Product Overview

This volume, the final one in a three-part series on the Jewish presence in twentieth-century American literature, first examines the special literary relationship of Blacks and Jews as exemplified in the writings of the two groups. Harap locates the historical roots of this relationship in Black folklore and history and finds illustrations of it in the work of Black novelists from Richard Wright to Paule Marshall. He examines the partial breakdown of this relationship in both social and literary terms during the 1970s.
