Example text

The Possessed is based on the Nechayev case, An American Tragedy on the Chester Gillette case. What makes In Cold Blood formally a work of record rather than of invention? Because formally, at least, it is a documentary; based on six years of research and six thousand pages of notes, it retains this research in the text. Victims, murderers, witnesses and law officials appear under their own names and as their attested identities, in an actual or, as we say now, “real” Kansas town. Why, then, did Capote honor himself by calling the book in any sense a “novel”?

That these figures dominate the stories is pointed up by the fact that in every case but one they appear in the title. And Capote’s custom of so naming his stories is to continue. It has been noted that the next phase of his career is marked by a new emphasis on the dreamer. The titles of several of the stories express or are related to the dreamer’s dream or ideal: “Children on Their Birthdays” and Breakfast at Tiffany’s, for example. One can see, then, in the very titles of the stories, a progression from fear to fantasy, from captivity to some kind of wistful freedom.

But though many Southern white writers were deeply moved by Nat Turner, the book was violently attacked by Black nationalists. Styron’s Turner was too sensitive for them. Harriet Beecher Stowe had answered the angry Southern critics of Uncle Tom’s Cabin by providing documentation for every horror she described in her novel. But Mrs. Stowe was worried not about “fiction” but about the violation of Christianity in a slave society. Styron was relevant to too many things at once: to the art of the novel, to the original twenty-page confession, and above all, to his contemporary belief that our psychology can illuminate the mind and heart of a Negro slave in 1831.
