Summary :

In this collection of short stories, character sketches, poems, and songs, Toomer records the life of the poor black in Georgia. He shows how the soil, the scent of cane, and the Georgia dusk are regenerators and nurturers of the African American soul while the want of money, material positions, and sex are elements that can unbalance the soul and cause destruction. Cane is beautifully lyrical, and the language has meaning on so many different levels.
