James Baldwin Ë 9 FREE DOWNLOAD FREE DOWNLOAD î The Price of the Ticket Collected Nonfiction 1948 1985 The works of James Baldwin constitute one of the major contributions to American literature in the twentieth century and nowhere is this evident than in The Price of the Ticket a compendium of nearly fifty years of Baldwin's powerful nonfiction writing With truth and insight these personal prophetic works speak to th It took me awhile to catch the rhythm of his writing And it took me even longer to start appreciating his message Many of the early pieces are angry and critical and difficult to read difficult for me as a white person And I kept being mad that so much of what he holds against the US deals with what the white MAN has done to the black MAN including hurting or taking his women and children I resented the sexism and I resented the anger directed at me And then I kept reading and I understood better I realized that my initial reaction to write him off for being sexist was exactly the kind of thing he was discussing in his writing that human beings to say nothing of white or black or men or women seem to prefer to defend their position even if they haven t spent any time thinking about whether or not it s defensible rather than hear someone else out Because to change one s mind might mean taking action which most people are too lazy or cowardly to do So I started listening better if only because I too share a desire for people to THINK about why they believe things and to have good reasons for their personal ideas and ideals And then I found Baldwin to be compassionate talking about his little brothers and sisters during his father s funeral their little legs the only thing holding them up uncompromising principled andstill difficult But difficult in a positive way asking people to work hard every day to make the world a better place to make their best visions of themselves and the world into a reality With action With never taking the easy way With never biting their tongues in the face of bigotry hatred and injustice And that s a hard way to liveHis historical interpretations are useful and important the unexplored heritage of the US as related to slavery the colonial economy all of that The ways in which slavery and the doctrine of white supremacy hurt ALL people black people in obvious ways but white people too by telling them not to delve too deeply into the motives of the past the relations of the present not to feel the guilt to maintain distance from all people Many of his generalizations are just that but he has hit on some important concepts I m reminded of the I need feminism memes going around asking all people to explain what they can gain from feminism not just that feminism takes things from men and gives them to women that make it possible for US Americans to realize that the past has shaped us all that these views of each other aren t productive and that a better way could be possible envisioning the RELIEF when we can lay all of that down with the hope of picking up something lighter and better The idea that the US does not respect independent intellectual labor the thinker is always a potential challenger to all of the surface living that US Americans do That is at once an indictment of the country but also a prescription for its improvementAnd then to see him confront himself across the years in Dark Days to go from the young man saying I will never fight for a country that never fought for me to the older man visiting that younger man in jail To recognize his role changed as time went by He sees the SLOW moving of history he may not accept it or may not accept what it means in terms of delayed justice but he acknowledges it and seems to maintain a sort of hope from the idea of the passage of time the crumbling of empiresI found him at his best when he combines his analysis of history McCarthyism the Vietnam war the Civil Rights Movement his personal history of growing up in Harlem and his trips to the South and to Europe and his critiue of popular culture especially film The combination is transcendent making something beautiful out of some ugly pieces into a synergistic whole Maxims of Kabir powerful nonfiction writing With truth and insight these Elegant Sewing for Baby projects from Martha's Sewing Room Series 1300 and 1400 personal The Edge of
