Africanist Presence and the US Gothic


Answer these two Questions:


  1. In a short paragraph (5 sentences or so), how would you summarize Morrison's argument about American literature based on the selections assigned?

  2. Based on your answer to the above, how do you think Morrison would read Poe's "The Black Cat" or even "Masque of the Red Death?" Is there an Africanist presence in those stories? If you believe so, how does it work in the story?
