Unfortunately I ve not read many Harlem Renaissance greats I ve only previously read the novels Native Son Go Tell it on the Mountain Invisible Man well pretty much The simplicity of the way this story is told with a heavy and interesting overuse of commas and a well rounded anecdote which deals with self proclamation and self deception makes this my favorite one in the canon It speaks of the race problem with the use of melodrama a very tricky device which feels snuggly at home here Irene is a woman who has bought into her class she is very much involved in her social circle and is motherly But when her very opposite comes into her life a uestion surges forward it is this how much of your race constitutes you as a person Race is an issue it is bravely brought out to the forefront with minimal embellishment all this occurs at a swift elegant even speed

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 expressible prejudice that most of us find instinctive prejudiced rejection of the purposes of othersThe storyline appears straightforward Because she is light skinned Clare Irene s childhood friend has been able to pass as the white wife of a high flying international executive He knows nothing of this deception and is in fact an avid racist possessing all the most crude attributes of the breed Irene is understandably shocked when she encounters Clare en famille as it were She judges Clare for her ambition which had led her she believes to such idiocyThat a person should attach herself knowingly to another who is inherently and openly hateful to what she really is would be classed as a psychological illness But such a diagnosis ignores the underlying motive entirely Irene dismisses Clare s intention as one of greed of trading her racial identity for a lifestyle in the white cultural world But this is merely a prejudiced presumption She had not discussed the matter with Clare And even if she had it is possible that Clare had never adeuately articulated her motives even to herselfSo has Clare made an error or has Irene misunderstood her objective Ultimately one is forced to either impose an intention on Clare or attempt to understand that intention from Clare s point of view The latter course can be characterized as one of respect The former course that is the summary rejection of the purpose of another much less its frustration is a prejudice as profound as that directed toward race But it doesn t appear so largely because it is a rejection justified as moral that is in terms of some abstract general principle This is Irene s initial reactionRespect is neither general nor abstract but always particular and concrete It refers not to a moral code but to the specific existential circumstances of another Respect means recognizing the intention of another as justified that is as grounded in the uniue experience of that person In fact this is a good functional definition of a person namely an entity which has a uniue individual purpose Almost simultaneously with her encounter with Clare Irene discovers this intentional prejudice in the reaction of her husband to her own concern about her son s education Her husband considers her irrational and simply dismisses her concerns about the course of his schooling His lack of respect for her intention the welfare of the child is obvious in the vacuous shibboleth he throws at her This hurts Irene but it also opens her to the possibility that she has been eually disrespectful to her childhood friend This is the pivotal point of the story Irene is on the verge of recognizing her own prejudice against her husband It was only that she wanted him to be happy resenting however his inability to be so with things as they were and never acknowledging that though she did want him to be happy it was only in her own way and by some plan of hers for him that she truly desired him to be so Whatever her husband s judgment of her she is guilty of a similar judgment of him and possibly of ClareThe moral philosophy implicit in Larsen s fiction is profound What Irene discovers is that there is no morality which attaches to purpose Purposes intentions commitments ambitions may be shared or not attractive or not attainable or not but they cannot be judged as reasonable correct or ethical Only the actions undertaken to pursue purpose have moral content Actions not thoughts are what affect others It is actions we have control over not the experiences we have It is from these experiences that we extract objectives either to avoid the things we have learned to fear or to obtain things we may have been deniedSo Clare s commitment to herself to have a life free from the burdens of racial prejudice must be respected This is uite different from approving of her actions in marrying a white racist This action is not only irrational it is wrong for Clare But it s purpose is not Ends are simply there possibly to be discussed modified compromised or even abandoned but never to be disrespected or rejected in principle Means have values which can be disputed and Clare does dispute them But ends do notLarsen s point or at least my interpretation of it may be controversial but part of its profoundness lies in its controversiality What she has to say is not some obvious truism like racial prejudice is horrible and some people react to it in strange ways Her book is a literary exploration of an extremely nuanced view in which behavior is the focus of moral judgment and within which respect for the purpose of others is a central tenet even when no especially when that purpose is unstated This is not a worked out philosophy but it is a valuable suggestion for a different way of understanding life s responsibilities It is a suggestion that puts racial prejudice in a larger and general context while pointing to its real evil the denial of the capacity for purpose to another human being That it is a suggestion made in 1929 at a high point of racial atrocities in the United States makes it even remarkablePostscript 28Mar19 As If to make my point I received a GR friend reuest with a comment apparently provoked by this review that I sound like an apologetic white person It s not clear if the remark was meant as a compliment of a slur But it does demonstrate some instinctive reaction that human beings have to assign and judge motives with about as much care and attention as tying a shoelace
