  • Mô tả: In this analysis, Birmingham says that something happened to James Baldwin. In an authorial swerve after "The Fire Next Time," Baldwin seemed to abandon the literary promise of "Go Tell It on the Mountain" and produce increasingly blunt, polemical essays and fiction until his writing committed all of the artistic errors he decried in "Everybody's Protest Novel," the essay that launched his career. His writing became sentimental. It abjured the complexities of the private life and traded ambiguity for glib ideological platforms. Whether or not we evaluate Baldwin's later work as a period of decline, the trajectory of his career was not a reversal. In fact, Baldwin's radicalism descended directly from his aesthetics. Even if it did nothing else, Baldwin's career as an essayist would be crucial for its representation of the broad cultural exchange between ethnicity and aesthetics, cultural identity and cultural value, burgeoning in the United States in the decades following World War II.
