A Mouth Full of Blood

A Mouth Full of Blood

Toni Morrison összegyűjtött esszéi, beszédei és elmélkedései.

Ez év elején jelent meg az író esszékötete: erőteljes, tudományos és lényeges gondolatok összessége, amelyek mindannyiunkhoz szólnak.

Mi a legfontosabb számunkra? A családunk, a nyelvünk, országunk, vagy a nemünk? A vallási vagy faji hovatartozásunk? És ha ezek egyike sem számít: urbánusok vagy kozmopoliták vagyunk? Vagy csak magányosak?  Más szavakkal: hogyan döntjük el, hová tartozunk? Mi győz meg minket arról, mit cselekedjünk..?

    Mouth Full of Blood (Hb)

    Morrison,Toni
    Kiadó: Random House,Uk
    A vital new non-fiction collection from one of the most celebrated and revered writers of our time'Word-work is sublime, she thinks, because it is generative. It makes meaning that secures our difference, our human difference-the way in which we are like no other life.We die. That may be the meaning of life. But we do language. That may be the measure of our lives.'The Nobel Lecture in Literature, 1993Spanning four decades, these essays, speeches and meditations interrogate the world around us. They are concerned with race, gender and globalisation. The sweep of American history and the current state of politics. The duty of the press and the role ofthe artist. Throughout A Mouth Full of Blood our search for truth, moral integrity and expertise is met by Toni Morrison with controlled anger, elegance and literary excellence.The collection is structured in three parts and these are heart-stoppingly introduced by a prayer for the dead of 9/11, a meditation on Martin Luther King and a eulogy for James Baldwin. Morrison's Nobel lecture, on the power of language, is accompaniedby lectures to Amnesty International and the Newspaper Association of America. She speaks to graduating students and visitors to both the Louvre and America's Black Holocaust Museum. She revisits The Bluest Eye, Sula and Beloved
