ENGL 73.02 Toni Morrison Senior Seminar

This course is an in-depth study of Toni Morrison’s major fictional works. We will examine Morrison’s earliest and arguably most foundational and influential novels. We will also read critical responses to Morrison’s works. Required texts will include, The Bluest Eye, Sula, Song of Solomon, Tar Baby, Beloved, A Mercy, Conversations with Toni Morrison, and selected essays. Central to our exploration will be an analysis of Morrison’s observation that “the past affects the present.” Therefore, we will explore the social and historical factors that contribute to Morrison’s artistic constructions. Some of the issues we will examine include, alternative constructions of female community and genealogy, and representations of race, class, nationhood, and identity.
