Summary
In challenging conventional constructions of the Harlem Renaissance and American modernism, Daylanne English argues that in the 1920s, the form and content of writings by figures as disparate as W.E.B. Du Bois, T.S. Eliot, Gertrude Stein, and Nella Larsen were shaped by anxieties regarding immigration and intraracial breeding
