The Turn to the Native: Studies in Criticism and Culture
Lieferbar innert 2 Wochen
BeschreibungThe Turn to the Native is a long-awaited assessment of Native American studies by one of its leading practitioners. Learned and passionate, the book is a timely account of Native American literature and the critical writings that have grown up around it. It is also a polemical intervention by a critic with abiding loyalties to Native American culture and to the Western intellectual heritage that has often been seen as hostile to Native culture and society.
PortraitArnold Krupat, a professor of literature at Sarah Lawrence College, is the author of "Ethnocriticism: Ethnography, History, Literature."
Pressestimmen"(Krupat shows) skill in deepening the meanings of contemporary Native American texts by extrapolating themes from specific stories.... Through his flashes of critical acumen, he himself is able to tell a good story as well." -- Boston Book Review
