embrace her Negro ties and nly passes when convenient The book explores the attitudes Destino of both women fairly well In fact the exploration is what I think sets Larsen apart There is an inevitable comparison to The Autobiographyf an Ex Colored Man by James Weldon Johnson though Passing was written almost 20 years later They are both near ish the Harlem Renaissance Passing was told from a woman

Policeman occasional trip into white spaces Irene never fully took advantagef the full benefits Mixed Blood of passing Thene thing that neither book explores is how people who can pass were received in the Negro world Both authors paint a picture that people who could pass were completely were welcomed into the Negro environment like it was no big deal In theory it s much easier to pass in the white world than in the Negro world I find myself speculating if there is an indirect unspoken candor in the novel that poses white people as Un contratto conveniente oblivious to passing because they assume that Negroes are incapablef navigating the white world undetected I believe the term is hubris I found myself wondering would Negroes fault a person for their ability to gain some prestige and benefits by passing Passing gave some indication La tavola fiamminga of that with Irene stoking the coals that Clare was a womanf ill repute Clare clearly could not get away from some form Cracked
