Designed to facilitate a richer understanding of Toni Morrison’s work, this book features classroom-tested approaches and pedagogical suggestions for teaching each of Morrison’s novels as well as the fascinating short story “Recitatif.”

Each chapter includes questions and suggestions for classroom discussions, projects, and essays that illustrate how students can more fully understand Morrison’s contributions to American culture—particularly the history of racism as well as identity and cultural politics.

In addition to offering a broad variety of classroom approaches to the texts, The Fiction of Toni Morrison promotes critical thinking by asking students to investigate issues of whiteness, historiography, critical race theory, and narratology.

The book concludes with six sample student essays and a useful bibliography.
