Native Son

Native Son

by Richard Wright

Analysis: Writing Style

Explanatory

Though Native Son is peppered heavily with dialogue, it is also interspersed with long passages that illuminate Bigger’s motivation. Even though the point of view of the book is Bigger’s, we are treated to explanations of his behavior that he himself doesn’t know.
