Description:
Pittsburgh: Carnegie-Mellon University Press, 1980. First edition. Fine.. First printing of Dove's first book-length publication - a fresh, beautiful copy. Only 28 when this book was published, Dove weaves the weight of her research into African-American history with her contemporary experiences as a Black woman, including as a Fullbright scholar at the University of Tübingen. "In her experiments with form, Dove condenses contemporary experience into mythic intensity, examining how myth shades off into folklore and fairy tale, the potent cultural narratives that inhabit us in childhood, adolescence, and beyond" (Righelato & Dewey). Decidedly uncommon in this condition. 8.5'' x 5.5''. Original photographic wrappers, with portrait of Dove by Fred Viebahn. 71, [1] pages. Trace shelfwear. Else clean, bright, and sharp overall.
