Originally published in 1923, Jean Toomers Cane remains an innovative literary workpart drama, party poetry, part fiction. This revised Norton Critical Edition builds upon the First Edition (1988), which was edited by the late Darwin T. Turner, a pioneering scholar in the field of African American studies. The Second Edition begins with the editors introduction, a major work of scholarship that places Toomer within the context of American Modernism and the Harlem Renaissance. The introduction provides groundbreaking biographical information on Toomer and examines his complex, contradictory racial position as well as his own pioneering views on race. Illustrative materials include government documents containing contradictory information on Toomers race, several photographs of Toomer, and a map of Sparta, Georgiathe inspiration for the first and third parts of Cane. The edition reprints the 1923 foreword to Cane by Toomers friend Waldo Frank, which helped introduce Toomer to a small but influential readership. Revised and expanded explanatory annotations are also included. Backgrounds and Sources collects a wealth of autobiographical writing that illuminates important phases in Jean Toomers intellectual life, including a central chapter from The Wayward and the Seeking and Toomers essay on teaching the philosophy of Russian psychologist and mystic Georges I. Gurdjieff, Why I Entered the Gurdjieff Work. The volume also reprints thirty of Toomers letters from 191930, the height of his literary career, to correspondents including Waldo Frank, Sherwood Anderson, Claude McKay, Horace Liveright, Georgia OKeeffe, and James Weldon Johnson. An unusually rich Criticism section demonstrates deep and abiding interest in Cane. Five contemporary reviewsincluding those by Robert Littell and W. E. B. Du Bois and Alain Lockesuggest its initial reception. From the wealth of scholarly commentary on Cane, the editors have chosen twenty-one major interpretations spanning eight decades including those by Langston Hughes, Robert Bone, Darwin T. Turner, Charles T. Davis, Alice Walker, Gayl Jones, Barbara Foley, Mark Whalan, and Nellie Y. McKay. A Chronology, new to the Second Edition, and an updated Selected Bibliography are also included.
