The remarkably complex romance in which Du Bois confronted the twentieth century world that had closed itself to people of color
Posted January 20, 2011
This book is a disappointment. I expected more because of the author. "The Souls of Black Folk" is one of the greatest pieces of African American Literature. W. E. B. DuBois is one of the greatest intellectuals in world history. Yet, this novel is not a success. The plot does not flow. Instead, it jumps around. DuBois tries to mix politics, intrigue and romance, but he fails. He crams too much into a badly written love story. I do not recommend this book. I would not recommend it to DuBois disciples.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
