READING: Seminar paper from the year 2010 in the subject American Studies - Literature, grade: 1,0, University of Paderborn (Anglistik/Amerikanistik), course: Contemporary African-American Literature, language: English, abstract: The title of Ernest J. Gaines' book A Lesson Before Dying already alludes to the fact that education is one of the main themes of the novel. In this essay, I want to analyze the different aspects of education that are represented in his work. I will concentrate on the subject of formal education and would like to pose the question if it is a way out of "mental" slavery for African-American people.

READING: ‘De onschuld zelve’ (‘The Innocent Wife’) van Amy Lloyd is een thriller voor de fans van de Netflix-serie ‘Making a Murderer’. Dennis Danson is het onderwerp van een Making a Murderer-achtige documentaire waarin vraagtekens worden gezet bij zijn veroordeling voor moord. Sam volgt de zaak op de voet, zeker nu haar brieven aan Dennis steeds intiemer van toon worden. Ze bezoekt hem in de gevangenis en vecht, uiteindelijk als zijn vrouw, voor zijn vrijlating. Wanneer die campagne slaagt en Dennis wordt vrijgelaten, begint Sam echter te twijfelen aan zijn verhalen. Is hij wel zo onschuldig als hij zich heeft voorgedaan en wat weet Dennis nou écht over de meisjes die twintig jaar eerder verdwenen? Amy Lloyd woont en werkt in Cardiff. In haar debuut ‘De onschuld zelve’ combineert ze haar fascinatie voor true crime en haar passie voor fictie.

READING: Hattie Shepherd is vijftien jaar als zij voor het eerst moeder wordt. Met een hart vol hoop op een betere toekomst is zij naar Philadelphia gekomen. Haar Amerikaanse droom wordt echter keer op keer stukgeslagen in het gesegregeerde Amerika van de twintigste eeuw. In deze keiharde wereld brengt zij haar kinderen groot door pure wilskracht, maar zonder de liefde die zij ook zo nodig hebben. Ayana Mathis creëerde een intiem en hartverscheurend portret van Hattie Shepherd in verschillende fasen van haar leven en door de ogen van haar kinderen, die stuk voor stuk de gevolgen dragen van hun opvoeding. Het is een psychologisch trefzeker, prachtig geschreven boek over een ongelofelijk sterke vrouw.

READING: This collection of essays centers on musical elements that authors have employed in their work, thus joining heard sounds to a visual perception of their stories. The spectrum of authors represented is a wide one, from Pound to Durrell, from Steinbeck to Cather, from Beckett to Gaines, but even more unusual is the variety of musical type represented. Classical music (the quartet, the fugue, the symphony), Jazz (the jazz riff and jazz improv) and the spiritual all appear along with folk song and so-called random “noise.”Such diversity suggests that there are few limits when readers consider how great writers utilize musical styles and techniques. Indeed, each author seems to realize that it is not the type of music that s/he chooses to employ that is important. Rather, it is the realization that such musical elements as harmony, dissonance, tonal repetition and beat are just as important in prose composition as they are in poetry and song. The essayists have selected some works that may be considered obscure and some that are modern classics. Each one, however, has captured one of the varied ways in which words and music complement and enhance each other.

Genre Philosophy
Pages 254
ISBN 1433103605
Language English, Spanish, And French

READING: Doing Good, Departing from Evil: Research Findings in the Twenty-First Century emphasizes that goodness must be actively enacted, not abstractly discussed, that evil is present and must be fought, and that in-depth research into problems provides wisdom to proceed with that battle in the new century. Eleven scholars investigate problematic topics and offer potential guidance about racism, propaganda, marital tensions, educational inequities, college dropouts, elders’ depression, neglect of the disabled, and even peacemaking between faith-based and secular social work agencies as well as Israelis and Palestinians. This collection offers no easy answers to complex problems, but points the way to potentially positive modes of mending the world, and invites readers to share in this challenging task.

The Book Black Outlaws
The Author Carlyle Van Thompson
The Publisher Peter Lang
Release Date2010
Genre Literary Criticism
Pages 215
ISBN 082048637X
Language English, Spanish, And French

READING: In this provocative and original exploration of Black males and the legal establishment, Carlyle Van Thompson illuminates the critical issues defining Black male subjectivity. Since the days of Black people’s enslavement and the days of Jim Crow segregation, Black males have been at odds with the legal and extra-legal restrictions that would maintain white supremacy and white male privilege. Grounded in the voices of Frederick Douglass and David Walker, who challenged hegemonic systems designed to socio-economically disenfranchise Black people, Black Outlaws examines legal aspects with regard to Black males during the period of segregation. By critically looking at Richard Wright’s The Outsider, Chester Bomar Himes’ The Third Generation, Walter Mosley’s Devil in a Blue Dress, and Ernest J. Gaines’ A Lesson Before Dying – all of which examine Black males during the Jim Crow period – Thompson investigates the challenges that Black males confront and surmount in their journeys to establish their individual and collective agency. Black Outlaws helps decipher critical legal and racial issues in the works of four of the most important Black male writers, and is suitable for readers in literary studies, cultural studies, and history.
