The creative corpus of Toni Morrison: A cursory glance
Author(s): Dr. Nistha Parashar
Abstract: Regarded as the vanguard of Afro-American literature, Toni Morrison occupies an unassailable place in the world of letters with her novels like The Bluest Eye (1970), Sula (1974), Song of Solomon (1978), Paradise (1998) and many others. She is an Afro-American by birth but a pure African by her race. Her novels clearly depict the environmental degradation along with the suffering of Africans in America. While going through her novels, readers could easily make out that how she has deliberately inter mingled the issues of race, gender and environment in them. The very fact that she had received Nobel Prize for Literature corroborates to the view that her writings are universal and global in their approach rather than being regional or race bound. The present paper thus is an attempt to offer a bird’s eye view of her fictional output in front of readers with an aim to generate interest and curiosity in their minds.
