Toni Morrison is one of my favorite authors I discovered her writing with Beloved for which have a copy signed by her at a reading in Brooklyn of Jazz decades ago In The Bluest Eye she looks at the intersection of racism self hatred poverty and sexuality with realism and her beautifully descriptive writing style The book starts off with one of Toni Morisson's typically powerful opening linesuiet as it’s kept there were no marigolds in the fall of 1941 We thought at the time that it was because Pecola was having her father’s baby that the marigolds did not grow loc 110 We see this flower analogy towards the end of the novel again Beautiful but hopeless proseOur innocence and faith were no productive than his lust or despair loc 118 as well asThere is really nothing to say—except why But since why is difficult to handle one must take refuge in how loc 121A beautiful metaphor for living in a racist societyBeing a minority in both caste and class we moved about anyway on the hem of life struggling to consolidate our weaknesses and hang on or to creep singly up into the major folds of the garment loc 235I liked the feminist message in this paragraph on how girls are given dolls to instruct them subconsciously in their future roles as caretakers thus why I didn't buy dolls for my daughterI was interested only in humans my own age and size and could not generate any enthusiasm at the prospect of being a mother Motherhood was old age and other remote possibilities I learned uickly however what I was expected to do with the doll rock it fabricate storied situations around it even sleep with it Picture books were full of little girls sleeping with their dolls Raggedy Ann dolls usually but they were out of the uestion I was physically revolted by and secretly frightened of those round moronic eyes the pancake face and orangeworms hair loc 265The beautiful difference between what people think she wants and what she really wantsHad any adult with the power to fulfill my desires taken me seriously and asked me what I wanted they would have known that I did not want to have anything to own or to possess any object I wanted rather to feel something on Christmas day The real uestion would have been “Dear Claudia what experience would you like on Christmas” I could have spoken up “I want to sit on the low stool in Big Mama’s kitchen with my lap full of lilacs and listen to Big Papa play his violin for me alone” loc 287How mass culture is used to instill a racist hierarchy of beauty and valueThe best hiding place was love Thus the conversion from pristine sadism to fabricated hatred to fraudulent love It was a small step to Shirley Temple I learned much later to worship her just as I learned to delight in cleanliness knowing even as I learned that the change was adjustment without improvement loc 304Wow this is one mean low down couch It withheld the refreshment in a sleep slept on it It imposed a furtiveness on the loving done on it Like a sore tooth that is not content to throb in isolation but must diffuse its own pain to other parts of the body—making breathing difficult vision limited nerves unsettled so a hated piece of furniture produces a fretful malaise that asserts itself throughout the house and limits the delight of things not related to it loc 495Brutal about how we feel we are perceived modifies behavior and thinking and reinforces povertyThey lived there because they were poor and black and they stayed there because they believed they were ugly Although their poverty was traditional and stultifying it was not uniue But their ugliness was uniueYou looked at them and wondered why they were so ugly; you looked closely and could not find the source Then you realized that it came from conviction their conviction loc 505 511How our dreams eventually lose out to realityThis family on a Saturday morning in October began one by one to stir out of their dreams of affluence and vengeance into the anonymous misery of their storefront loc 520Fascinating the two Christs hereCholly was beyond redemption of course and redemption was hardly the point—Mrs Breedlove was not interested in Christ the Redeemer but rather Christ the Judge loc 555How hate can be self sustainingHating her he could leave himself intact loc 562The downward spiral of toxic masculinityEven a half remembrance of this episode along with myriad other humiliations defeats and emasculations could stir him into flights of depravity that surprised himself—but only himself Somehow he could not astound He could only be astounded So he gave that up too loc 565The eye analogy is naturally one of the most important throughout the entire bookTry as she might she could never get her eyes to disappear So what was the point They were everything Everything was there in them All of those pictures all of those faces loc 599Pecola was for me a truly heartbreaking characterEach night without fail she prayed for blue eyes Fervently for a year she had prayed Although somewhat discouraged she was not without hope To have something as wonderful as that happen would take a long long time Thrown in this way into the binding conviction that only a miracle could relieve her she would never know her beauty She would see only what there was to see the eyes of other people loc 616The problem of peaking too early and being considered a weed instead of a flowerNobody loves the head of a dandelion Maybe because they are so many strong and soon loc 626Sad description but so aptShe looks up at him and sees the vacuum where curiosity ought to lodge And something The total absence of human recognition—the glazed separateness loc 643There is always humanity and humor in Morisson's work“Well this hippo had a ball back in Chicago Whoa Jesus ninety nine” “How come you always say ‘Whoa Jesus’ and a number” Pecola had long wanted to know “Because my mama taught me never to cuss” “Did she teach you not to drop your drawers” China asked “Didn’t have none” said Marie “Never saw a pair of drawers till I was fifteen when I left Jackson and was doing day work in Cincinnati My white lady gave me some old ones of hers I thought they was some kind of stocking cap I put it on my head when I dusted When she saw me she liked to fell out” p 729A poignant description of winterBy the time this winter had stiffened itself into a hateful knot that nothing could loosen something did loosen it or rather someone A someone who splintered the knot into silver threads that tangled us netted us made us long for the dull chafe of the previous boredom loc 800The mystery of racism to childrenWhat was the secret What did we lack Why was it important And so what Guileless and without vanity we were still in love with ourselves then We felt comfortable in our skins enjoyed the news that our senses released to us admired our dirt cultivated our scars and could not comprehend this unworthiness loc 983How a town's name can make some people dreamWhen you ask them where they are from they tilt their heads and say “Mobile” and you think you’ve been kissed They say “Aiken” and you see a white butterfly glance off a fence with a torn wing They say “Nagadoches” and you want to say “Yes I will” You don’t know what these towns are like but you love what happens to the air when they open their lips and let the names ease out loc 1069This is so beautifulThat is what she herself did But to find out the truth about how dreams die one should never take the word of the dreamer loc 1424 as is thisShe had not known there was so much laughter in the world p 1498Ostensibly this paragraph is about rotting teeth but it is also about how repeated violence rots out the inside of many many womenAnd then she lost her front tooth But there must have been a speck a brown speck easily mistaken for food but which did not leave which sat on the enamel for months and grew until it cut into the surface and then to the brown putty underneath finally eating away to the root but avoiding the nerves so its presence was not noticeable or uncomfortable Then the weakened roots having grown accustomed to the poison responded one day to severe pressure and the tooth fell free leaving a ragged stump behind But even before the little brown speck there must have been the conditions the setting that would allow it to exist in the first place loc 1501Such a wise deconstruction of romantic love and physical beauty in society's eyesAlong with the idea of romantic love she was introduced to another—physical beauty Probably the most destructive ideas in the history of human thought Both originated in envy thrived in insecurity and ended in disillusion loc 1572The horror of a white hospital treating black pregnant womenWhen he got to me he said now these here women you don’t have any trouble with They deliver right away and with no pain Just like horses The young ones smiled a little They looked at my stomach and between my legs They never said nothing to me Only one looked at me Looked at my face I mean I looked right back at him He dropped his eyes and turned red He knowed I reckon that maybe I weren’t no horse foaling loc 1607Beautiful description of freedomThey were in fact and at last free And the lives of these old black women were synthesized in their eyes—a purée of tragedy and humor wickedness and serenity truth and fantasy loc 1794One of Toni's ingenious sentences in this wonderful novelOnly they would know how to connect the heart of a red watermelon to the asafetida bag to the muscadine to the flashlight on his behind to the fists of money to the lemonade in a Mason jar to a man called Blue and come up with what all of that meant in joy in pain in anger in love and give it its final and pervading ache of freedom loc 2076I had to look up 'Moirai' which turns out to mean 'the Fates'Public fact becomes private reality and the seasons of a Midwestern town become the Moirai of our small lives loc 2395Incredibly powerful passages continuedI thought about the baby that everybody wanted dead and saw it very clearly It was in a dark wet place its head covered with great O’s of wool the black face holding like nickels two clean black eyes the flared nose kissing thick lips and the living breathing silk of black skin loc 2433A little black girl yearns for the blue eyes of a little white girl and the horror at the heart of her yearning is exceeded only by the evil of fulfillment loc 2659 Even her waking dreams we used—to silence our own nightmares And she let us and thereby deserved our contempt We honed our egos on her padded our characters with her frailty and yawned in the fantasy of our strength loc 2676The sad fate of PecolaWe substituted good grammar for intellect; we switched habits to simulate maturity; we rearranged lies and called it truth seeing in the new pattern of an old idea the Revelation and the Word She however stepped over into madness a madness which protected her from us simply because it bored us in the end loc 2680A beautiful sad endingAnd Cholly loved her I’m sure he did He at any rate was the one who loved her enough to touch her envelop her give something of himself to her But his touch was fatal and the something he gave her filled the matrix of her agony with death Love is never any better than the lover Wicked people love wickedly violent people love violently weak people love weakly stupid people love stupidly but the love of a free man is never safe There is no gift for the beloved The lover alone possesses his gift of love The loved one is shorn neutralized frozen in the glare of the lover’s inward eye loc 2683This book should probably be considered post modern in the sense that the narration moves from character to character and it is up to the reader to intuit the speaker and the time at which the action is happening True love as represented by the blue eyes and blond hair seen in the movies freuented by Frieda and Claudia as well as Pauline and most of all Pecola is as inaccessible as their parents' understanding leading them to either steel themselves against feeling like their mothers have or go insanePauline It would be for her the well spring from which she would draw the most destructive emotions deceiving the lover and seeking to imprison the beloved curtailing freedom in every wayAs Wright and Ellison had described as well life in the North was not a safehaven free from racism Cholly was just as invisible in Ohio as he would have been in Mobile The White ticket counter is still forbidden him when he buys his ticket to see his father His Aunt and the women that raised him ran the house of white people and knew it When white men beat their men they cleaned up the blood and went home to receive abuse from the victimThe cycle of violence feeds on itself leading to tragic conseuences for each of the charactersIn today's amerikkka of immigration uotas race baiting and continued white police on black violence The Bluest Eye still remains as relevant today as when Toni Morrison published it in 1970 23 years before 1993 the year she was justly awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature It really is a must readFino's Toni Morrison ReviewsThe Bluest EyeSulaSong Of SolomonTar BabyBelovedJazzParadise

her innocence offers a rawness to the story that would have been lost if narrated by Pecola or an older character Morrison brilliantly uses the passing of the seasons to tell this story Each season take place in a different time period and follows a different character in her or his life; we learn the back stories of Pecola's people through this In the final pages of this book we see how all these people make up parts of Pecola’s story Morrison writes of race better than any other writer I can think of She touches not on race in general but writes about various themes regarding race here the central theme being that Pecola’s desire for blue eyes is showing the social context that views blue eyes which in this case is the epitome of whiteness as the standard of beauty Every girl black or white should strive to be like Shirley Temple Morrison also deftly writes on parenting and family dynamics When Claudia faces an unwanted event in her home her parents act swiftly to protect their daughter When a far tragic event happens to Pecola her mother beats and blames her The main theme of THE BLUEST EYE is not simply racism but internalized racism The main characters in Morrison's novel have been conditioned to believe in their own inferiority No one suffers this than Pecola Even members of her own race put her down for being ugly and for the darkness of her skinIn the end Morrison forces us to walk in Pecola's shoes and learn of the painful world she inhabits and she does so brilliantly
