Notes

General Note
"The restored text, established by The Library of America."
General Note
"The text as restored by The Library of America was published in 1991 in a volume entitled Richard Wright: early works, that also included Lawd today! and Uncle Tom's children"--T.p. verso.
Description
Right from the start, Bigger Thomas had been headed for jail. It could have been for assault or petty larceny; by chance, it was for murder and rape. Native Son tells the story of this young black man caught in a downward spiral after he kills a young white woman in a brief moment of panic. Set in Chicago in the 1930s, Richard Wright's novel is just as powerful today as when it was written -- in its reflection of poverty and hopelessness, and what it means to be black in America.
