The voices of Toni Morrison by Barbara Hill Rigney( Book )
11 editions published between 1991 and 1994 in English and held by 823 libraries worldwide
In her analysis of Morrison's five novels - Beloved, The Bluest Eye, Song of Solomon, Sula, and Tar Baby - Rigney defines a black feminine/feminist aesthetic. The many "voices" of Toni Morrison, Rigney argues, are manifested in her radical use of language, her reformulations of self and identity, her reinterpretations of history as both fact and mythology, and her images of female desire. As Rigney describes Morrison's texts, they are characterized by deliberate and meaningful silences, by the movement beyond language into music, and by representations of magic realism and the conjure world. While Morrison's fictions disrupt traditional chronologies and diffuse linearity, they also bear historical witness to the realities and brutalities of slavery, reconstruction, depression, and war - and thus, Rigney documents, they are always profoundly political. Rigney's study, like Morrison's novels, transcends traditional interpretations, maps new territory for postmodern fictions, and cultivates a common ground for a discourse on theory, race, and gender

Exile : a memoir of 1939 by Bronka Schneider( Book )
3 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 247 libraries worldwide
Bronka Schneider and her husband, Joseph, were two of the thirty thousand Austrian Jews admitted as refugees to Great Britain between March 1938 and 2 September 1939. It was not until 1960, however, that Schneider wrote her memoir about the year she spent as a housekeeper, with Joseph as butler, in a Scottish castle. The editors have divided this memoir into chapters, adding headlines from the London Times as epigraphs. These headlines, reporting the escalating events of World War II, are in stark contrast to daily activities of the residents of this isolated region of Scotland. A commentary by Erika Bourguignon provides historical, political and cultural background of this period
