Synopsis

James Baldwin by Prof. Harold Bloom

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.
