R ichard Wright was born 4 September 1908 in Roxie, Mississippi, and died 28 November 1960 in Paris, France. One could sum up his life as a series of three stages: his youth in the South, his early career in the North (both Chicago and New York), and his expatriatism in France. In 1927, after years of family movements through the American South, Wright moved from Memphis to Chicago, where he would soon go to work in the post office , an experience he used in his novel Lawd Today! . In the early thirties, he began his literary career publishing poetry and short stories in such magazines as Left Front Anvil , and New Masses . The success of Uncle Tom's Children in 1938 and Native Son in 1940 propelled Wright to international fame. In 1947, in reaction to the continued racism he encountered in America, Wright decided to move to France for an indefinite period. While in France, Wright took a growing interest in anti-colonial movements and also travelled extensively. In 1959, the year before his death, Wright made plans to move with his family to England. While his family managed to go ahead, Wright was delayed by visa problems. He died in France. A page of resources for Richard Wright. This page is in its very early stage.

September 4, 1908 in Adams County, Mississippi was the day Richard Wright was born into a life of poverty, and racial discrimination. He was quoted as saying, "I was born too far back in the woods to hear the train whistle..." The eldest of two boys, Richard was the son of Nathaniel Wright and Ella Wilson. When he was fifteen, Wright knew he wanted to be a writer. Known as a poet first, through his writing, his goal was to bring two worlds together, one Black, and one White, and make them one. His most successful work, Native Son, a Chicago story about a Mississippi boy, 'Bigger Thomas,' in New York had an autobiographical tone. Native Son sold 250,000 hardback copies in six weeks at five dollars apiece. His marriage to Ellen Poplar, a white woman, like his writing was controversial. The hurt and pain from his early years in the south drove him to write as he did. The author of 16 books, some of which include, Black Boy, The Outsider, and American Hunger, Richard Wright died mysteriously of a heart attack at the age of 52 in Paris, France.

Richard Wright, the grandson of slaves , was born in Natchez, Mississippi, on 4th September, 1908. His father deserted the family in 1914 and when Richard was ten years old his mother had a paralytic stroke. The family were extremely poor and after a brief formal education he was forced to seek employment in order to support his mother.
Wright worked in a series of menial jobs in Memphis. He wanted to continue his education by using the local library but Jim Crow laws prevented this. Wright solved the problem by forging notes to pretend he was collecting the books for a white man. During this period he was particularly impressed by the work of H. L. Mencken

RICHARD WRIGHT (1908-1960) Ask someone who has read haiku if they can name any female Japanese haiku poets besides Chiyo. The answer you will get almost every time is a blank stare. What does that have to do with the selection for this month's poet profile? Maybe nothing, but now ask this same "someone" if they know of any Afro-American haiku poets. Did you get another blank look? I won't, though I am tempted, ask you to ask about Hispanics or other minorities.
Many people are quite surprised when they discover that the author of books such as Native Son, Black Boy, Black Power, White Man, Listen!, American Hunger, Rite of Passage , etc. also wrote haiku poetry. It is even more startling when it is learned that he wrote over 4,000 haiku! Many haiku poets that have been writing for 20 or 30 years have not written that
many, and yet Wright accomplished that amazing feat in less than one!
Wright was first introduced to haiku during the last year or two of his life. Haiku became the calm eye within during this stormy period marked by a series of traumatic and chaotic events. His mother Ella, who he had written of so emotionally in Black Boy and who had given him the kind of childhood in Mississippi of which he had so many fond memories, died in January, 1959. That same month, the French writer Albert Camus, who Wright

    B C D ... Z by birthday from the calendar Credits and feedback Richard (Nathaniel) Wright (1908-1960) American short story writer and novelist, whose best known work, NATIVE SON, appeared in 1940. The book immediately established Wright as an important author and a spokesman on conditions facing African-Americans. It gained a large multiracial readership and was a Book-of-the-Month Club selection. Wright's works drew on the poverty and segregation of his childhood in the South and early adulthood in Chicago. "And, curiously, he felt that he was something, somebody, precisely and simply because of that cold threat of death. The terror of the white world had left no doubt in him about his worth; in fact, that white world had guaranteed his worth in the most brutal and dramatic manner. Most surely he was was something, in the eyes of the white world, or it would not have threatened him as it had. That white world, then, threatened as much as it beckoned. Though he did not know it, he was fatally in love with that white world, in love in a way that could never be cured. That white world's attempt to curb him dangerously and irresponsibly claimed him for its own." (from The Long Dream Richard Wright was born on a plantation near Natchez, Mississippi. He grew up in poverty. His grandparents had been slaves and his father, Nathaniel, who was an illiterate sharecropper and mill worker, left home when Richard was five. His mother was a schoolteacher. The family moved to Memphis, where she found employment as a cook. In 1915-16 Wright attended school for a few months, but his mother's illness forced him to leave. He attended school sporadically, living with his relatives in Arkansas and Mississippi. In his childhood he was often beated. However, he continued to teach himself, secretly borrowing books from the whites-only library in Memphis. "My days and nights were one long, quiet, continuously contained dream of terror, tension, and anxiety," he later wrote in his autobiography BLACK BOY (1945).
