Abstract :

African American literature has engaged in a dialogue with American letters since the pre–civil war period. This dialogue has been frequently creative and more frequently contentious. It has produced a body of rich and expressive literature with insight into American society of its time. From the 1970s until how, African American writer such Toni Morrison has received acclaim for her works both aoad and at home in the United State. The present study, analyses selected works of the Toni Morrison an eminent African American author on whom very little research work seems to have been undertaken through the angle of ‘Black aesthetics’. What Toni Morrison achieved in her novel of the self against the other and its effect as a social statement. The reason why I have chosen The Bluest Eye is because the texts of Toni Morrison’s first novel, written during the era of the movement of ‘Black is Beautiful’, and carry the strongest to the depiction of African American women. The paper analyses about Race, class and Gender in Toni Morrison’s “The Bluest Eye”.
