The Autobiography of Malcolm X by Prof. Harold Bloom

The Autobiography of Malcolm X

Part of the Bloom's Guides Series


The Autobiography of Malcolm X by Prof. Harold Bloom

First appearing in 1965, The Autobiography of Malcolm X has proved an enduring and much-discussed publication for its frank portrait of the rise of one of America's most important black activists. Taken from thousands of hours of conversations with Malcolm X in the 1960s, the book offers a candid look at Malcolm X's education that was eventually completed on the street, in prison, and under the tutelage of Muslim mentors and spiritual leaders. Students will be enlightened by this examination of the autobiography that was transcribed and constructed by then-unknown journalist Alex Haley, the author of Roots. Featuring an annotated bibliography, introduction by master scholar Harold Bloom, and a listing of other works by the author, this addition to the Bloom's Guides series will assist students in their analysis of the text.
