The most influential East-West artistic, cultural, and literary exchange that has taken place in modern and postmodern times was the reading and writing of haiku. Here, esteemed contributors investigate the impact of Eastern philosophy and religion on African American writers such as Richard Wright, Ralph Ellison, and Toni Morrison, offering a fresh field of literary inquiry.

MEDIA REVIEWS

" Cross-Cultural Visions in African American Literature: West Meets East is a fresh approach to an important, though little studied, aspect of African American literature. It examines how Eastern philosophy and literary assumptions have affected the work of a number of important black American writers, including Richard Wright, Ralph Ellison, Sonia Sanchez, James Emanuel, Ishmael Reed, and Charles Johnson." - Robert Butler, author of Contemporary African American Fiction: The Open Journey
