Toni Morrison and the Bible
©2006 Textbook 258 Pages
Series: African-American Literature and Culture, Volume 12
This collection of essays critically interrogates Toni Morrison’s use of the Bible in her novels, examining the ways in which the author plays on the original text to raise issues of spirituality as it affects race, gender, and class. Ideal for courses on Morrison or on explorations of the intersection of religion and literature, this collection treats its topic with sophistication, considering «religion» in its broadest possible sense, and examining syncretic theologies as well as mainstream religions in its attempt to locate Morrison’s work in a spiritual-theological nexus.
