Description

The Bluest Eye is one of Toni Morrison's most powerful novels. The Nobel Laureate's debut is the story of Pecola Breedlove, a young black girl who prays for her eyes to turn blue so that she will be as beautiful as all the blond, blue-eyed children in America. This book presents an impressive collection of updated critical essays and an insightful introduction by editor Harold Bloom that will enrich students' insight into this heartbreaking classic that tackles the crucial themes of race and identity.

Review quote

"As always with Chelsea critical books, each volume contains the best of what has been written about the authors." "A scholarly and diverse analysis of a Mexican literary classic, recommended for college libraries and international literary study shelves." "Students preparing research papers and students boning up for class will reach eagerly for these well-designed additions to accessible literary criticism..." "Each essay is well-defined and laboriously researched, and each opinion is defended within its context...The book is a useful tool for students needing to examine the themes and context of Tolkien's work." "Each attractive volume presents recent essays by noted critics who examine in detail aspects of a single literary work ... Highly recommended for academic collections."
