Toni Morrison playing with difference
Fultz Lucille P2003
Articles
Subject: In this book, the author explores Toni Morrison's body of work, looking at the interplay between differences in her narratives, such as love and hate, masculinity and femininity, black and white, past and present, wealth and poverty. The book points out that throughout her work, Morrison's treatment of race entails a sophisticated matrix of difference, and considers how these 'potencies of difference' play themselves out in her characters. In her analysis, the author also examines Morrison's facility with imagery and wordplay and discusses the ways in which Morrison contends with the expectations of gender and race that have stiffened into traditions or even prejudices. Discussing issues that unite and divide characters, Fultz explores each novel, from The Bluest Eye (1970) to Paradise (1998), and stories such as 'Recitatif,' as parts of her broader, whole work.
