A Gallery Of Harlem Portraits

Book by Melvin B. Tolson, A Gallery Of Harlem Portraits Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download A Gallery Of Harlem Portraits books, A Gallery of Harlem Portraits is Melvin B. Tolson's first book-length collection of poems. It was written in the 1930s when Tolson was immersed in the writings of the Harlem Renaissance, the subject of his master's thesis at Columbia University, and will provide scholars and critics a rich insight into how Tolson's literary picture of Harlem evolved. Modeled on Edgar Lee Master's Spoon River Anthology and showing the influence of Browning and Whitman, it is rooted in the Harlem Renaissance in its fascination with Harlem's cultural and ethnic diversity and its use of musical forms. Robert M. Farnsworth's afterword elucidates these and other literary influences. Tolson eventually attempted to incorporate the technical achievements of T.S. Eliot and the New Criticism into a complex modern poetry which would accurately represent the extraordinary tensions, paradoxes, and sophistication, both highbrow and lowbrow, of modern Harlem. As a consequence his position in literary history is problematical. The publication of this earliest of his manuscripts will help clarify Tolson's achievement and surprise many of his readers with its readily accessible, warmly human poetic portraiture.

The Harlem Group Of Negro Writers

Book by Melvin Beaunorus Tolson, The Harlem Group Of Negro Writers Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download The Harlem Group Of Negro Writers books, Melvin B. Tolson (1898-1966), mostly known for his poetry and an unduly neglected figure in American literary history, is among the very first African American critics to comment on the Harlem Renaissance. This book is an edition of his 1940 MA thesis, the first academic study of the Harlem Renaissance written by an African American scholar. Tolson was a poet who lived in Harlem in the early 1930s and thus was both a participant in and historian of one of the most significant movements in African American literature and culture.

Melvin B Tolson 1898 1966

Book by Robert M. Farnsworth, Melvin B Tolson 1898 1966 Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Melvin B Tolson 1898 1966 books, In this biography of Tolson, Robert M. Farnsworth has gathered much new information on the poet from family papers; from reminiscences of friends, acquaintances, and relatives; and from scholarly analyses of his work to create a clarifying and insightful account of the poet's life. The events and preoccupations of Tolson's life in turn provide a useful context for examining Tolson's major poems. Moreover, Farnsworth has determined the chronology of most of Tolson's writings, many of which were before either unknown or known only through obscure references. --University of Missouri Press.
