A propos de cet article

Language: English . Brand New Book. This book contains reflections on the relationships between black American intellectuals and African American musical traditions from blues to hip hop.These learned but engagingly personal essays by the late poet and critic Lorenzo Thomas explore the interrelationships among African American music, literature, and popular culture, from the Harlem Renaissance to the present. Thomas (1944-2005) was an important American poet and a leading literary figure in the Black Arts Movement of the 1960s. His own work was profoundly influenced by black musical forms, providing a unique historical and aesthetic perspective that sets this book apart from other books that examine black music. Don t Deny My Name (which takes its title from a blues song) begins by laying out the case for the blues as constituting a body of literature, one that confronts the situation of African American migrants to the urban North and newer territories to the West. The essays that follow collectively provide a tour of the movement through classic jazz, bop, and the explosions of the free jazz era, followed by a section on RB and Soul. The collection ends with a polemical essay about the hip hop phenomenon. N° de réf. du libraire AAN9780472098927

A propos de ce titre

Synopsis :

Black musical forms profoundly influenced the work of American poet and leading literary figure Lorenzo Thomas, and he wrote about them with keen insight---and obvious pleasure. This book, begun by Thomas before his death in 2005, collects more than a dozen of his savvy yet engagingly personal essays that probe the links between African American music, literature, and popular culture, from the Harlem Renaissance to the present.

Don't Deny My Name (which takes its title from a blues song by Jelly Roll Morton) begins by laying out the case that the blues is a body of literature that captured the experience of African American migrants to the urban North and newer territories to the West. The essays that follow collectively provide a tour of the movement through classic jazz, bop, and the explosions of the free jazz era, followed by a section on R&B and soul. The penultimate essay is a meditation on rap music that attempts to bring together the extremes of emotion that hip hop elicits, and the collection ends with an unfinished preface to the volume.
