SUMMARY

An important collection of short stories by one of the first African American masters of the genre. Unlike the popular "Uncle Remus" stories of Joel Chandler Harris, "The Conjure Woman" and the other tales collected in this volume probe psychological depths of black people in a manner unprecedented at that time. They also expose the anguish of mixed-race men and women and the consequences of racial hatred, mob violence, and moral compromise. This wonderful collection contains all the stories in Chesnutt's two published volumes, The Conjure Woman and The Wife of His Youth, along with two uncollected works: the tragic "Dave's Neckliss" and "Baxter's Procrustes," Chesnutt's parting shot at prejudice.Chesnutt, Charles Waddell is the author of 'Conjure Tales and Stories of the Color Line', published 2000 under ISBN 9780141185026 and ISBN 0141185023.
