A most attractive first edition/first printing in unread Fine condition in alike dustjacket. SIGNED by author Toni Morrison directly on the title page.
Morrison examines the American literary imagination and finds that an African American presence has always permeated white American literature. She ponders the effect that living in a historically racialized society has had on American writing in the 19th and 20th centuries. Her daring perspective is sure to alter conventional notions about American literature as she considers Willa Cather, Poe, Hawthorne, Melville, Twain and Hemingway.
