Playing in the Dark : Whiteness and the Literary Imagination - Toni Morrison Recent reread. Argues that American literature (and culture) develops its ideas of liberty, independence, humanity, civilization, whiteness from a suppressed and subjugated blackness. Persuasive the first time, persuasive now. Elides the presence/influence/enforced absence of American Indians a bit, though; would like to find a follow-up on that.
