Summary
At the turn of the millennium, the Martinican novelist and critic Édouard Glissant offered the bold prediction that 'Faulkner's oeuvre will be made complete when it is revisited and made vital by African Americans,' a goal that 'will be achieved by a radically 'other' reading.' In the spirit of Glissant's prediction, 'Faulkner and the Black Literatures of the Americas' places William Faulkner's literary oeuvre in dialogue with a hemispheric canon of black writing from the US and the Caribbean. The volume's 17 essays and poetry selections chart lines of engagement, dialogue, and reciprocal resonance between Faulkner and his black precursors, contemporaries, and successors in the Americas
