Subjectivity in the American Protest Novel

ISBN 9780230118300
Publication Date March 2011
Formats Ebook (PDF) Hardcover Ebook (EPUB) 
Publisher Palgrave Macmillan

In the first major study of the twentieth-century American protest novel, Kimberly S. Drake examines a group of authors who self-consciously exploited the revolutionary potential of the novel. These works transformed literary conventions concerning art and politics, readers, and characters. This project draws upon a range of cultural studies concepts to take a fresh look at Richard Wright, Ann Petry, Tillie Olsen, Chester Himes, and Sarah Wright.

Kimberly S. Drake is Director of the Writing Program and Visiting Associate Professor at Scripps College.
