“Two souls, alas, are dwelling in my breast, and one desires to break off from the other.” As Appiah underlines, this Faustian statement perfectly epitomizes Du Bois's everlasting feeling of carrying two warring ideals in one dark body: being an American and being black. Lines of Descent, W.E.B. Du Bois and the Emergence of Identity by Kwame Anthony Appiah is an analysis of these two divergent loyalties, Du Bois's love for his oppressed race and his oppressing country, which resulted in a breakup that characterized his whole life and thought.
