Poet and critic, David Marriott, was born and educated in England and received his Ph.D. in literature from the University of Sussex. His first book, On Black Men (Edinburgh University Press, 2000; Columbia University Press, 2000), was an interdisciplinary study of how models of selfhood come to acquire cultural recognition through the aberrant fictions of race. His second book, Haunted Life (forthcoming Rutgers University Press), extends this meditation on discourses of inwardness and the paradigmatic aberrations of race into a comparative study of black atlantic modernism. Incognegro (Salt Publications, 2006) is his most recent book of poetry. His present project, The Two Freedoms, is a critical study of C.L.R. James and Jules Marcel Monnerot.
