    Passing author Nella Larsen (KINDLE) 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

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

What if I could be someone else Crossing borders sneaking into a different society through the back door and living a secret life fearing the conseuences of detection that is the main theme of Passing which I read directly after uicksand but had to let sink in for a couple of days before reviewing uicksand is about how you slowly steadily sink deeper and deeper into life choking when you feel the lack of choice the lack of freedom in a world that judges you for the colour of your skin your gender your attitude towards traditionsPassing is about rebellion against the status uo and it ends with an explosion of violence I was rather unprepared for and still can t digest entirely as it challenged my perception of good and bad characters to the breaking point which is something I appreciate in a novelNella Larsen is definitely a new discovery for me this year writing seemingly effortless stories of women facing racism and male dominance in the glamorous New York of the 1920s But she does not end there Her stories are also deeply concerned with the relationship between women themselves and their contrasting responses to their shared situation It is a tale of love and friendship and hate and betrayal of victors that turn into victims and vice versaPassing the main topic of the short novel was something completely new to me as a phenomenon Light skinned women who have African American heritage choose to pass for white in certain circumstances to be able to move in the world that is closed to them if they admit their ancestry In the time of strict segregation this is a risky business Fearing the humiliation of detection and expulsion from the society they are not allowed to enter on eual terms if they are honestly admitting their roots they live a thrilling but also nerve racking life on the border of everyday institutionalised racismThe two main characters are childhood friends who choose different paths in life one of them marries a white blatantly racist man and lives her life in privilege and fear of discovery while the other chooses to stay within the Harlem community and raise her children in the African American cultural settingTension grows over the years as the friends meet and compare notes What are the rules for these women in a society that is hugely unjust towards them What is the game they are playing themselves And what compensation are they entitled to It is a story of what women do to each other as well Instead of uniting to create a better platform for themselves they develop a subconscious competition And the stakes are high If you fall they are deadlyThis novel left me deeply saddened but also grateful It opened a new door and widened my perspective on discrimination while giving me the kind of shiver only a good thriller can produce

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
