Course Description

TOPIC: "'Won't You Celebrate With Me': The Selected Novels of Toni Morrison"

Toni Morrison's 11 novels are filled with messy and sometimes traumatic childhoods. Yet many of her characters manage to disengage from their psychological and physical damages in order to embrace African-American experience as the human experience. Morrison revolutionized fiction formally and linguistically, dramatized American history, and celebrated black American life. We'll study some of her greatest works in order to summon her insights and intelligence into our present tense.
