Authoritative TextBook - 2011
First published in 1923, Jean Toomer's Cane is an innovative literary work part drama, part poetry, part fiction powerfully evoking black life in the South. Rich in imagery, Toomer s impressionistic, sometimes surrealistic sketches of Southern rural and urban life are permeated by visions of smoke, sugarcane, dusk, and fire; the northern world is pictured as a harsher reality of asphalt streets. This iconic work of American literature is published with a new introduction by Rudolph Byrd of Emory University and Henry Louis Gates Jr. of Harvard University.
