Pressestimmen

"Before he was 40, Wright dominated literary America, publishing four books in seven years, each a triumph in its genre. His first novel, Native Son (1940), sold at the rate of 2,000 copies a day, making Wright the first best-selling black writer in the country's history. Black Boy (1945), his memoir of his Southern childhood, was a bigger success, selling more than a half-million copies" New York Times "A compelling indictment of life in the Deep South between the wars" Daily Telegraph "An angry chronicle of a bright black rebel growing up in the Jim Crow southlands: a landmark in the literature of Black America" The Times -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine andere Ausgabe: Taschenbuch .

Einleitungssatz
One winter morning in the long-ago, four-year-old days of my life I found myself standing before a fireplace, warming my hands over a mound of glowing coals, listening to the wind whistle past the house outside. Lesen Sie die erste Seite

Format: Taschenbuch
I recently read Black Boy by Richard Wright and I must say it is an amazing book. The book is about Richard growing up in the South in the early 1900's. It may sound a little boring but believe me it's not. Richard had a hard life growing up and that's what makes the book so interesting. Burning up houses, killing cats, and becoming a drunk were just some of the things he did before reaching the age of eight. The thing I like most about him is how he grew up very poor, moved from place to place, including an orphanage, never completed two consecutive school years, and still managed to become a well-educated young man and a world-famous writer. Although the book was very interesting there were some parts at the end that I felt were a little boring, but maybe that's just me. Either way, I think Richard Wright was a very talented writer, and if you get the chance, you should read his autobiography, Black Boy. I recommend this book to anyone over the age of thirteen that is interested in learning about history or just likes to read about some hardships other people had to face growing up.

Format: Taschenbuch
Black Boy is about pain, hunger, and deprivation. For because of the white man, Richard is hungry, lost, and insecure. But the most important message of Black Boy is the deprivation of human existence that all blacks had to endure at that time. Richard's words are very insightful, because they question the same establishment and the same white race that burns the vessels on which racial equality floats today. Black Boy is again a reminder of our civic duty to defy racism in our euphoric state of justice, and save the lives of countless victims of white greed, including Leonard Peltier and Mumia Abu-Jamal.

I emphatically recommend Richard Wright's Black Boy to all mature audiences. It would be pretense for any reader of this incredible autobiography to speak of anything less than being riveted by such an extraordinary account of southern America in the early twentieth century. In Richard Wright's Black Boy, readers can learn more about the effects that America's enthralling treatment of African Americans had on the country in Jim Crow south. Richard Wright's life experiences in Black Boy will give readers a predilection towards other American historical autobiographies, as well.

Von Orrin C. Judd am 3. Februar 2000
Format: Taschenbuch
Nothing in the following should be taken to in any way minimize the horrors and degradation of racism. However, while Richard Wright's classic account of his upbringing in the Jim Crow South remains a powerful indictment of a system of repression and dehumanization which indelibly stain's this great nation's history, the book is somehow simply not a compelling text. Wright never really engages the reader emotionally nor wins our empathy. It's, thus, seems more important as a historical document than central to the Western Canon.
The primary reason for this is that Richard Wright, as he portrays himself in the book, is just an *expletive deleted*. And while it is certainly legitimate to argue that he is merely a creation of the malignant system of segregation and racial hatred, the history of the South and of other racist regimes (i.e., Nazi Germany) suggest that he is not an inevitable product of the system. The Richard Wright that he presents is so brutal, bitter and hate filled, that he is impossible to care about. He stands in stark contrast to the many still generous, hope filled, decent people who emerged from this same oppression (or others like it); people whose positive vision and dream of freedom brought down Jim Crow within a generation.
Moreover, he compares unfavorably to the survivors of the Death Camps and the Gulag and the other heinous criminal enterprises of the century, who emerged from experiences that were at least as brutal and seemingly soul deadening to produce a body of literature that is instead life affirming.

Black Boy
Black Boy by Richard Wright is a book that really brings out the conflicts between blacks and whites in the South. Wright shows these conflicts through the eyes of his youth. Richard Wright's plot, storytelling pace, setting and dialogue, writing style and tone, and the ending both appeal and don't appeal to me. I personally don't like the plot because Wright emphasizes a young boy's struggle with white people. For example, Wright goes from job to job where he faces problems of racism. At each job he has to obey his bosses. In one instance, his white boss made him even fight with a fellow black man for show. The plot just keeps going on about his numerous jobs and how gets in trouble with the white folk. Therefore, I don't particularly care for the plot. The storytelling pace is too slow and harsh for me. In every chapter he has a new job or he is moving. Wright even quotes, "My days in my life are just dripping by." This quote really sets the pace of the entire book. For this reason, I don't like slow-moving books. Setting and atmosphere were two things that kept me interested. I liked the fact that there were many interesting places that shaped the story. The atmosphere was very tense, which I really focused on and liked. All over the state of Mississippi the story shows many difficult racial situations. These situations really keep me wanting to read. The characters and dialogue are beautifully written, too. Wright's description of people catch my attention like a fly to sweet-smelling trash. For instance, Wright describes his "Granny" as "old, white, wrinkled, grim face, framed by a halo of tumbling black hair". "Granny" acts like a religious slave-beater because she always talking about church, but will beat the life out of Richard.
