Sula and the Question of Social Identity in African American Fiction Excerpt :

Research Paper (undergraduate) from the year 2010 in the subject Literature - Africa, Mohamed I University (literaturevand human sciences), course: extensive reading, language: English, abstract: The paper approaches an exploration of two major themes in Sula: social identity and gender subalternity. I would begin with an overview of the major points that mark the novel, and then shift to violently serious disagreements that bore reference to the submissive, subaltern position that Sula had to encounter. It is common sense to assume a certain Manichean worldview, for societies are bound to declare unorthodox conduct as persona non grata. This will pave the way for questing a priori justifications to the meaning of reality and illusion. Afterwards, I will emphasize the social, racial and psychological facets of resistance and representation, which portray oppressing challenges within society. These result in clear-cut demarcations, which in the event of being drawn, ontological questions germane to identity prove primordial. Next, I am highlighting philosophical explanations of self and other based on two critical angles: androcentrism (i.e. David Hume, Emanuel Kant and Durkheim) and feminism (i.e. Julia Kristeva and Simone de Beauvoir). I am eventually positioning the debate on the narrative platform, as being an arena of tension between central self and peripheral other. The analysis is held from a postmodern perspective. I would therefore attempt to build a bridge between the discourse of Morrison, who is addressing her message in the name of Sula, and that of postmodernism, which is a deviation from representation and a turn towards self-reflexiveness.

Toni Morrison Excerpt :

In this innovative study, Lucille P. Fultz explores Toni Morrison's rich body of work, uncovering the interplay between differences - love and hate, masculinity and femininity, black and white, past and present, wealth and poverty - that lie at the heart of these vibrant and complex narratives. Much has already been made of Morrison's treatment of race, but Playing with Difference demonstrates that throughout her work Morrison creates a sophisticated matrix of difference, layering a multitude of other distinctions onto the racial one and observing how these potencies of difference play themselves out in her characters. Fultz's holistic, thematic approach to her subject enables her to move deftly among the novels and stories, building a nuanced understanding of how markers of difference influence Morrison's narrative decisions. She examines Morrison's facility with imagery and wordplay and discusses the ways in which Morrison contends with the expectations of gender and race that have stiffened into traditions - or worse, prejudices. novel, from The Bluest Eye (1970) to Paradise (1998), along with stories, such as Recitatif, as parts of an elaborate and dynamic whole. Lucille P. Fultz, an associate professor of English at Rice University, has been an NEH fellow, a Mellon fellow, and the recipient of a Ford Foundation grant. She is a coeditor of Double Stitch: Black Women Write about Mothers and Daughters and the author of essays on Toni Morrison that have appeared in several collections.
