Description:New. 0786419032 About the Book Award-winning African-American...New. 0786419032 About the Book Award-winning African-American playwright August Wilson created a cultural chronicle of black America through such works as Ma Rainey? s Black Bottom, Fences, Joe Turner? s Come and Gone, The Piano Lesson, and Two Trains Running. The authentic ring of wit, anecdote, homily, and plaint proved that a self-educated Pittsburgh ghetto native can grow into a revered conduit for a century of black achievement. He forced readers and audiences to examine the despair generated by poverty and racism by exploring African-American heritage and experiences over the course of the twentieth century. This literary companion provides the reader with a source of basic data and analysis of characters, dates, events, allusions, staging strategies and themes from the work of one of America? s finest playwrights. The text opens with an annotated chronology of Wilson? s life and works, followed by his family tree. Each of the 166 encyclopedic entries that make up the body of the work combines insights from a variety of sources along with generous citations; each concludes with a selected bibliography on such relevant subjects as the blues, Malcolm X, irony, roosters, and Gothic mode. Charts elucidate the genealogies of Wilson? s characters, the Charles, Hedley, and Maxson families, and account for weaknesses in Wilson? s female characters. Two appendices complete the generously cross-referenced work: a timeline of events in Wilson? s life and those of his characters, and a list of 40 topics for projects, composition, and oral analysis.
