Overview

Mr. Baldwin, I Presume: James Baldwin - Chinua Achebe: A Meeting of the Minds / Edition 1

This book is a study of James Baldwin and Chinua Achebe, the two most prominent black writers of the twentieth century. Although other books have addressed their individual works, this is the first to make the connection between the two. The author provides a solid critical examination of Baldwin's and Achebe's writings and argues that there exists a remarkable similarity of thought in the struggle against colonialism in Africa and slavery and racism in America. This book gives refreshingly new insight into the works of two of the great black writers of our century and will be beneficial to students of African and Afro-American literature, as well as to the general public.
