    Jean Toomer’s Cane elucidates the complicated racial plight of early twentieth century America. His assumably conscientious attempt to consider a social panacea is belied only by the appearance that the entire work fails to provide any direct solution to the modern experience. There exists, however, a referential significance that realigns his project with messages of Sherwood Anderson’s Winesburg, Ohio, an earlier work from the modernist canon. A close reading of Cane’s structure and thematic

It is a time of mergings, of vagueness and ambiguity, when an end and a beginning change places. The sun steps aside and lets the moon and stars take over for a while. As the most pervasive image in the first section of Jean Toomer's Cane, it is the time of day when "[t]he sky, lazily disdaining to pursue/The setting sun, too indolent to hold/
