Toni Morrison
Toni Morrison: An Ethical Poetics by Yvette Christianse

An Ethical Poetics is an exceptional, even singular contribution to what has by now become a rather voluminous scholarly literature on Morrison’s work. Given its critical acuity and its unparalleled breadth (treating all of Morrison’s fiction through the 2008 novel A Mercy), Christianse’s book will be an invaluable resource and scholarly model for those teaching and writing about Morrison.” —Brent Hayes Edwards, Columbia University
