Originally published in 1955, James Baldwin's first nonfiction book has become a classic. These searing essays on life in Harlem, the protest novel, movies, and Americans abroad remain as powerful today as when they were written.

Painful truths.
  Elizabeth80 | Sep 15, 2021 |
Part of my experience in life has been the slow, intentional process of assembling myself into someone I can live with. "Doing the work of being (and becoming) human," so to speak... and if humanity has anything going for it, anything at all, it's that we have writers like Baldwin.

There's a lot here. The first couple of these essays is a critique and analysis of some contemporary media, and I can appreciate Baldwin's arguments despite unfamiliarity with some of the reviewed films, books, etc. I'll have to return again when I've worked my through them.

The second half, however? These essays/memoirs are visceral, at times incredibly personal, insightful or inciting. Bits and pieces call back to Go Tell it on the Mountain, or show the foundation of later essays. All of them vividly express lived experience.

I do my best to read closely. ( )

There are some really good essays in here (I especially liked "Stranger in the Village," "Journey to Atlanta," and the title essay), but there's enough here that's pinned to specific details (e.g. magazines or newspapers) of the time and place in which they were written that my interest wasn't always maxed out.

I just cannot easily put myself in the position of James Baldwin. He can explain, and he tries hard to explain the feeling of rejection that he received from the white dominated society that he grew up in. But, I can't find more than an explanation, there is not an emotional connection here. But, that said, if you are looking for the result of North American society that has through neglect, and positive oppression damaged about thirteen (by present figures (2020) percent of its own people, here is a look at such a mind.. It is not a great deal of fun to read this collection of essays, but it is necessary. ( )

James Baldwin writes down to nobody, and he is trying very hard to write up to himself. As an essayist he is thought-provoking, tantalizing, irritating, abusing and amusing. And he uses words as the sea uses waves, to flow and beat, advance and retreat, rise and take a bow in disappearing. ... Few American writers handle words more effectively in the essay form than James Baldwin. To my way of thinking, he is much better at provoking thought in the essay than he is arousing emotion in fiction. I much prefer "Notes of a Native Son" to his novel, "Go Tell It on the Mountain," where the surface excellence and poetry of his writing did not seem to me to suit the earthiness of his subject matter. In his essays, words and material suit each other. The thought becomes poetry, and the poetry illuminates the thought.

The collected "pieces" of the author of Go Tell It on the Mountain form a compelling unit as he applies the high drama of poetry and sociology to a penetrating analysis of the Negro experience on the American and European scene. ... The expression of so many insights enriches rather than clarifies, and behind every page stalks a man, an everyman, seeking his identity...and ours. Exceptional writing.

In Uncle Tom's Cabin, that cornerstone of American social protest fiction, St. Clare, the kindly master, remarks to his coldly disapproving Yankee cousin, Miss Ophelia, that, so far as he is able to tell, the blacks have been turned over to the devil for the benefit of the whites in this world - however, he adds thoughtfully, it may turn out in the next.
[Introduction] I did not know James Baldwin the essayist before my first year of college.
[Preface to the 1984 Edition] It was Sol Stein, high school buddy, editor, novelist, playwright, who first suggested this book.
