Abstract:

This succinct, critical introduction to Morrison's work seeks to make her novels more accessible through unravelling notions of self-representation and narrative structure which will be new to readers accustomed to Euro-American literary conventions. Without ghettoising Morrison as a black woman writer, this is the first major study of how the experimental narrative strategies of her fiction are determined by its African-American content. Linden Peach argues that her novels are most usefully approached through an examination of the innovative techniques which they employ and the creative possibilities these offer.
