Jean Toomer Notes I. There was no real word for what Cane did. a. people called it a novel for lack of a better word. b. It acted more as a collection of short stories, but it was too unified to be referred  to as such. i. One of the things that unifies Cane is the narrator. 1. There is a primary or central narrator through all the vignettes who  observes all of the different characters that populate Cane. a. Who is the narrator? A lot of Toomer c. Female characters become muses in his art i. Projection of the narrator onto the character, and these projections reflect  back onto the nature of the narrator himself. d. There seems to be a primal beat that runs behind the prose itself. II. Toomer deconstructs the idea of race a. It’s hard to figure out how he defined himself or how he identified himself. b. He identified himself as both white and black. i. he began to fall back on the idea that he wasn’t a part of any race. III. Major theme in Cane: race and its construction, its definition, and all of its  ramifications. IV. He tries to hit on dialect, on how Southern African Americans would speak. a. DuBois would not have liked this because he would’ve felt like hew was  portraying a stereotypical character. b. When does realism become a stereotype? V. “Fern” as a conceit for America a. Mobile rivers b. “She became a virgin” i. There’s this perception that virginity is the ideal, but Toomer counters it  with the reality. ii. She became a virgin in the imaginations of these men VI. Sexuality is violent a. With these men who compete for Louisa, often it ends in violence. VII. Bob can’t reconcile his racism with his attraction to Louisa.
