Eclipse of the White Myth of Supremacy in Ernest Gaines’ A Lesson Before Dying


Ernest Gaines’s novel A Lesson Before Dying gives a strong expression to the eclipse of white supremacy in the construction of antiblack stereotypes that forground the relations between Whites and Blacks dotted with violence and injustice. That eclipse of the white myth yields a double effect. First, it parallels the rise of the new Black who succesfully dismantles the prevailing white myth ; secondly, it gives rise to hope for a brighter future.
