An African-American author, essayist and political activist, Charles W. Chesnutt is best known for his novels and short stories exploring complex issues of racial and social identity in the post-Civil War South. Today, Chesnutt is recognised as a major innovator in the tradition of Afro American fiction, who was an important contributor to the deromanticizing of post-Civil War southern literature and a singular voice among turn-of-the-century realists to depict the color line in American life. This eBook presents Chesnutt’s complete published works, with numerous illustrations, rare texts, informative introductions and the usual Delphi bonus material. (Version 1)
