The humbling experience of reading diversely

One thought on “The humbling experience of reading diversely”

  1. Yes, literature offers the unique opportunity to explore the margins which we otherwise cannot see by giving voice to the silenced. Modern/contemporary American literature is especially poliphonic. That’s why I value it so much (I majored in it at uni).

    Invisible Man by Ralph Ellison
    Sula by Tony Morrison
    House Made of Dawn by N.S. Momaday
    Their Eyes Were Watching God by Zola Neale Hurston

    These books and others still echo in my mind. I wouldn’t be who I am if not for them! Good luck with your project! I will try to follow more actively.
