Recovered Legacies: Authority and Identity in Early Asian American Literatureemploys contemporary and traditional readings of representative works in prose, poetry, and drama to suggest new ways of understanding and appreciating the critically fertile but underexamined body of Asian American writing from the late 1800s to the early 1960s. The essays in this volume engage this corpus-composed of multiple genres from different periods and by authors of different ethnicities-with a strong awareness of historical context and a keen sensitivity to literary form. As a collection,Recovered Legaciesre-establishes the rich and diverse literary heritage of Asian America and argues persuasively for the significance of these works to the American literary canon.
