Book Description Brill, Netherlands, 2007. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. Coinciding with the preparations for the celebration in 2008 of Richard Wright s 100th birthday, this new collection of critical essays on Native Son attests to the importance and endurance of Wright s controversial work. The eleven essays collected in this volume engage the objective of Rodopi s Dialogue Series by creating multidirectional conversations in which senior and younger scholars interact with each other and with previous scholars who have weighed in on the novel s import. Speaking from distant corners of the world, the contributors to this book reflect an international interest in Wright s unique combination of literary strategies and social aims. The wide range of approaches to Native Son is presented in five thematic sections. The first three sections cover aspects such as the historical reception of Wright s novel, the inscription of sex and gender both in Native Son and in other African American texts, and the influence of Africa and of vortical symbolism on Wright s aesthetics; following is the study of the novel from the point of view of its adoption and transformation of various literary genres-the African American jeremiad, the protest novel, the crime novel and courtroom drama, the Bildungsroman, and the Biblical modes of narration. The closing section analyzes the novel s lasting influence through its adaptation to other artistic fields, such as the cinema and song in the form of hip-hop. The present volume may, therefore, be of interest for students who are not very familiar with Wright s classic text as well as for scholars and Richard Wright specialists.
