  • Fugitive Slave, Fugitive Novelist: The Narrative of James Williams (1838)
    • Authors: Santamarina X.
      Pages: 24 - 46
      Abstract: This essay argues for reading a discredited slave narrative—the Narrative of James Williams (1838)—as an early black novel. Reading this narrative as a founding black novel à la Robinson Crusoe complicates the genealogy and theoretical parameters of literary criticism about early US black fiction. Such a reading revises accounts about the emergence of the third-person fictive voice inaugurated by Frederick Douglass and William Wells Brown in the 1850s. It also offers a new understanding of the antislavery movement’s quest for authenticity. More importantly, reading NJW as novelistic fiction illustrates how a fugitive slave might narrativize muddied textual politics and effectively challenge the reparative vision with which we theorize the genres and politics of early African American literary texts.

  • Black Anaesthetics: The New Yorker and Andrea Lee’s Russian Journal
    • Authors: Myers S.
      Pages: 47 - 73
      Abstract: This essay demonstrates the oft-dismissed centrality of critical race thought to posthumanist studies by excavating the neglected writings of the New Yorker magazine’s earliest black staff writers. Within this early post–Civil Rights archive of “The Talk of the Town” columns and a Russian travelogue, this essay uncovers conditions of possibility for the emergence of racially anomalous strains of contemporary black narrative that have long discomfited canon-makers. Analyzing how the implicitly white persona of “The Talk of the Town” functioned as an avatar of the liberal humanist subject, I show how Andrea Lee, Charlayne Hunter, and Jamaica Kincaid undermined or appropriated this figure of Man. Their experiments with racial legibility in their unsigned columns would give rise to what I term black anaesthetics: narrative practices that disable the reader’s capacity to make meaning of race even as they disclose traces of racialized blackness. Working thus both in and out of touch with racial reality, black anaesthetic texts such as Lee’s Russian Journal (1981), Toni Morrison’s “Recitatif” (1983), and Octavia Butler’s “Bloodchild” (1984) suspend processes of racialization vital to the production of Man’s human Others. In doing so, they invite us to rethink the descent of what has come to be called posthumanism.

  • Visionary Modernism: A Witnessing
    • Authors: Filreis A.
      Pages: 132 - 138
      Abstract: Joan Richardson makes a large, alluring claim for an experiment in the form of critical writing. The 13 sections of Wallace Stevens’s “Thirteen Ways of Looking at a Blackbird” are to the whole of Richardson’s argument about the positive ethical and political effects of secular “modernist visionary thinking” as the blackbird of the famous cubist poem is to the varying landscape where it can always eventually be observed. Richardson’s critical and theoretical landscape features many high, low, quotidian, and surreal ways in which humans can realize that “it matters what you pay attention to.” The contemporary mind “entrained to ‘the exquisite environment of fact’ will tune its instrument to the temperament of the cosmos, thereby increasing the shadings of meaning exponentially.” Richardson’s decision to impose a rigorous (and specifically derivative) constraint, with its enforcement of philosophical good health and attention, thus “turns out to be the ideal corrective to life in our moment.”

  • Melville Incomplete
    • Authors: Ohge C.
      Pages: 139 - 150
      Abstract: The final volume of Melville’s unfinished writings by the Northwestern-Newberry edition is a monumental achievement. Monumental but also vexed, and vexing. Melville’s unfinished poetry and especially his unfinished novella Billy Budd challenge traditional editorial theories of eclectic editing that have guided the NN editions for decades. The final volume remains beholden to a theory of critical editing that is less suited to the purpose of editing unfinished manuscripts than of works that exist solely in print versions. This dilemma makes the volume a fascinating instance of the choices editors must make in the era of digital editions. The edition, while mainly improving upon previous editions of Billy Budd and making available reliable texts of unpublished poems, also takes some perplexing liberties with Melville’s unfinished manuscripts. Aloof to new and enormously useful electronic resources, the edition’s diplomatic transcriptions also represent a huge amount of duplicated effort, and a lost opportunity for collaboration with existing digital projects. This edition is a valuable resource, but the debatable emendations of unfinished manuscripts, coupled with the dismissal of the currently available digital resources for manuscript study, show that the reading texts should be consulted with some skepticism and with recourse to the surviving manuscripts.

      Abstract: In the midst of the Haitian Revolution, a young white Saint-Dominguan creole obtains military leave in order to join his friends for an evening featuring “danse, festin, musique et cetera” (“dance, feasting, music etc.”).11 After devouring “tout ce qu’il y a de plus délicieux” (“all that is most delicious”), the soldier and his group decide to cap their revelry with a sumptuous breakfast, only to receive news that a battalion of black revolutionaries has intercepted and eaten their hoped-for repast (Pillet, Mon Odyssée 211).22 Hungry, furious, and now frightened, the pleasure seekers begin their journey home. Riding back through a thickly wooded ravine, the creoles stumble across a Tempest-like apparition: a rich spread of delicacies lies on the grass, including “un pâté froid, dont la vaste circonférence renferme de nombreuses victimes” (“a cold pâté, the wide circumference of which imprisons many victims”), and “une dinde énorme peut à peine contenir les truffes dont elle est farcie” (“an enormous turkey that can hardly hold the truffles with which it is stuffed”; MO 219). These pleasures of the table suggest violence in their very excess—“victims” comprise the massive pâté—while also subsuming this aggression into the idealized character of the picnic scene. Real violence has no place in this ravine, where the raison d’être is to entertain and indulge. Although the shadowy presence of revolutionaries signals the impending collapse of Saint-Domingue, the fantasy of a lavish, self-perpetuating meal enables the creole and his companions to exclude the revolution as significant to their act of colonial consumption. There is nothing to see here but their feast.

  • Network Unavailable: Informal Populations and Literary Form
    • Authors: Gladstone J.
      Pages: 74 - 95
      Abstract: It is now frequently asserted—even assumed—that the fact of interconnection is, indeed, a fact about a contemporary condition characterized by the globalization of economic and technological relationships. This is significant because, as Patrick Jagoda has recently demonstrated, “the mantra of the present is that everything is interconnected” (30). According to Jagoda, experiences of interconnection have become pervasive because the networked condition they imply has been naturalized: the “network” has been consolidated as “our current cultural dominant” (221). As scholars like Jagoda, Kris Cohen, and Wendy Chun have demonstrated, this consolidation of the network concept has occurred in conjunction with the rise of neoliberalism and the development of the Internet. Attuned to such developments, agenda-setting scholars of global American literature like Wai Chee Dimock, Ursula Heise, and Bruce Robbins have focused our critical attention on literature’s capacity to make readers apprehend the scales and antinomies of planetary interconnectedness. Given how pervasive is the network concept, this attention has served a productive approach to contemporary US literature. What it leaves out, however, are global novels of the Americas like Roberto Bolaño’s 2666 (2004) and Tao Lin’s Taipei: A Novel (2013)—two novels that, as different as they are, represent the contemporary as a condition in which reality is not governed by the laws of interconnectedness. These novels abjure interconnection to represent the present. In 2666 the contemporary is neither networked nor interconnected; in Taipei it is networked but not interconnected. In both, the fact of interconnection is not a fact. Rather, here personhood is inoperative and networks are unavailable. While our critical attention is still focused on interconnection, 2666 and Taipei represent the contemporary as a globalized condition of nonconnection—a condition they center on informal populations of nonpersons. From this perspective, the task of the contemporary global novel is not to produce feelings of connection and expansions of subjectivity. These narratives instead demonstrate that the contemporary global novel can make readers understand how globalization isolates people and divests them of subjectivity.While our critical attention is still focused on interconnection, 2666 and Taipei represent the contemporary as a globalized condition of nonconnection—a condition they center on informal populations. . . .
