Collected essays

James Baldwin (Author)
This book offers a comprehensive gathering of Baldwin's nonfiction works that articulate issues of race, democracy, and American identity. His landmark collections Notes of a Native Son and Nobody Knows My Name fuse the personal, literary, and the political. The classic The Fire Next Time provides an analysis of America's racial divide and No Name in The Street and The Devil Finds Work chart his continuing response to the social and political turbulence of his era. Thirty-six additional essays record insights into the language of Shakespeare, the poetry of Langston Hughes, the music of Earl Hines, and more. -- From publisher description
