Dissident Subcultures and Universal Dissidence

Dissident Subcultures and Universal Dissidence in Imamu Amiri Baraka’s Selected Literary Works

This dissertation is the study of Amiri Baraka’s identity formation and the analysis of his selected literary works (poetry, drama, and fiction) including Transbluesency, Somebody Blew up America and Other Poems, Dutchman, The Slave, Experimental Death Unit 1, A Black Mass, Great Goodness of Life, The System of Dante’s Hell, and Tales of the Out and the Gone under the light of Political Criticism and Cultural Materialism. The researcher puts Baraka’s literary works within material contexts, such as historical, social, cultural, and political contexts, in order to argue that his literary texts are entangled with repressive and dominant ideologies like Neo-Colonialism, Capitalism, and Imperialism. This research attempts to scrutinize the notions of Althusser’s ideology, Sinfield’s dissidence, Foucault’s power, the possibilities of resistance, and subversion against the Western/White dominant power in Baraka’s major literary works. The main focus of this dissertation is on two terms, “dissident subculture” and “universal dissidence.” Political Criticism and Cultural Materialism provide an opportunity to find a formidable relationship between “race” and “class” issues with their focus on “dissidence,” which has been avoided so far in the critical studies of Baraka. The dynamics of the relationship between White and Black Americans, in the contemporary U.S.A., made Baraka’s literary works (produced through nearly five decades) appropriate texts of art for the political study of the notion of dissidence or the possibility of resistance. There are also contradictions within Baraka’s literary texts in that they extend the borders of the dominant powers such as Capitalism and Imperialism. Baraka’s literary characters attempt to gain power and insights into the experiences of the “dissidence,” however, these experiences lead them to reassess their own paradoxical situations. The researcher focuses on Baraka’s language and attempts to demonstrate that the structure of his texts deconstructs the conventions of prose or poetry writing. This research scrutinizes the hidden power structures and meanings, through revealing the negative role of the dominant ideology in identity formation of Black or the oppressed individuals. The researcher suggests that subcultures constitute consciousness; it is an opposing force which contains awareness and fights for its existence. The central argument of the present study is to demonstrate that “dissidence” has been formed within Black subcultures or in “universal dissidence.” Universal dissidence is the ultimate and perfect shape of “dissident subcultures.” In short, dissidence is the product of being within a subculture or a universal dissidence.
