Summary
Ato Quayson uses a method of reading he calls calibrations: a reading of literature with what lies beyond it as a way of understanding structures of transformation, process, and contradiction that inform both literature and society. He surveys texts ranging from Bob Marley lyrics, Toni Morrisons work, Walter Benjamins Theses on the Philosophy of History, and Althussers reflections on political economy
