A clear overview and analysis of James Baldwin's life and work. This study provides an engaging overview and clear analysis of the fiction, non-fiction and drama of African- American writer James Baldwin (1924-1987). Whilst giving close attention to Baldwin's popular works such as Go Tell it on the Mountain and Another Country, it also explores other important but less well known themes and texts, including the use of the blues, masculinity, race, and sexuality.show more
