Toni Morrison Explained: A Reader's Road Map to the Novels - used book

ISBN: 0375707328

ID: 4452526

Ron David isn't so audacious as to actually try to explain Toni Morrison. Like a great novel, a complex individual is beyond factual explanation. His "explanation" of Morrison is more an attempt to provide readers with enough information and insight so they can explain Toni Morrison to themselves. For starters, David writes the kind of introduction to an author that he says he would like to read: "creative, provocative, irreverent, passionate, funny, spontaneous, and real." Add "unpretentious" to the list and you get a fair idea of the sort of tone David strives for--and achieves. His stated goals: to get people to read Morrison's books, and once read, to provoke folks to rethink the standard interpretations. David also embraces honesty and humor. He writes, "Toni Morrison is in grave danger of being treated like a sacred cow. I have done my best to protect her from that cruel fate." But above all, David's book is shaped by his belief in spoken language, that the best way to engage readers in lit crit is to write the way you speak, "you and I, hanging out over coffee, talking like real people." Engaging and readable as his writing is, however, David's prose is more astute and poetic than most coffee clutch conversations. One rarely overhears small talk of "wordmusic" and "Literary Hedonism" while passing Starbucks. There's no harm done, however, by his flair for expression. His folksy, just-us-chatting tone renders his sharp insights and commentary all the more penetrating 20th century,classics,education and reference,history,history and criticism,literature and fiction,modern (16th-21st centuries),movements and periods History, Random House Reference
