DESCRIPTION BOOK:

From the acclaimed Nobel Prize winner: Two girls who grow up to become women. Two friends who become something worse than enemies. This brilliantly imagined novel brings us the story of Nel Wright and Sula Peace, who meet as children in the small town of Medallion, Ohio. Nel and Sula's devotion is fierce enough to withstand bullies and the burden of a dreadful secret. It endures even after Nel has grown up to be a pillar of the black community and Sula has become a pariah. But their friendship ends in an unforgivable betrayal—or does it end? Terrifying, comic, ribald and tragic, Sula is a work that overflows with life.

DESCRIPTION BOOK:

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.

DESCRIPTION BOOK:

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.

DESCRIPTION BOOK:

When Toni Morrison died in August 2019, she was widely remembered for her contributions to literature as an African American woman, an identity she wore proudly. Morrison was clear that she wrote from a Black, female perspective and for others who shared her identity. But just as much as she was an African American writer, Toni Morrison was a woman of faith. Morrison filled her novels with biblical allusions, magic, folktales, and liberated women, largely because Christianity, African American folk magic, and powerful women defined her own life. She grew up with family members who could interpret dreams, predict the future, see ghosts, and go about their business. Her relatives, particularly her mother, were good storytellers, and her family's oral tradition included ghost stories and African American folktales. But her family was also Christian. As a child, Morrison converted to Catholicism and chose a baptismal name that truly became her own--Anthony, from St. Anthony of Padua--going from Chloe to Toni. Morrison embraced both Catholicism and the occult as a child and, later, as a writer. She was deeply religious, and her spirituality included the Bible, the paranormal, and the folktales she heard as a child. Toni Morrison's Spiritual Vision unpacks this oft-ignored, but essential, element of Toni Morrison's work--her religion--and in so doing, gives readers a deeper, richer understanding of her life and her writing. In its pages, Nadra Nittle remembers and understands Morrison for all of who she was: a writer, a Black woman, and a person of complex faith. As Nittle's wide-ranging, deep exploration of Morrison's oeuvre reveals, to fully understand the writing of Toni Morrison one must also understand the role of religion and spirituality in her life and literature.

This diversity and variety add delight and adventure to her charmed life until she becomes of age and realizes that every creature in her vast world has a compliment - a mate - with which they can produce little ones of their kind. That is, every creature but her. Since they all come from a mating pair, where is she to find the pair that produced her? Her quest leads to adventures and discoveries both delightful and frightening, until it eventually leads her to her mate - her compliment - in a love story to rival the classics as her life unfolds.

DESCRIPTION BOOK:

Continental margins form the relatively narrow transition zones between the different domains of land masses and deep-ocean basins. They are the main regions of sediment input and transfer of sediments to the oceans and thus represent important zones of sediment flux. This work addresses three topics of significance to continental margin development: sedimentation, mass-wasting and stability. It should be of interest to marine geologists, sedimentologists, palaeoceanographers and physical properties specialists.
