about

Rita Dove (b. 1952) was elected Poet Laureate--the first ever African-American to hold the position--in 1993, in recognition of work that combines racially sensitive observation with searing and immediate personal experience. She is best known for her substantial body of poetry, although shehas also been recognized for her many accomplishments in drama and fiction, written in both German and English. Crossing Color, written by a well-known Americanist in the European community, is the first full-length critical study offering a comprehensive biographic and literary portrait of RitaDove and her work.

Editorial Reviews

"Crossing Color: Transcultural Space and Place in Rita Dove's Poetry, Fiction, and Drama is Therese Seffren's testament to this writer's "crossover" ability. Dove's crossings include those of color, gender, culture, continental boundaries, and genres. . . . Noteworthy is the study of Throughthe Ivory Gate as a work of "artistic enspacement" drawing on Greek tragedy for its modes of simultaneity and reversibility."--American Literary Scholarship
