"In Shadowing Ralph Ellision, John Wright traces Ellison's intellectual and aesthetic development and the evolution of his cultural philosophy throughout his long career. The book explores Ellison's published fiction, his criticism and correspondence, and his passionate exchanges with - and impact on - other literary intellectuals during the Cold War 1950s and during the culture wars of the 1960s, 1970s, and 1980s."--Jacket.
