The original CliffsNotes study guides offer expert commentary on major themes, plots, characters, literary devices, and historical background — all to help you gain greater insight into great works you're bound to study for school or pleasure.

CliffsNotes on A Different Drummer offers a close look at the painstaking craftsmanship of William Melvin Kelley's novel, which expresses life and the African-American experience in a fictional U.S. state in 1957. While earlier writers of African descent were writing mainly to a white audience, Kelley wanted very much to write stories for other black people. He didn't shy away from discussing stereotypes and prejudices of mainstream America as well as the juxtaposition of tradition and enlightenment in regards to race relations.

In this study guide, you'll find Life and Background of the Author, an introduction to the novel, Lists of Characters, and more:

  • Critical Commentaries
  • Character Analyses
  • Critical Essays
  • Essay Topics and Review Questions
  • Selected Bibliography

Classic literature or modern-day treasure — you'll understand it all with expert information and insight from CliffsNotes study guides.
