Richard Wright: Early Works

Lawd Today! | Uncle Tom’s Children | Native Son
Edited by Arnold Rampersad

“With the appearance of the two-volume Richard Wright: Works, published by The Library of America and edited and annotated by Arnold Rampersad, we have a new opportunity to assess Wright’s formidable and lasting contribution to American literature. But this time we have texts intended as the author originally wished them to be read. The works that millions know are, as it turns out, expurged and abbreviated versions of what Wright submitted for publication.” — Charles Johnson, The Chicago Tribune
