More Description

..." creates a new definition of American Indian literary texts as a self-representational genre. This is an intelligent and insightful application of post-modern critical methods to American Indian texts. The scope of the study is broad and ambitious, and the attempt to define Indian self-representations from colonial times to the present is innovative and instructive." --Raymond J. DeMallie

..." very suggestive, provocative, engaging... --Studies in American Indian Literatures

..." Murray's book establishes itself as the single best introduction to Native American text-making in particular and the betrayals of the translation in general. An essential acquisition for all college and university libraries, and highly recommended for larger public libraries." --Choice

"It is a pleasure to recommend with wholehearted enthusiasm David Murray's Forked Tongues." --Western American Literature
