Reading Group Guide

"[A] vastly ambitious informing allegory, an allegory made rich, as in Invisible man, with the sensory details of which Ellison was such a master."  -The New York Review of Books

"[A] stunning achievement.... Juneteenth is a tour de force of untutored eloquence.  Ellison sought no less than to create a Book of Blackness, a literary composition of the tradition at its most sublime and fundamental."  -Henry Louis Gates, Jr., Time  

"Juneteenth...threatens to come as close as any since Huckleberry Finn to grabbing the ring of the great American Novel."  -Los Angeles Times

"Review" by , "The book has moments of magnificence, and throughout, one feels the presence of Ellison's moral intelligence, his refined lucidity, his ambition and clean sensibility. But as a "novel" it barely exists: it is technically unconvincing, its premises are unearned, its scenes bleed into one another. It palpably lacks its own hinterland – presumably the hundreds of pages that were to prepare and follow this strand in Ellison's epic plan. Yet, painful to say, even as a passage of writing it is frequently flawed: it is too often homiletic, sentimental, and rhetorical." (read the entire New Republic review here)
