From reviews of the hardcover edition:

“A stunning critical achievement. . . . Baker explores in fine and splendid detail the dialectic between self and other, rhetoric and representation, ‘high’ theory and the Black vernacular, to chart the evolution of Afro-American literary criticism since 1970.”—Henry Louis Gates Jr, Harvard University

“Baker’s is a fascinating portrait of the literary critic as blues artist, reconstructing the products of two amazingly fruitful decades of engagement with Afro-American expressive culture in illuminating autobiographical examinations of his own—and indeed, Afro-American criticism’s—momentous changes over that period of time.”—Michael Awkward, University of Michigan

“Readers who do not know much about black American literature would learn a great deal from Afro-American Poetics; those who do would be further enlightened.”—Peter Nazareth, World Literature Today

“For this student of black literature, the final impact of Afro-American Poetics is overwhelming.  We now have the beginnings of a superstructure upon which to gauge individual pieces of black literature.”—Eugene Kraft, Callaloo
