by Carl Plasa
Part of the Readers' Guides to Essential Criticism series
In this Readers' Guide, Carl Plasa presents and analyses the most important writings on Morrison's novel, beginning with a discussion of the novel's reception and a consideration of selected interviews with Morrison in the years following publication. Chapters are given to critical writings on the supernatural element of the work, with extracts from Deborah Horvitz, Elizabeth B.
House and Pamela E. Barnett, and to treatments of the physical self, with essays from David Lawrence and Kristin Boudreau. In the final chapter, the Guide considers criticism which has focussed on postcolonial and postmodern perspectives. Throughout, Carl Plasa's narrative contextualises and clarifies the critical material on this complex and important work.
