reverberating in me to an astonishing degree.
