Regarding Love and Narrative Form in Toni Morrison's Later Novels
"Jean Wyatt’s Love and Narrative Form in Toni Morrison's Later Novels is an absolutely brilliant study of Morrison’s artistry in her later novels. Not only does it convincingly establish the primacy of love as a thematic concern in Morrison’s work, but it traces, through the aid of lucid explanations of theory, the evolving conceptions of love that Morrison represents through her exploration of literary, narrative form. Marrying her reading of form to psychoanalytic theory and investigations of the work done by Morrison’s texts in structuring the reader’s responses to the ethics of the novels, Wyatt produces an impressive study that is sure to become a definitive statement on Morrison’s work."
