    (PDF/EPUB) [Passing Author Nella Larsen] ï Nella Larsen Our Most Common PrejudiceThis novel is an extended example of a figure of speech called synecdoche in which a part is used to reference the whole What makes it unusual and highly creative is that the part that Larsen uses is the gross and glaring fact of racial prejudice The whole is a much subtle and barely ex

Written in the late 1920 s this is indeed a powerful piece of writing and all these years later still remains an important one dealing with the uncomfortable critiue on modern race relations Nella Larsen holds her own place in history for being the first African American woman to receive a Guggenheim fellowship and while her body of work hardly got off the ground in terms of numbers what she did produce was fascinating insight into the tough lives people of mixed race had to endure This short novel was an uneasy read with some uite painful moments which looks at the lives of two very different young black women in Harlem Irene Redfield is part of the elite Accomplished reasonably wealthy and sophisticated but living in a cultural enclave Whilst Clare Kendry is just as isolated but worryingly from her own race Like a handful of others Kendry is passing for caucasian her husband makes jokes about her skin tone but has no idea she is classed as non whiteThis is as much a story about the gap between private and public selves as it is about racial identity but what I found particularly thought provoking was the subtle nature it offers on standards of beauty from within as well as on the outside That it seems are just as ingrained now as they were back then nearly one hundred years ago Even today there appears a constant stream of controversies involving black celebrities having their skin lightened in tone for magazine covers and interviews Does for example buying into black idols just perpetuate the idea that women have to conform to a white woman s standards of beauty in order to get in the spotlight Absolutism though has no place in Larsen s novel there is much sympathy for Clare even if she is participating in events that harm and insult other black women There is a desire to be swept up in a social group that was still very much above the one she was born into She still want s to hang out with her real kind and through letters this leads her to rekindle a friendship with Irene or Rene who is wholly uncomfortable about the idea Obviously America has come a long way since this book was written but not far enough having a racist leader doesn t help this could uite easily be happening out there right now Certainly there are plenty of pressures on all of us at some point in out lives but it always ends up with non whites bearing the brunt of it I have to be honest although Larsen raises a serious topic here the story as a whole just kind of underwhelmed me The structure of the narrative never gave me the impression of being anything that great I was certainly drawn to the circumstances of both women than how Larsen went about telling it It did however feature a shocking finale which I didn t see coming but ultimately it shouldn t have surprised me as what went before was never on the happy side A major work on race it maybe but just lacked that extra something to be a memorable one A solid 35
