Descrizione articolo


Offers an introduction to the Harlem Renaissance and presents thirty-five entries on major authors and their works, including literary criticism and a complete bibliography for each author.

From Booklist:

Intended for upper-high-school and undergraduate students, Harlem Renaissance spans three volumes. Volume 1 focuses on five topic areas, starting with an overview and background information, then moving on to chapters on social, economic, and political factors; publishing and periodicals; performing arts; and the visual arts. Each chapter averages about 100 pages and follows a standard pattern of organization. For example, the chapter discussing the performing arts begins with a two-page introduction followed by a list of representative works and a collection of primary materials. Essays reprinted from other sources provide overviews of performing arts during the Harlem Renaissance and discussions of drama, film, and music. Each chapter ends with a list of further readings. Reading lists are excellently annotated and current but neglect Internet sites.

Volumes 2 and 3 are devoted to writers. Eleven female and twenty-two male authors are discussed, among them Arna Bontemps, Marcus Garvey, Angelina Weld Grimke, James Weldon Johnson, and Dorothy West. Entries average 30 to 50 pages, the shortest being 7 pages. Most author entries include biographical profiles, lists of principal works, some primary source material, critical essays, and further reading lists. For example, the entry on Zora Neale Hurston includes, among other items, the short story "Spunk," nine complete critical essays reprinted from other sources, and a one-and-one-half page listing of further readings, including cross-references to other Gale titles. Two illustrations are included within the section on Hurston, a photo of the author and a playbill cover. Illustrations are in black and white and of good quality but used sparingly throughout the set. Each volume contains a cumulative author index, title index, and subject index plus a chronology outlining key events between 1890 and 1937.

Although much of the content is available elsewhere, including other publications from Gale (according to the preface there is 15 percent or less overlap with Gale's Literary Criticism series), it is useful to have so much material brought together and presented in this particular context. The breadth and depth of Harlem Renaissance make it a valuable and unique reference source for academic, public, and high-school libraries. A resource with a similar title, Harlem Renaissance (UXL, 2000), is better suited for younger audiences. RBB
