"Mr. Wright does spoil his story at the end by insisting on Bigger's fate as representative of the whole Negro race and making Bigger himself say so. But this is a minor fault in a good cause. The story is a strong and powerful one and it alone will force the Negro issue into our attention. Certainly 'Native Son' declares Richard Wright's importance, not merely as the best Negro writer, but as an American author as distinctive as any of those now writing."Wright, Richard is the author of 'Native Son ', published 2003 under ISBN 9780060533489 and ISBN 006053348X.
