It is an excellent book if you are starting a course on African American literature. But its just a companion and if you havent read the actual books, it will give you nothing. The book itself goes into details of the plot but it never gives you the entire plot and characters. Usually it focuses on certain aspects. I gave it 75% because sometimes the details didnt make any sense. ...more

This collection of essays are not to be taken as a basic introduction to Native American literature. As these Cambridge series works often are, they are "companion" pieces to a readership who already has some basic knowledge on the topic and would like to explore further. With its chapter outline, it serves a good survey-purpose. It provides a historical context, lays out genre related structures and focuses on individual authors. It's a good initial guide book for those interested.
