Description

Having true international appeal, James Baldwin was as well known in Istanbul and Paris as he was in Harlem. His reputation was made on incendiary and eloquent essays written and published to mass acclaim in the late 1950s and early 1960s as well as a trio of early novels dealing with racism, sexuality, violence, and religion. Among his lauded works are ""Go Tell It on the Mountain"", ""Notes of a Native Son"", and the controversial ""Giovanni's Room."" Students will benefit from this updated volume from the Bloom's ""Modern Critical Views"" series; it provides an academic yet accessible overview of this boundary-breaking writer that is ideal for research papers.

Review quote

"The accounts offer students an opportunity to absorb serious analytical styles." ..."excellent critical guide sets edited by Harold Bloom...recommended picks for audiences of young adults studying literature." "A publishing venture almost without precedent both in its scope and in the fact that it is guided by a single critical intelligence." "This collection of previously published essays, edited by the distinguished literary scholar Harold Bloom, is an excellent addition to the Wells critical canon." "Harold Bloom adds some fantastic critical literary guides, providing interpretations and issues that should reach a wide audience from adults to young adults at the high school and college levels."
