R eyes to turn blue so that she will be as beautiful and beloved as all the blond blue eyed children in America In the autumn of 1941 the year the marigolds in the Breedloves' garden do not bloom Pecola's life does change in painful devastating wa. ,
S to Taking to the Streets: The Transformation of Arab Activism read theoad Selling Beauty: Cosmetics, Commerce, and French Society, 1750–1830 rather than some shit with fabio on the cover sorry hockey moms has gotta be up there with the alien and sedition act in terms of evils perpetrated on the good citizens of this country Toni Morrison doesn t get theespect she deserves and has Men of Empire: Power and Negotiation in Venice's Maritime State rightfully earned I think that part of this has to do with the unfortunate connotations people haveegarding Oprah s Book Club and part of it stems #FROM IF NOT OUTRIGHT RACISM AND MISOGYNY THAN THE #if not outright acism and misogyny than the and misogynist assumptions
that Morrison is popular only because she is a nonwhite woman liberalMorrison is popular only because she is a nonwhite woman liberal 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 ight 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 Bazaars, Conversations Freedom 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 girleads this book is she supposed to feel ashamed to have these characteristicsI think it s terrible that Oprah Winfrey would To Russia with Love: An Alaskan's Journey 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 andeviewers 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 Punk Pedagogies in Practice reviews it get. YsWhat its vivid evocation of the fear and loneliness at the heart of a child's yearning and the tragedy of its fulfillment The Bluest Eyeemains one of Toni Morrisons's most powerful unforgettable novels and a significant work of American fictio.
