Although psychoanalytic theory is one of the most potent and influential tools in contemporary literary criticism, to date it has had very little impact on the study of African American literature. Critical methods from the disciplines of history, sociology, and cultural studies have dominated work in the field. Now, in this exciting new book by the author of Domestic Allegories: The Black Heroine's Text at the Turn of the Century, Claudia Tate demonstrates that psychoanalytic paradigms can produce rich and compelling readings of African American textuality. With clear and accessible summaries of key concepts in Freud, Lacan, and Klein, as well as deft reference to the work of contemporary psychoanalytic critics of literature, Tate explores African- American desire, alienation, and subjectivity in neglected novels by Emma Kelley, W.E.B. Du Bois, Richard Wright, Zora Neale Hurston, and Nella Larsen. Her pioneering approach highlights African American textual realms within and beyond those inscribing racial oppression and modes of black resistance. A superb introduction to psychoanalytic theory and its applications for African American literature and culture, this book creates a sophisticated critical model of black subjectivity and desire for use in the study of African American texts.

About the Author:

Claudia Tate is at George Washington University.

Review:


"...intriguing....Tate's study raises crucial questions about the way African American subjectivity is addressed within literary studies....she inspires a reevaluation of how texts produce that black subjectivity."--Modernism/Modernity


"Tate reads these somewhat obscure black novels in ways that they have never been read before, applying theoretical principles as effectively as anyone else has ever done. Insights into the psyches of Hurston, Larsen, Wright and others are absolutely invaluable."--James Robert Saunders, Purdue University
