Toni Morrison and Literary Tradition Résumé

Toni Morrison and Literary Tradition: The Invention of an Aesthetic Dr Justine Baillie (University of Greenwich, UK)

Choice Outstanding Academic Title 2014 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 Literary Tradition provides a comprehensive analysis of Morrison's entire oeuvre, from her early interrogation of Black Power to her engagement with fin de siecle postcolonial critiques of nationalism and twenty-first century considerations of ecology. Justine Baillie goes on to argue that Morrison's aesthetic should be understood in relation to the historical, political and cultural contexts in which it, and the African-American and American literary traditions upon which she draws, have been created and developed.

Toni Morrison and Literary Tradition Avis

The book enacts a detailed and meticulously theorized study of Morrison's fiction from her 1970 debut, The Bluest Eye (1970), to her tenth novel, Home (2012) ... [Baillie's] critical readings are often striking for their freshness ... Indeed, the book's final chapter, on Love, A Mercy and Home, is a welcome and rare exploration of this late phase in the Morrisonian oeuvre. This last chapter on these often underdiscussed texts is tantalizingly short; I hope Baillie will return to discuss these in future work. * Contemporary Women's Writing *
