Toni Morrison

An Ethical Poetics

Yvette Christiansë

A Fordham University Press Publication

  • This, Christiansë first full-length scholarly work, should make her a major voice in black literary scholarship, especially its theoretical side.
  • The author has an uncanny grasp of Morrison's entire oeuvre, and in every chapter she ranges across all that work, drawing out hitherto unnoticed themes and connections.
  • Above all, she treats Morrison as a writer in the modernist tradition, an author who contributes not just to our understanding of the trauma of race but to our understanding of writing itself, and how the two interrelate.
