Summary
  • This Norton Critical Edition of Charles W. Chesnutt's vivid, suspenseful, and character-rich novel provides readers with a full sense of its historical background and cultural impact. Inspired by the 1898 Wilmington Riot and eyewitness accounts of Chesnutt's own family, The Marrow of Tradition captures the shocking moment in American history when a violent coup d'état resulted in the subversion of a democratic election
  • The text of this Norton Critical Edition follows the 1901 first edition. It is accompanied by facsimiles of Chesnutt's plot outlines and pages of his hand-corrected proofs; his "own view'" of the novel; related essays; rarely seen letters from W.E.B. Bois, Booker T. Washington, and Walter Mines Page and to William Monroe Trotter; two dozen photographs and illustrations; and the editors in depth introduction and explanatory annotations
  • The "Contexts" section connects the novel to Wilmington's historic moment through biographical sketches of the central players and newspaper articles, among; them Rebecca Latimer Felton's incendiary speech, Alex Manly's editorial in response to Felton, and an account by riot instigator Alfred Moore Waddell. It concludes with pioneering work by Sylvia Lyons Bender and Richard Yarborough; findings of the 2006 Wilmington Riot Commission; and a poem, sheet music, and newspaper articles on the Cakewalk, a popular dance of the period that plays a significant, ironic role in the novel
  • "Criticism'' begins with such contemporary reviewers as William Dean Howells and T. Thomas Fortune and continues with scholarship by Sterling A. Brown, John Edgar Wideman, William L. Andrews, Ernestine Pickens, Brook Thomas, Jae H. Roe, and Eric Sundquist, among others
  • A Chronology and Selected Bibliography are also included
