Summary
  • This book offers original readings of classic and contemporary black texts, highlighting the pain of racism and love-based strategies of antiracist resistance. Kathy Glass gives sustained attention to the impact of racist affect on the Black body and how Black women writers deploy emotional states to move readers to progressive political action
  • "Exploring literary possibilities, Politics and Affect in Black Women's Fiction reads Black women's texts as richly creative documents saturated with sociopolitical value. Through careful philosophical and sociopolitical reflections on love's staying power in these texts, Kathy Glass offers new insight into Black women's ingenuity and perseverance in personal, community, and political spaces. Interested in how African American women writers from the nineteenth century tot he present have mined the politics of affect and emotion to document love, shame, and suffering in environments shaped by race, the author gives sustained attention to the impact of racist affect on the Black body, and examines how Black women writers deploy emotional states to engender sociopolitical change"--
