it was amazing
bookshelves: academic, adoration-of-author
Read in July, 2002

Morrison, who is a stunning writer, also has a history in publishing. She combines her literary brillance with her ability to critique, and the result is a solid academic work delving into the symbols writers and society use to establish binaries of good/bad, black/white, beautiful/ugly. Certainly this book is a seminal study of race in literature.
