About the Book

We're sorry; this specific copy is no longer available. Here are our closest matches for The Black Aesthetic by Gayle, Addison (editor).

Description:

Minor edge and corner wear, lightly scuffed and scratched, no dj, corners are gently bumped and rubbed, some light shelf wear, ex-library with the usual library markings, overall a nice used first edition (stated)! Extremely scarce and hard-to-find! Black cloth with gilt lettering on the front board and spine. 432 historical pages! Deckle page edges. Very very rare and out-of-print! "A new note, discernible even to the most biased observer, was sounded in the art of black people during the nineteen fifties and sixties. 'I will go on judging and elucidating novels and plays and poetry by Negroes according to what general powers I possess,' writes Richard Gilman, 'but the kind of Negro writing I have been talking about, the act of creation of the self in the face of the self's historic denial by our society, seems to me to be at this point beyond my right to intrude.' Some critics, less amenable to conversion than Gilman, would have us believe that only two elements separate the present-day black artist from his forerunner. One such element is anger!." ---- from the Introduction. Size: 8vo - over 7" - 9" tall. Bookseller Inventory # 034546
