Product Description
Considering James Baldwin’s views on conventional protest literature expressed in his essay, “Everybody’s Protest Novel” (Uncle Tom’s Cabin and Native Son in particular), a question arises as to how Baldwin’s own plays and fiction should be understood – as protest literature, as political statement, or as an artist’s a-political attempt to fully express the human experience?

This resource offers a lecture/essay helping students to examine Baldwin's fiction and drama, particularly BLUES FOR MISTER CHARLIE in light of his essay on protest literature - and to consider for themselves the nature and aims of protest literature.

Additional quotations are included from critical sources for further use in class discussion, debate, or writing assignments.
