Facts on File

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. James Baldwin, Updated Edition features an editor's note and introduction by Harold Bloom, who offers his own unique insights on the author and the critical essays included. A helpful chronology tracing the seminal events in Baldwin's life, and information on the renowned critics whose essays have been selected add further depth. Students will find that this completely updated study in the acclaimed Bloom's Modern Critical Views series is especially useful for essays and research papers.
