內容簡介


美國黑人作家James Baldwin 1963年呼籲「終結種族夢魘」進而引發黑人公民運動的重要作品。

The Fire Next Time一面世,即成為全美暢銷書。本書分為兩部分,第一部分是James Baldwin寫給14歲姪子的信,當年是林肯《解放黑奴宣言》100周年紀念,在信中他討論種族在美國史中所代表的意義;第二部分Baldwin處理了宗教與種族之間的關係,聚焦在他年少時所經歷的基督教會,以及在紐約哈林區黑人對伊斯蘭教的理念。

Baldwin在書中呼籲,生活在美國土地上的人們,必須要全然接受它一直是多種族社會的國家,如果沒有這樣的體認,國家注定走上「萬物不生而凋零」,最終將會毀在被壓抑者的手中。

《紐約時報》書評描述本書為「以熾熱且絕佳的散文寫成,集講道文、最後通牒、告解、書面證詞、誓約與編年史於一身的書。」

A national bestseller when it first appeared in 1963, The Fire Next Time galvanized the nation and gave passionate voice to the emerging civil rights movement. At once a powerful evocation of James Baldwin's early life in Harlem and a disturbing examination of the consequences of racial injustice, the book is an intensely personal and provocative document. It consists of two "letters," written on the occasion of the centennial of the Emancipation Proclamation, that exhort Americans, both black and white, to attack the terrible legacy of racism. Described by The New York Times Book Review as "sermon, ultimatum, confession, deposition, testament, and chronicle...all presented in searing, brilliant prose," The Fire Next Time stands as a classic of our literature.

作者介紹
James Baldwin
James Baldwin (1924-1987) was a novelist, essayist, playwright, poet, and social critic. His first novel, Go Tell It on the Mountain, appeared in 1953 to excellent reviews, and his essay collections Notes of a Native Son and The Fire Next Time were bestsellers that made him an influential figure in the growing civil rights movement. Baldwin spent much of his life in France, where he moved to escape the racism and homophobia of the United States. He died in France in 1987, a year after being made a Commander of the French Legion of Honor.
