Richard Wright is one of the most important African American writers. He is also one of the most prolific. Best known as the author of Native Son, he wrote 7 novels; 2 collections of short fiction; an autobiography; more than 250 newspaper articles, book reviews, and occasional essays; some 4,000 verses; a photo-documentary; and 3 travel books. By attacking the taboos and hypocrisy that other writers had failed to address, he revolutionized American literature and created a disturbing and realistic portrait of the African American experience. This encyclopedia is a guide to his vast and influential body of works.

"In addition to all of the author's work, entries include a wide range of places, people (from Peter Abrahams and H.L. Mencken to Emile Zola), and events (including the Chicago Renaissance, the Great Depression, and the Scottsboro Trials) . . . . useful for anyone with an interest in American literature, political history, and twentieth-century cultural movements." - ARBA
"...350 short entries by a variety of scholars on all aspects of the author's life and times, with a number of surprises along the way. Anyone interested in delving further into Wright's milieu will find this volume extremely handy... Highly recommended for all university literature collections." - MultiCultural Review
