Explorations in Sights and Sounds
Opening the volume is a brief introduction by Elizabeth Ammons in which she discusses the major premise around which this book is organized -- namely, that “tricksterism” is a phenomenon in turn-of-the-century literature that, through tricks in authorship and narrative intention, disrupts the “master narrative” of the dominant racist Anglo culture. The articles concern works from a range of cultural backgrounds: Chinese American, Mexican American, Native American, European American, and African American. Each article includes endnotes and a list of works cited. The volume also offers contributors’ notes and an index.
