Masters of the Drum: Black Literature Across the Continuum

by Robert E. Fox

Greenwood Publishing Group, Incorporated | January 9, 1995 | Hardcover

Not yet rated | write a review

"Masters of the Drum," comprising eight essays and two interviews, examines both celebrated and insufficiently explored Caribbean, African, and African-American lit/orature that asserts the interface between the scribal and the spoken/gestural in Black word art. This triple play--engagement with the three principal regions of the Black world--reflects the author's interest in Black comparative studies, wherein the expressions and emphases of the Black Atlantic tradition (Africa and its diasporas) are deeply exposed and revealingly juxtaposed. The book's apparent eclecticism is intended to help flex the boundaries of Black literary and cultural studies in response to the dangers of a narrow construction of the newly canonical and of an overly particularist critical stance.
