    Citizen

    Claudia Rankine’s book recounts mounting racial aggressions in ongoing encounters in 21st century daily life and in the media. The accumulative stresses come to bear on a person’s ability to speak, perform and stay alive. Our addressability is tied to the state of our belonging, Rankine argues, as are our assumptions and expectations of citizenship. In essays, images, and poetry, ‘Citizen’ is a powerful testament to the individual and collective effects of racism in our contemporary, ‘post-race’ society.

    The Marlowe Papers

    In 1593, a celebrated young playwright was killed in a tavern brawl in London. That, at least, was the official version.
