Her books have been adapted into highly extolled films such as Beloved, largely because, even when set in the past, they grapple with issues and emotions relevant to contemporary society. --Designed for students and general readers, Reading Toni Morrison is a handy introduction to Morrisons works and their place in the world. The book begins with a look at Morrisons life and writing. Chapters overview the plots of her novels and discuss their themes, characters, and contexts. The book then examines Morrisons treatment of social issues and the presence of her works in popular culture. Chapters provide sidebars of interesting information along with questions to promote student research and book club discussion. -
