Richard Wright's Last Literary Efforts and Last Days on Earth in Exile in Paris
By Arthur Smith

By May 1959 Wright had developed a desire to leave Paris to live in London for he felt French politics had become increasingly submissive to American pressure, and the peaceful Parisian atmosphere he had once enjoyed had been shattered by quarrels and attacks instigated by enemies of the expatriate black writers.

On June 26, 1959, after a party which marked the French publication of White Man, Listen!, Wright became ill, as a result of a severe attack of amoebic dysentery which he had probably contracted during his stay in Ghana. He was so ill that even when in November 1959 Ellen secured a London apartment, he decided "to abandon any desire to live in England. By this decision he also abridged his protracted hassles with British immigration officials.

On February 19, 1960 Wright learned from Reynolds that the New York premiere of the stage adaptation of The Long Dream received such bad reviews that the adapter, Ketti Frings, had decided to cancel other performances. Meanwhile, Wright was running into additional problems trying to get The Long Dream published in France. These setbacks prevented his finishing revisions of "Island of Hallucinations, " which he needed to get a commitment from Doubleday.

In June 1960 Wright recorded a series of discussions for French radio dealing primarily with his books and literary career but also with the racial situation in the United States and the world, specifically denouncing American policy in Africa.

In late September, to cover extra expenses brought on by his daughter Julia's move from London to Paris to attend the Sorbonne, Wright wrote blurbs for record jackets for Nicole Barclay, director of the largest record company in Paris.

In spite of his being in financial difficulties Wright refused to compromise his principles. He declined to participate in a series of programs for Canadian radio because he suspected American control over the programs, and he rejected the proposal of the Congress for Cultural Freedom that he goes to India to speak at a conference in memory of Leo Tolstoy for the same reason.

Still interested in literature, Wright offered to help Kyle Onstott get Mandingo (1957) published in France. His last display of explosive energy occurred on November 8, 1960 in his polemical lecture, "The Situation of the Black Artist and Intellectual in the United States, " delivered to students and members of the American Church in Paris. Wright argued that American society reduced the most militant members of the black community to slaves whenever they wanted to question the racial status quo. He offered as proof the subversive attacks of the Communists against Native Son and the quarrels which James Baldwin and other authors sought with him.

On 26 November 1960 Wright talked enthusiastically about Daddy Goodness with Langston Hughes and gave him the manuscript. Since Wright contracted Amoebic dysentery, his health became unstable despite various treatments. His health deteriorated over the next three years until he died in Paris of a heart attack at the age of 52.and was interred there in Le Pθre Lachaise Cemetery. Claims have been made that he was murdered.

Wright became enchanted with the haiku a Japanese poetry form which wrote over 4, 000 of. In 1998 a book was published ("Haiku: This Other World" with 817 of his most preferred ones.

Upon his death, Wright left behind an unfinished book A Father's Law. which looks at a black policeman and the son he suspects of murder. Clearly influenced by James Joyce's Ulysses, it presents one day in the life of Jake Jackson a violent man from Chicago, who has not much hope in his mean environment. Wright had finished this manuscript in 1934, titled it Cesspool, after repeatedly being rejected by publishers before Native Son was released. Wright's daughter, Julia published it in January 2008. His travel writings, edited by Virginia Whatley Smith, had appeared in 2001, published by the Mississippi University Press.

Some of the more candid passages dealing with race, sex, and politics in Wright's books had been cut or omitted before original publication. But in 1991, unexpurgated versions of Native Son, Black Boy, and his other works were published. In addition, a previously unpublished novella, Rite of Passage, appeared in 1994.

Wright's books published during the 1950s disappointed some critics, as they felt that his move to Europe had cut him off from his social, emotional and psychological roots.

During the 1970s and 1980s increasing interest is being shown in Richard Wright. with ceaseless flows of critical essays written about his writing in prestigious journals, conferences held on him on university campuses, a new film version of Native Son, with a screenplay by Richard Wesley, released in December 1986 and selected Wright novels becoming required reading in a growing number of international universities and colleges.

Recently critics have called for a reassessment of Wright's later work in view of his philosophical thrust. Paul Gilroy, for instance has argued that "the depth of his philosophical interests has been either overlooked or misconceived by the almost exclusively literary enquiries that have dominated analysis of his writing. " His most significant contribution, however, remains his desire to accurately portray blacks to white readers, thereby destroying the white myth of the patient, humorous, subservient black man. While some of his work is weak and unsuccessful especially that completed within the last three years of his life-his best work will continue to attract readers. His three masterpieces Uncle Tom's Children, Native Son, and Black Boy-are a crowning achievement for him and for American literature.

This prolific accumulation of literary works was well prepared for when as a young man living in Memphis, Tennessee, Wright began an intense reading period in which he became familiar with a wide range of authors, many of them contemporary American authors. Of that period in his life he wrote: Reading was like a drug, a dope. The novels created moods in which I lived for days
