Double-Consciousness/Double Bind

Theoretical Issues in Twentieth-Century Black Literature

"'It is a peculiar sensation, this double consciousness, this sense of always looking at one's self through the eyes of others.' For Adell, W. E. B. Du Bois's famous articulation of the 'twoness' of black Americans is the key to understanding the 'double bind' which afflicts contemporary African-American literary theory. . . . [The book] demands and deserves recognition as a cogent intervention." -- Yearbook of English Studies
