Grade 9 Up-This anthology of essays and excerpted writings presents a multiplicity of perspectives about the writers, literature, and social meaning of this important historical era. An introductory overview is followed by 19 selections written by contemporaries of the 1920s as well as more current contributors, divided into areas that cover Harlem, playwrights, themes, racism, and the legacy of this movement. Sample essays include James Weldon Johnson's "The Capital of Negro Culture," George Hutchinson's "Jean Toomer and the Biracial Identity," and Langston Hughes's "The Negro Artist and the Racial Mountain." A useful compact volume.
