21. The author of the passage objects to criticism of Black fiction like that by Addison Gayle because it

Consider this from the passage: Addison Gayle's recent work, for example, judges the value of Black fiction by overtly political standards

(D) substitutes political for literary criteria in evaluating such fiction - Only this resembles the meaning.

Answer D

23. The author of the passage believes that Black Fiction would have been improved had Rosenblatt

From the passage: Black Fiction does leave some aesthetic questions open. Rosenblatt's thematic analysis permits its considerable objectivity; he even explicitly states that it is not his intention to judge the merit of the various works yet his reluctance seems misplaced, especially since an attempt to appraise might have led to interesting results.

From the highlighted part, it is clear that choice E is the answer.

(E) assessed the relative literary merit of the novels he analyzes thematically

Answer E

Rosenblatt's literary analysis discloses affinities and connections among works of Black fiction which solely political studies have overlooked or ignored.

Thematically means that you put highlighted the various interconnections or the underlined affinity among different elements. Maybe these interconnections are not so evident to the few
