Go Tell It On The Mountain. James Baldwin.

Go Tell It On The Mountain

United States: Signet Books, 1963. -. Fourth printing, June, 1963. Paperback. "Mountain," Baldwin said, "is the book I had to write if I was ever going to write anything else." Go Tell It On The Mountain, first published in 1953, is Baldwin's first major work, a novel that has established itself as an American classic. With lyrical precision, psychological directness, resonating symbolic power, and a rage that is at once unrelenting and compassionate, Baldwin chronicles a fourteen-year-old boy's discovery of the terms of his identity as the stepson of the minister of a storefront Pentecostal church in Harlem one Saturday in March of 1935. Baldwin's rendering of his protagonist's spiritual, sexual, and moral struggle of self-invention opened new possibilities in the American language and in the way Americans understand themselves. In pictorial wraps. Light toning to page edges. | 191 pages | Mass market paperback. Very Good / -. Item #A400244
