Summary
"Woolley expands the story of the Chicago Renaissance to encompass women and African-American writers, including reformers Jane Addams and Ida B. Wells, magazine founders Harriet Monroe and Margaret Anderson, and Bronzeville poet Fenton Johnson, in addition of famous writers such as Carl Sandburg and Vachel Lindsay. These authors probed the boundaries of language to convey simplicity, democracy, and Americanness - qualities that have come to be associated with the Chicago Renaissance." "Shedding light on a critical period in the history of American letters, Woolley's study illuminates the distinctly American character of Chicago writing and shows us how to listen to the diversity of its voices."--BOOK JACKET
