“This is a solid volume with many rich ideas for those persons who teach and read the work of Toni Morrison. The essays are well organized, by theme rather than by novel. I enjoyed the book and learned from it.”

—Kathryn Lee Seidel, author of The Southern Belle in the American Novel

Teachers started assigning the novels of Toni Morrison long before she won the 1993 Nobel Prize in literature and before there was a significant body of secondary literature on the author. Now her works are the subject of countless studies and listed in the syllabi of an ever-increasing number of courses in schools and universities. The editors of this volume help the teacher sort out the best materials and to meet the many challenges that Morrison’s writings pose.
