Empire of Ruin

Black Classicism and American Imperial Culture

John Levi Barnard

  • Advances a new theory of "black classicism"
  • Considers the function of classicism within American culture at large and reads black classicism as part of a larger critique of that culture
  • Argues that classicism functions as a "language of power" and is itself central to the cultural hegemony that underlies and authorizes the regime of oppression and enslavement
