Wright, James

Wright, James,

1927–80, American poet, b. Ohio. He studied at Kenyon College and the Univ. of Washington. The master of an elegant, beautifully controlled style, his early poems contained surrealistic juxtapositions. Later works abandoned willed complexity in favor of a plainer diction. His works include The Green Wall (1957), Shall We Gather at the River? (1968), To a Blossoming Pear Tree (1977), and the posthumous The Shape of Light (1986).


See his collected prose, ed. A. Wright (1982).

In this way, many of the essays in Hemingway and the Black Renaissance are intertextual readings such as Scruggs's broad search for Hemingway's "ghostly presence" in works by Richard Wright, James Baldwin, and Ralph Ellison; Joshua Parker's mapping of Baldwin's Giovanni's Room against the Parisian setting of The Sun Also Rises; and Roger Field's account of Hemingway's political and stylistic influences on the African Marxist Alex La Guma.
