The Quest for the Social Self in Afro-American Literature from Alain Locke to Ralph Ellison.
Gallagher, Brian
Community Review, v5 n1 p6-13 Spr 1983
Demonstrates, through five literary works published between 1927 and 1952, how the optimistic view of the relation between cultural heritage and social change espoused during the Harlem Renaissance developed into a more pessimistic and paradoxical, but ultimately more aesthetically feasible, vision for Afro-American literature.
