Summary:

Native Son brought a new depth to the issue of racism and black life in America. By delving deeply into the consciousness of a single, oppressed and confused urban youth, Richard Wright resurfaced the buried complicity of white America in every anti-social black crime. He exposed the psychological impact of repression on the human individual. And by using murder as his point of reference, he ensured there was no anti-social African-American behavior that could be exempted from malevolent racist influence.
