About this product
- DescriptionAt long last, critics, scholars, and lovers of fiction can experience the full range and imaginative powers of the collected vels of Paul Laurence Dunbar (1872-1906). In these four vels, readers can explore the characters, landscape, atmosphere, and visionary sensibilities of this preeminent African American writer. In the prime of his literary career, between 1898 and 1902, Dunbar published The Uncalled, The Love of Landry, The Fanatics, and The Sport of the Gods. Despite widespread critical interest, the vels have been largely subordinated to his short stories and poetry. The Collected Novels of Paul Laurence Dunbar redresses this imbalance by showing that the vels are also reflections of his exceptional literary talent. While correcting and standardizing the texts, the editors describe the major forms and themes of the vels, putting them in the proper contexts of Dunbar\u2019s creativity, his professional career, and his place in American literary history. Each vel explores, in varying degrees, the issues of race, class, politics, region, morality, and spirituality and challenges the assumption that black velists should cast only blacks as main characters and as messengers of racial-political unity. The Collected Novels of Paul Laurence Dunbar presents all four vels under one cover for the first time, allowing readers to to assess why he was such a seminal influence on the twentieth century African American writers who followed him into the American can. The Collected Novels of Paul Laurence Dunbar will interest students, teachers, scholars, and general readers for generations to come.
