Beschreibung

The Turn to the Native is a long-awaited assessment of Native American studies by one of its leading practitioners. Learned and passionate, the book is a timely account of Native American literature and the critical writings that have grown up around it. It is also a polemical intervention by a critic with abiding loyalties to Native American culture and to the Western intellectual heritage that has often been seen as hostile to Native culture and society.

Portrait

Arnold Krupat, a professor of literature at Sarah Lawrence College, is the author of "Ethnocriticism: Ethnography, History, Literature."

Pressestimmen

"(Krupat shows) skill in deepening the meanings of contemporary Native American texts by extrapolating themes from specific stories.... Through his flashes of critical acumen, he himself is able to tell a good story as well." -- Boston Book Review
