content. According to W. J. Weatherby, the editors warned Baldwin that such a
book ...

[Author's italics] 2. Giovanni's Room D. H. Lawrence's portrayal of Ellen as a self-
admitted failure was mild compared to James Baldwin's delineation of bisexuals
in his novel, Giovanni 's Room. He treats the difficulty of love with an intensity that

Giovanni's Room, and renewed his sense of alienation through the crossover of

process of this novel, Baldwin foregrounds the issue of finding and escaping "
spaces," be it Giovanni's "room," the "space" of David's American home, or the "
closeted space" of discursive containment. An objective of this chapter is to

metaphorically to signify the "discursive space" David needs to be author to his
own identity. Also, I wish to establish David's struggle as largely symbolic of
Baldwin's own struggle ...
