Dr. Santhanalakshmi A, Jeba Salvasani J
Toni Morrison may be considered as the most formally sophisticated novelist in the history of African-American literature. Her single accomplishment as a writer is that she managed, uncannily, to invent her own mode of literary representation. Her themes are often those expected of naturalist fiction- the burdens of history, the determining social effects of race, gender, or class- but they are also the great themes of lyrical modernism: love, death, betrayal, and the burden of the individual’s responsibility of her/his own fate. The paper attempts to show how discrimination plays a major role in distorting and destroying the peaceful and happy life of individual in the novel, The Bluest Eye Toni Morrison through the characters Pecola, Jane, Pauline portrays the evils of sexual discrimination.
