1. Native Son. Richard Wright. New York : Harper & Row, c1940.

    While not apologizing for Bigger’s crimes, Wright is sympathetic to the systemic inevitability behind them. As Bigger’s lawyer points out, there is no escape from this destiny for his client or any other black American, since they are the necessary product of the society that formed them.
