Description

Native Americans today are best known through their fugitive poses: textual and graphic depictions steeped in a modernist aesthetic of romantic victimry, tragedy, and nostalgia. In Fugitive Poses Gerald Vizenor argues that such representations celebrate the absence rather than the presence of the Native. Ojibwe scholar Gerald Vizenor is a professor of American studies and Native American literature at the University of California, Berkeley. He is the author of more than twenty books.
