This paper examines how W.E.B. Dubois' great work "The Souls of Black Folk", weaves together a group of writing that manifests itself in a series of different literary forms, including such forms as the essay, history, sermon, anthropological record, short story, memoir, elegy and political tract. It looks at how in his work, DuBois was attempting to speak for his entire race in some fashion and thus it seems fitting that he should have applied so many genres to a narrative that sought to explicate such a multiplicity of viewpoints. It shows how by ranging across so many topics and so many genres and forms, DuBois is able to render a more effective portrait of the problems, struggles and victories that moved his contemporary black Americans.
