Lesser-known Giants of the 20th Century - Taschenbuch

1976, ISBN: 9781439225486

Gebundene Ausgabe, ID: 26260893

New York. 1976. Random House. 1st American Edition. Very Good In Worn Dustjacket W/Tears & A Huge Piece Missing From The Bottom Back. 170 pages. May 1976. hardcover. Jacket design by Mike Stromberg. 0394497910. keywords: Literature America Black. inventory # 25553. FROM THE PUBLISHER - Henry Dumas was a first-rate writer with first-order intelligence. The publication of his short stories, ARK OF BONES, and poetry, PLAY EBONY PLAY IVORY, was received with spectacular acclaim. Now a novel has been discovered that will satisfy the appetites whetted by these earlier works. JONOAH AND THE GREEN STONE is a story about what it was like for a young Black man from Arkansas to deal with the turbulence of the sixties. Beginning in 1938, floating on a johnnyboat in the middle of a Mississippi flood that has just orphaned him, the narrator takes us on a journey of a man hunted down in cane fields and haunted by his own conscience - until finally, once again, he finds himself on the Mississippi River, certain he is going to die. JONOAH AND THE GREEN STONE was in draft at the time of Dumas’ death, but even in that stage (and with help from Eugene Redmond) it is the most haunting, the most beautiful, the most moving piece of fiction published in a long, long time. Dumas’ talent has that rare ingredient: authority. HENRY DUMAS, a prize-winning writer, was born in Sweet Home, Arkansas, on July 20, 1934, and moved to New York City when he was ten years old. His life was ended abruptly on May 23, 1968, by bullets from the gun of a New York Transit policeman in the subway. Reasons for the killing have remained vague and unsatisfactory. Before his death Dumas had been active on the ‘little’ magazine circuit as well as in the initial opening scene of the Black Arts Movement, publishing his stories and poems in Negro Digest/Black World, Rutgers’ Anthologist, the Hiram Poetry Review, Umbra and Black Fire. Since his death his reputation and writings have attracted a large and international community of readers. On the heels of the publication of ARK OF BONES AND OTHER STORIES and PLAY EBONY PLAY IVORY, writers, artists and students gathered in several largely Black areas of the country to read from the works and proclaim the genius of Dumas. Among the anthologies and periodicals which have printed his work since his death are: Black Scholar, Essence, Brothers and Sisters, Confrontation, Galaxy of Black Writing, You Better Believe it, Open Poetry and Giant Talk: An Anthology of Third World Writings. Just before his death, Dumas was employed by Southern Illinois University’s Experiment in Higher Education in East St. Louis. His widow, Loretta Dumas, and his sons, David and Michael, make their home in Willingboro, New Jersey. Eugene B. Redmond is a native of East St. Louis, Illinois, and it was there that he met Henry Dumas at SIU’s Experiment in Higher Education, where they were both employed as teacher-counselors. Redmond has published five books of poetry and recorded one LP of his poetry to musical accompaniment. For two years he served as Senior Consultant to Katherine Dunham at SIU’s Performing Arts Training Center in East St. Louis, where he founded Black River Writers Press. From 1969 to 1970 Redmond served as Writer-in-Residence at Oberlin College and he has taught at numerous other institutions, including Southern University, Webster College, Sacramento’s Oak Park School of Afro-American Thought, and California State University, Sacramento, where he is currently Professor of English and Poet-in-Residence in Ethnic Studies. In 1974 he edited Dumas’ poetry (PLAY EBONY PLAY IVORY) and stories (ARK OF BONES AND OTHER STORIES). Redmond’s critical articles and poetry have appeared in dozens of journals, anthologies and newspapers, and his critical history of Black poetry, DRUMVOICES: THE MISSION OF AFRO-AMERICAN POETRY, will be published this year. In 1974 Redmond developed a stage play from Dumas’ poems and stories; the play MUSIC AND I HAVE COME AT LAST! was performed by the Sons/ Ancestors Players in December of that same year at CSUS.

Dimensions: 8.4in. x 5.4in. x 0.4in.Red Earth and Other Poems Adamu Ajunam Red Earth is a poets conscious effort at capturing the character of the Nigerian society and the challenges faced by the countrys citizens in the task of nation building. The many differences in tribe and tongue notwithstanding, the poet posits that lack of good leadership has been the malaise that has continued to plague this prosperous country, and which has brought the preponderant majority of its peoples to the brink of poverty in spite of the abundant human and natural resources the country has been blessed with. However, the spirit behind this collection of poems is positive - one of optimism, aspiration and hope - to awaken the giant within to redemption of self. . . to overcome the various forces that have held the nation down for so long and enable her scale new and hitherto unfathomable heights. The title poem Red Earth depicts and extols the beauty of the country. It underscores the necessity for Nigerians to begin to see through the facades of civilization and globalization, to overcome their addictive and poisonous side-effects, to embrace the nations rich cultural heritage and direct these and the homelands abundant resources into uplifting the country and ensuring her genuine progress and development among the worlds comity of nations. Most of the poems are written in free verse to capture the vibrancy, resilience and vitality of this great nation and her diverse peoples. Adamu Ajunam was born in Kaduna in 1950 and has travelled round the six geopolitical zones of Nigeria and outside its shores pursuing his passion for photography. A successful engineer, he has to his credit two well-documented travel guides on Nigeria, Eko-the Navel of a Giant and Nigeria - A Harvest of Nature. Ajunam lives and works in Lagos.

Dimensions: 9.0in. x 6.0in. x 0.7in.An obscure medical researcher develops Bevvinase, the miracle enzyme capable of driving carbon dioxide-to oxygen conversion within the organism, a radical innovation that opens the hostile Martian environment to permanent colonization. Decades later, several hundred Burroughs Enclave denizens are teetering on the brink of becoming a lost colony when former intelligence officer and alpinist Jesperson, together with his work-partner Barnes, both deported felons, are among the few hundred Marsrats - Mars-rationalized, carbon-dioxide-breathing humans - living within the pressurized, roof-shielded crater housing Burroughs in proximity to the long shadow of the immense Olympus Mons shield volcano and its vast aqueduct system, the sole source of essential water. A minor eruption and ensuing quake causes unknown damage to the aqueduct system, and the ow of water abruptly ceases, while at the same time a brewing earthly economic crisis provides a reason for the enclaves former sponsor, giant conglomerate Vonex Corporation, to ofcially hand over absentee governance of the enclave to the United Nations Organization. Struggling against vigorous opposition, with aid from the homeworld unavailable, Jesperson and Barnes lead a semi-suicidal trek to the volcanos heights in a desperate attempt to repair the aqueduct and save the Marsrats.

Dimensions: 8.0in. x 5.3in. x 1.2in.Wonderful life stories quickly fade from collective memory, so that the lessons and inspiration they offer are lost to future generations. Every age has produced people who accomplished great things in life and became celebrities as a result, but whose stars have grown faint over time. Here are 11 stories that form a mosaic of 20th century history. Two of the subjects, though not Americans themselves, identify closely with the American experience of the 20th Century. All the others were either people of long-standing American heritage or the descendants of more recent immigrants. They were Polish, Italian, Jewish, German, African-American and Palestinian. They include figures from professional sports, politics, journalism, entertainment, academe and banking. Diversity, however, was a happy byproduct. The objective was to find stories that amaze, inspire and warm the heart. People of great achievement seem to attract and cross paths with the most powerful, talented, wealthy, glamorous and famous. Biographical vignettes are sprinkled throughout these stories. Among the many historical figures encountered are Bernard Shaw, Mark Twain, Herbert Hoover, Franklin D. Roosevelt, Babe Ruth, Will Rogers, Wild Bill Donovan, J. Robert Oppenheimer, Jesse Owens, Jimmy Braddock, Damon Runyon, Red Barber, Fiorello LaGuardia, Joseph McCarthy, Herb Block, Thomas Dewey, Martin Luther King, Jr. , Rosa Parks, Marie Curie, Claude Pepper, Sam Ervin, Christiaan Barnard, Henry Heimlich, Ralph Nader and Daniel Barenboim. The primary objective of this work is to inspire a sense of amazement. The achievements of the main subjects, their portrayal within the American century, and their inter-actions with other sleeping giants are the results. This item ships from multiple locations.
