Black Aesthetics and the Interior Life
summary
BLACK AESTHETICS AND THE INTERIOR LIFE makes a striking and original contribution to our understanding of African American literature and culture. Freeburg looks to moments when black characters are rendered as inhuman, as object, or as flesh so as better to understand the nature of black personhood and subjectivity in literature. In doing so, he stakes a claim for the defiant humanity of black charactersâ€_and, by extension, of black peopleâ€_under pressure and in pain.
