Event Description:
A study of race and sexuality and their interdependencies in American literature from 1945 to 1955, Desegregating Desire, by Lehman Professor Tyler Schmidt, examines varied strategies used by eight American poets and novelists to integrate sexuality into their respective depictions of desegregated places and emergent identities in the aftermath of World War II. The book is organized around four pairs of writers: Elizabeth Bishop and Zora Neale Hurston; Gwendolyn Brooks and Edwin Denby; Ann Petry and William Demby; and novelists Jo Sinclair and Carl Offord.
