Lyrical and quite moving at points. ( )

The Souls of Black Folk is far more famous, but I think this is a superior piece of work. It represents Du Bois at his most complex -- he's not starry-eyed over the promise of liberalism anymore, but nor has he given up hope entirely on America. The resulting ambiguity gives us some fantastic chapters of work that are must-reads for anyone interested in race in America. ( )
