Abstract

Often seen as an outlier of the Harlem Renaissance, George Schuyler cannot be reduced to a mere cultural or political anomaly but instead illustrates the breadth and range of the movement. This chapter traces Schuyler's periodical writings and novel Black No More to examine satire as a mode of literary iconoclasm.
