  • Character analyses of major players

Classic literature or modern modern-day treasure — you'll understand it all with expert information and insight from CliffsNotes study guides.

Synopsis:

<p><b>Black Boy</b>, an autobiography of the author's boyhood, explores the theory of human behavior determined by environment. Richard Wright's novel is profoundly American by being a distinctly African-American chronicle. What makes the book unique is its tone, which is that of the blues, both lyrical and ironic, and yet purely tragic.</p>

<p><i>Please note that this CliffsNote does not cover Wright's </i>American Hunger<i>, the 1977 sequel to </i>Black Boy<i>.<br><br>
