Upon her passing in 2019, The New York Times called Toni Morrison a “towering novelist of the Black Experience.” Margalit Fox, in her obituary, wrote that “[Morrison] explored black identity in America…through luminous, incantatory prose resembling that of no other writer in English.” This course is a “deep dive” into the beautiful poetry, complex themes, and unflinching politics of two of the most unique, widely read, and world-renowned novels by the Nobel Prize-winning author – Song of Solomon and Beloved.

Required Texts: Toni Morrison, Song of Solomon, Beloved
