Annotation

Influence study focusing on Anderson’s Dark Laughter (1925) and Hemingway’s The Torrents of Spring. Wright-Cleveland contends that Hemingway’s satiric treatment of Anderson’s racial stereotyping exposes the absurdity of Anderson’s flawed views on white privilege and superiority. Concludes that Anderson’s misunderstanding of the connection between blackness and whiteness influenced later writers such as Hemingway, Faulkner, and Toomer to redefine the pivotal role of race in the formation of American identity.
