Summary
Poetic sketches and stories stemming from the Harlem Renaissance author's teaching experience in rural Georgia communicate his feelings about nature's beauty and man's greed and bigotry
Amazon.com description: Product Description:

"[Cane] has been reverberating in me to an astonishing degree. I love it passionately; could not possibly exist without it." ―Alice Walker

A literary masterpiece of the Harlem Renaissance, Cane is a powerful work of innovative fiction evoking black life in the South. The sketches, poems, and stories of black rural and urban life that make up Cane are rich in imagery. Visions of smoke, sugarcane, dusk, and flame permeate the Southern landscape: the Northern world is pictured as a harsher reality of asphalt streets. Impressionistic, sometimes surrealistic, the pieces are redolent of nature and Africa, with sensuous appeals to eye and ear.
