Summary
Ishmael Reed's parody of slaveǹarrativesthec̀lassical literature of the African American traditionwhich redefined the neo-slave genre and launched a lucrative academic industry Some parodies are as necessary as the books they answer. Such is the case withF̀light to Canada, Ishmael Reed's scathing, offbeat response to conventional anti-slavery novels such asÙncle Tom's Cabin. ThoughF̀light to Canada has been classified by some as a post race" novel, thev̀illainsànd the heroes are clear. ̀Three slaves are on the run from theS̀willep̀lantation. Among them, the most hotly pursued is RavenQ̀uickskill, a poet who seeks freedom in Canada, and ultimately hopes to return and liberate others. But this particular Civil Warera landscape is littered with modern elements, from Xerox copiers to airplanes, and freely reimagines historic figures as sacred as Abraham Lincoln. A comedy flashing with insight, Flight to Canadap̀oses serious questions about history and the complex ways that race relations in America are shaped by the past. ̀̀̀ ̀Thisèbookf̀eatures an illustrated biography of Ishmael Reed including rare images of the author
