Originally published in 1955, James Baldwin's first nonfiction book has become a classic. These searing essays on life in Harlem, the protest novel, movies, and Americans abroad remain as powerful today as when they were written. "He named for me the things you feel but couldn't utter. . . . Jimmy's essays articulated for the first time to white America what it meant to be American and a black American at the same time."… (mais)

I just cannot easily put myself in the position of James Baldwin. He can explain, and he tries hard to explain the feeling of rejection that he received from the white dominated society that he grew up in. But, I can't find more than an explanation, there is not an emotional connection here. But, that said, if you are looking for the result of North American society that has through neglect, and positive oppression damaged about thirteen (by present figures (2020) percent of its own people, here is a look at such a mind.. It is not a great deal of fun to read this collection of essays, but it is necessary. ( )

I thought there were some good points made, but overall I just don't feel like this will stick with me? And I'm really sad about that - I was hoping James Baldwin's writing would work for me similar to the way Audre Lorde's did. ( )

This should probably get five stars, but I read Fire Next Time right before it, and Notes isn’t quite as good. ( )

Where to begin? I do not feel qualified to review this book. Why did I give it four stars? The writing was excellent. Baldwin says what most people cannot articulate. As a white, middle aged, middle class woman who has grown up and lived in rural America with very little exposure to other races, this was hard to swallow. However, like bitter medicine that one takes because it will cure you, I was glad to read it.

These are essays, memoirs of a sort, which detail the Negro experience in America in the early 1900s. It is not pretty. It is not easy reading, but it is an exploration of what constant degradation does to the soul. I wept. My heart breaks, and I am anguished that in spite of the many practical changes in our society such as integration and equal opportunity laws, there is still the undercurrent of hatred and distrust. One can change the circumstances, and one should, but who can mend the heart? ( )

James Baldwin writes down to nobody, and he is trying very hard to write up to himself. As an essayist he is thought-provoking, tantalizing, irritating, abusing and amusing. And he uses words as the sea uses waves, to flow and beat, advance and retreat, rise and take a bow in disappearing. ... Few American writers handle words more effectively in the essay form than James Baldwin. To my way of thinking, he is much better at provoking thought in the essay than he is arousing emotion in fiction. I much prefer "Notes of a Native Son" to his novel, "Go Tell It on the Mountain," where the surface excellence and poetry of his writing did not seem to me to suit the earthiness of his subject matter. In his essays, words and material suit each other. The thought becomes poetry, and the poetry illuminates the thought.

The collected "pieces" of the author of Go Tell It on the Mountain form a compelling unit as he applies the high drama of poetry and sociology to a penetrating analysis of the Negro experience on the American and European scene. ... The expression of so many insights enriches rather than clarifies, and behind every page stalks a man, an everyman, seeking his identity...and ours. Exceptional writing.

In Uncle Tom's Cabin, that cornerstone of American social protest fiction, St. Claare, the kindly master, remarks to his coldly disapproving Yankee cousin, Miss Ophelia, that, so far as he is able to tell, the blacks have been turned over to the devil for the benefit of the whites in this world - however, he adds thoughtfull, it may turn out in the next.
