Read & download Ô PDF, DOC, TXT, eBook or Kindle ePUB free µ Toni Morrison Toni Morrison µ 2 Summary The Bluest Eye Review ß 2 The Bluest Eye is Toni Morrison's first novel a book heralded for its richness of language and boldness of vision Set in the author's girlhood hometown of Lorain Ohio it tells the story of black eleven year old Pecola Breedlove Pecola prays for he. Toni Morrison doesn t get the respect she deserves and has rightfully earned I think that part of this has to do with the unfortunate connotations people have regarding Oprah s Book Club and part of it stems from if not outright racism and misogyny than the racist and misogynist assumptions that Morrison is popular only because she is a nonwhite woman liberal guilt etc The latter is false Toni Morrison has won the Pulitzer and the Nobel because she is an excellent authorNB Before I get jumped on by total strangers for making assumptions about Morrison s detractors these are actual comments about her books from comToni Morrison is the most overrated author in America it s only because of Oprah the most overrated personality in America that she is popularYou know I know blacks have had a hard time in this worldI m not naivebut there s a right and wrong way to tell us about your problems This book is an example of the wrong way To me it came off as preachy and heavy handedOnce again Toni Morrison puts an assortment of diatribes and racial angst into book form and masuerades it as literature with a moral messageWhat is actually between the covers of the book is 150 pages of the gross aspects of sex and femine hygene That is not what makes brillant writingThe Bluest Eye does not celebrate the beauty of the black individual but instead simply and grotesuely trashes white characteristics ie blonde straight hairblue eyes So if a little blonde haired blue eyed girl reads this book is she supposed to feel ashamed to have these characteristicsI think it s terrible that Oprah Winfrey would recommend a book as anti white as this It s not as bad as some black literature that blames everything on white people but it s closeIt s foolish to assume that the thoughts and experiences of women and of nonwhite American citizens is not worthy of writing about and reviewers that slam the book as anti white completely miss the point of themes of cultural hegemony internalized hatred taboos in beauty and sexuality oppression etc And it s just darned lazy to discount this book s beautiful use of multiple narratives and excellent turns of phrase Morrison s literature often makes me angry and depressed but not as angry and depressed as some of the reviews it gets

Being a minority in both caste and class we moved about anyway on the hem of life struggling to consolidate our weaknesses and hang on or to creep singly up into the major folds of the garment Our peripheral existence however was something we had learned to deal with probably because it was abstract Toni Morrison The Bluest EyeI m rereading Morrison s books in chronological order in 2016 and I created a private group here on Goodreads for a few of us who are interested in doing the same thing Discussing this book with others has been very interesting because we all have different perspectives and can share them expanding our own understanding of the book it s been a great experienceIt s been four years since I first read The Bluest Eye and I was extremely touched and saddened by it the first time around I count it as one of my favourite Morrison books and I m glad to say that after a reread it s still very much so I m trying hard to find the words to describe how I feel about this book and it s still hard because it s a gut wrenching book which I love though love sounds like the wrong word for it how can I love a book that is filled with so much pain sadness and grief This book condenses so much tragedy despair and sadness in a relatively small space What do you focus on It can get a bit overwhelming Morrison s advice seems to be There is really nothing to say except why But since why is difficult to handle one must take refuge in howWhenever I discuss this book with people I know Pecola is often the first name that comes up Pecola the poor unloved child who prayed for blue eyes It was hard not to draw comparisons between her and Celie The Colour Purple another abused black girl who was called ugly by all those around her And I think of all the little black girls I ve known who hated being black who hated their hair their noses their eye colour who prayed for good hair lighter skin complexion etcMorrison shows the vulnerability of children so well and the conseuences of parents not telling them what they need to know in enough detail which results in them being forced to draw conclusions on their own What they aren t told they glean from observations and discussions with each other Sometimes the truth isn t known until they are older My mother s anger humiliates me her words chafe my cheeks and I am crying I do not know that she is not angry at me but at my sicknessThere are so many parts of the book that show children as voiceless black children in particular There s the issue of representation and how the white dolls our parents thought we wanted probably did harm than good I think this is an important book in revealing the other America My book had an afterword by Morrison which I m so glad I read I had no idea that this book was inspired by a conversation she d had with an elementary school friend who prayed for blue eyes It s conversations like this that never leave you it seems but it might take you until you are an adult to understand the true meaning of what those words held and what they say about our society Like Malcolm X asked Who taught you to hate yourself from the top of your head to the soles of your feet And twenty years later I was still wondering about how one learns that Who told her Who made her feel that it was better to be a freak than what she was Who had looked at her and found her so wanting so small a weight on the beauty scaleI focused therefore on how something as grotesue as the demonization of an entire race could take root inside the most delicate member of society a child the most vulnerable member a female Toni Morrison The Bluest Eye afterword
