Abstract:

Toni Morrison and Literary Tradition explores Toni Morrison''s construction of alternative and oppositional narratives of history and places her work as central to the imagining and re-imagining of American and diasporic identities. Covering the Nobel Prize-winning author''s novels (up to Home), as well as her essays, dramatic works and short stories, this book situates Morrison''s writings within both African-American and American writing traditions and examines them in terms of her continuous dialogue with the politics, philosophy and literary forms of these traditions. Toni Morrison and Lit.
