Abstract or Summary
  • This thesis discusses the African American authors Richard Wright and James Baldwin, and their views regarding how literature should be written. These views are examined as laid out in a selection of each author‟s essays, as well as through an analysis of the characters Bigger Thomas and Rufus Scott in the respective novels Native Son by Wright and Another Country by Baldwin. Through this examination of both non-fiction and fiction, the closeness of the relationship between these two authors can be seen. Despite the authors‟ differences in opinion about literature, Wright set up a foundation with Native Son which Baldwin then built on in Another Country, using similar methods of characterization but ultimately diverging from the sociological focus of Wright.
