9780820481586: James Baldwin's «Go Tell It on the Mountain»: Historical and Critical Essays (Modern American Literature)

The publication of James Baldwin’s Go Tell It on the Mountain ushered in a new age of the urban telling of a tale twice told yet rarely expressed in such vivid portraits. Go Tell It unveils the struggle of man with his God and that of man with himself. Baldwin’s intense scrutiny of the spiritual and communal customs that serve as moral centers of the black community directs attention to the striking incongruities of religious fundamentalism and oppression. This book examines these multiple impulses, challenging the widely held convention that politics and religion do not mix.

From the Back Cover:

"Carol E. Henderson has gathered an impressive collection of essays written by scholars on two continents who celebrate the publication of Baldwin’s landmark novel. These essays, some written by scholars who represent the next generation of literary critics, give new interpretations of this novel and challenge the literary community to re-frame the discourse about this magnificent work and to reconsider its assessment of Baldwin as author and social critic."

Burney Hollis, Dean of Arts and Science, Morgan State University, Baltimore, Maryland
