Here, Wright begins to develop Bigger’s view of whites as an overwhelming force that sweeps him toward doom. Native Son is written in the style of urban naturalism, much like Upton Sinclair’s The Jungle. The characters in these works are urban residents whose fates are determined by forces almost completely beyond their control. Like the main character of The Jungle, a poor Lithuanian immigrant in Chicago, Bigger perceives that the narrow boundaries of his life were already determined before his birth. A long-standing unequal division of power between white and black, rich and poor has trapped him within a disadvantaged race and a disadvantaged class. He feels watched and controlled even when white people are not present, as if white people invade his very insides. He feels like a man condemned to a degraded existence and certain doom. This sense of doom is heightened by Buckley’s campaign slogan: “If You Break The Law, You Can’t Win!” The State’s Attorney is a powerful member of the institution of white justice, and his poster foreshadows Bigger’s losing battle with white authority.
