The Guerilla in Literature
This chapter applies the different facets of guerilla subjectivity—resistant, anticolonial, self-defined, self-determined, ideologically grounded, revolutionary agent—to a reading of Sam Greenlee’s The Spook Who Sat by the Door (1969; 1990), Alice Walker’s Meridian (1976), and John Okada’s No-No Boy (1957; 1976). Greenlee’s novel is considered as an example of a stereotypical militant, revolutionary subjectivity. The novels by Walker and Okada are used to examine how these literary representations of the guerilla synthesize politics and aesthetics in a textual subject that complicates representations of blackness and yellowness, as well as revolution and resistance.
