Book review ,,a lesson before dying" The novel "A lesson before dying" by Ernest J. Gaines, published in 1993 tells the story about a black man Jefferson being sentenced to death by the electric chair and how his personal environment deals with the situation. An important character is Grant Wiggins, a well-educated teacher who is pretty unsatisfied with living in Louisiana. He has been teaching on a plantation for several years until Jefferson was convicted of murder. Contrary to him there is the uneducated Jefferson, who internalizes the image of black people not being capable of an education or them having any rights. He firstly claims that he is innocent of the crime, his original intention was going to a bar but he then went along with two other men who were on their way to a liquor shop. It were those two shooting the storeowner and him shooting the two men but Jefferson was the only one left back at the scene of crime so it appeared like it was his fault. During his time in prison he lost any shimmer of hope and all his will to live. In addition to this we get to know the characters Miss Emma and Tante Lou, who you can not truly understand...

even at the end of the novel. And there's the sherrif Sam Guidry who is the perfect reflection of racism, ignorance and hypocrisy in the 1940's. From this you can already discern the main topic of the novel : racism against black people. In my opinion, the novel was really thrilling (mitreißend?), because you were actually able to empathize with all the different characters and it was pretty shocking for me how the characters lost more and more hope over the time. I think we all can not really imagine how hard times for black people were back then and the novel arouses a huge shame for those being ignorant in those hard times. I could really feel myself commiserate Jefferson and entirely hating the sherrif with all of my heart. It felt like you were an actual part of the story and I think that and the learning effect are two reasons for supporting the book. In conclusion I would definitely recommend reading the book, probably to all people above the age of 14. It might spread awareness of how you should see and treat other people and out of 10 I would give the book a score of 8. At some points I would have been glad to go onto more detail, but that might be due to my general high standards. Very well written Ⓒ
