Example text

In this passage from “The Novel as a Function of American Democracy,” Ellison describes the development of the American vernacular in more detail. Notice how his emphases and metaphors differ from Dewey’s: 24 democratic symbolic action In this country there is no absolute separation of groups. The American language, this rich, marvelous, relatively unexplored organ, is the creation of many, many people, and it began with the Indians. . We forget, conveniently sometimes, that the language we speak is not English, although it is based on English.

Interestingly, Williams sounds most like Ellison when he is speci¤cally drawing on Dewey’s work, as in the following, from a 1944 letter to Horace Gregory: “There has to be a recognition by the intellectual heads (Eliot among them) of the work-a-day local culture of the United States. In fact, there can be no general culture unless it is bedded, as he says, in a locality—something I have been saying for a generation: that there is no universal except in the local. I myself took it from Dewey.

Here we are again—on the symbolic ground where pragmatism and jazz interact, where the African American re®ects, rede¤nes, realigns, refracts the “American” in that territory that Ellison would map in such detail. Yet, with Williams, nagging questions remain. ” is not a gesture of solidarity with men who have been “treated like dogs” and ¤gured as “boys” but merely—or even partly—a Maileresque romanticization of black masculinity? —to begin with. There’s the old, tiresome and at bottom snobbish literary assumption that the Negro in America is an exotic bloom.
