    Paperback ☆ Native Son ePUB ↠ native free, Native Son PDF/EPUBMy older brother Larry who is extremely well read recently came to town for a visit He had with him a copy of Native Son I asked what prompted him to re read it He explained that he had actually never read it before which he confessed was really odd given that the book is an undisputed classic Well here is Larry's two word review of the bookHoly shitI concurThose who have studied the Harlem Renaissance know that Richard Wright was a passionate angry man the writer about whom other African American writers of his era would say Well I'd never write THAT but I'm glad someone did Native Son is a brutally frank look at the racial divide of the America of the 1940s and the relevance to today is positively painfulThere have been many profound and moving stories both true and fictionalized of young black men wrongfully accused of crimes This book dares to tell the story of a young bl

    Paperback ☆ Native Son ePUB ↠ native free, Native Son PDF/EPUBThis book is extremely powerful I saw another review saying that they could not believe this was written and released in 1940 I agree as I can only imagine how controversial the content would have been at that time And even today it touches so closely on some of the topics you see in the news everyday it's like Wright could see into the futureThe main themes in the stor

    Paperback ☆ Native Son ePUB ↠ native free, Native Son PDF/EPUB“These were the rhythms of his life indifference and violence periods of abstract brooding and periods of intense desire moments of silence and moments of anger—like water ebbing and flowing from the tug of a far away invisible force Being this way was a need of his as deep as eating He was like a strange plant blooming in the day and wilting at night but the sun that made it bloom and the cold darkness that made it wilt were never seen It was his own sun and darkness a private and personal sun and darkness” Richard Wright Native Son This story is still heavily on my mind I think if I’d read it earlier I would have reacted to it differently There is so much going on it has been hard for me to write a coherent review but I feel compelled to write down some of my thoughts regardless of how disjointed they may be The story starts off with a poor black family trying to kill a rat in their apartment it reeks of poverty from the start and quickly materializes

    Paperback ☆ Native Son ePUB ↠ native free, Native Son PDF/EPUBUpdating my shelves I read this in high school for a book report Being that I'm from the Chicago suburbs originally this was one of my first exposures to life in another part of the city and I found the book to be fascinating It would be interesting to reread it through adult eyes

    Paperback ☆ Native Son ePUB ↠ native free, Native Son PDF/EPUBOne has got to appreciate the diplomatic mincing of words that graces the GR blurb Set in Chicago in the 1930s Wright's powerful novel is an unsparing reflection on the poverty and feelings of hopelessness experienced by people in inner cities across the country and of what it means to be black in America A distinctly innocuous 'what it means to be black in America' is a nice little euphemism for 'institutionalized racism' or terminology like 'white supremacist capitalist patriarchy' which are too confrontational too accusatory too ominous sounding That America continues to practice a similar form of conscious prevarication to avoid facing the true sordidness of its race problem is in some small way responsible for this book's enduring relevance America is still bowed under the weight of its real Bigger

    Paperback ☆ Native Son ePUB ↠ native free, Native Son PDF/EPUBSPOILERS Reading the first two parts of Native Son Richard Wright's landmark novel is an absolute thrill One part Tom Ripley one part Graham Greene's Brighton Rock the antihero always reigns triumphant But this antihero lacks panache intelligence even perhaps a conscience all the character traits of a true villain So he's somewhere in between The crimes committed by the much studied much written about Bigger Thomas are heinous The character study is super taut and intense Fear Flight parts 1 2 are absolutely perfectThen the bloody politics come in The tide and tone turns radically and inexplicably The Third and longest part of Native Son aptly called Fate

    Paperback ☆ Native Son ePUB ↠ native free, Native Son PDF/EPUBA gripping naturalist novel delving into the psychological toll of racism on Black interiority There’s so much to critique about the work from its misogyny to its clunky structure but its influence and forceful condemnation of white supremacy make it still worth reading

    Paperback ☆ Native Son ePUB ↠ native free, Native Son PDF/EPUBWhat a powerful book In narrative theme character and motifs Wright uses his whole arsenal to show us the horrors of racism He seems to be able to reflect back the experience of racism—how it's created and it's cycle of destruction I've read other Black writers before but this book is probably the one that has taken on and embodied racism so than any other book for me For a novel written in 1940 the book holds up quite well Unfortunately while our nation has made progress especially some legal and institutional progress this book and the picture it paints is still quite relevant today The book is very accessible Wright's prose while rhythmic and artful is quite straightforward and easy to read I can't recommend this book enough and not just as a means to understand racism f
