I’ve been sick for days. I haven’t been reading, let alone posting. 😫 But I’m finally feeling a little better! I’m spending my Tuesday evening with some coffee and this excellent classic, by the fabulous Toni Morrison... . . . . . #books #book #bookish #instabook #hardcover #hardback #tonimorrison #beloved #modernclassic #slavery #slave #literature #americanliterature #historicalfiction #fave #relaxation #readingandrelaxing #igbooks #igreads #goodreads #bookaddict #bibliophile #bookstagram #bookstagrammer
🌿 covering issues of race, gender, sexuality and class as she investigates the intricacies or obligation and betrayal, toni morrison’s tar baby is phenomenal. powerfully written characters draw you in from the outset, and the centrality of a romance plot does nothing to reduce the complexity of the issues explored - on the contrary, it helps morrison dig deeper. simultaneously historical and contemporary, tar baby is rooted in a story morrison heard as a child, and engages masterfully with a developing oeuvre of african american novels exploring the relationship between historicity and storytelling. . . 🌿 i don’t think i can stop raving about this book. i happened upon it during research for my masters dissertation, and will definitely be writing about it! my dissertation is specifically about adoption, and morrison’s novel doesn’t involve that process as we formally know it via governmental institutions, but that’s what makes it all the more interesting. considering what is gained or lost of your identity through adoption, morrison’s racialised invoking of this discussion is intelligent and captivating. . . . 🌿 while i was on one level wholeheartedly invested in the love story between jadine and son, every subplot and minor character beautifully contributed to the overall artistry of the novel and made it a rich tapestry of character. with some soap opera worthy plot twists and revelations, the theatricality of the novel only boosted it in my mind. this is my second morrison novel (i studied jazz as part of an american literature module in second year), and i don’t doubt it won’t be my last. has anyone read any other morrison novels? which should i look to next? 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟 . . . #bookstagram #tarbaby #tonimorrison #penguinvintage #americanliterature #penguinrandomhouse #universityreading #shelfie #bookshelf #bookish #booksofinsta #booklover #reading #books #bookworm #literature #booklove #bookdragon
"Возлюбленная" Тони Моррисон 👧🏾 "Бэби Сагз решила, что раз уж жизнь, проведённая в рабстве, «испоганила её ноги, спину, голову, глаза, руки, почки, чрево и язык», то теперь у неё не осталось ничего, кроме её большого сердца — которое она тут же и заставила трудиться." . . СЮЖЕТ (10/10): Действие романа происходит в 1860ых годах, в Американском штате Огайо. История о чернокожей рабыне, которая сбежала из дома своего хозяина. В самом начале книги мы узнаем, что Сети убила свою дочь. И теперь её дух беспокоит всех жителей дома 124. Книга посвящена «более чем шестидесяти миллионам», под которыми имеются в виду негры и их потомки, погибшие от трансатлантической работорговли. . . ЯЗЫК (10/10): Роман получил Пулитцеровскую премию, вошёл в топ 100 книг всех времён по версии 100 писателей. В 1993 году автор получила Нобелевскую, в том числе и за "Возлюбленную". Как думаете, какой там язык? Появилось желание почитать в оригинале. Ведь, как известно, перевод может лишить нас оттенков. Книга не лишена эзотерики, чего-то потустороннего, в ней есть недосказанности. Автор так умело может приоткрыть завесу событий, что тебе всё становится понятно, при этом не перегружает тебя страшными описаниями пыток. Но иногда описывает их в красках. . . ГЕРОИ (10/10): Все герои книги - рабы, бывшие рабы или рабовладельцы, или охотники за беглыми рабами. Каждый из них страдает в настоящем или прошлом. Мудрая Бэби Сагс проповедует своему импровизированному приходу, Джей Би противостоит злу, поселившемуся в доме, Сети выживает [из ума], Бел пришла с того света или умело убеждает в этом всех. . . ДЛЯ КОГО: Не советую слабонервным, беременным, молодым мамам или тем, кто чувствует потаенную вину перед своими детьми. Автор способна вытащить вашу боль наружу, давить на неё, наступать, сыпать на неё соль, обжигать. Я предупредила. (Свайп фото 👉 чтобы узнать общую оценку)

#OprahWinfrey was in town to praise one of her idols, Nobel laureate #ToniMorrison : “It’s impossible to actually imagine the American literary landscape without a Toni Morrison,” Winfrey said Tuesday night during a dinner gala in downtown #Manhattan hosted by the Center for Fiction, which named Morrison the winner of a lifetime achievement award. “She is our conscience, she is our seer, she is our truth-teller.” #africacablenetwork #blacktory #acnnews #celebnews #entertainment #oprah

#HOLIDAYREADS : 02 Finally got around to finishing #TarBaby by #ToniMorrison and boy was it good. Morrison’s writing is always so easy to read and the subliminal narrative of race, more specifically blackness, is striking and carefully crafted into a beautiful piece of prose. . . . “at some point in life the world’s beauty becomes enough. You don’t need to photograph, paint or even remember it. It is enough. No record of it needs to be kept and you don’t need someone to share it with or tell it to. When that happens – that letting go – you let go because you can. The world will always be there – while you sleep it will be there – when you wake it will be there as well. So you can sleep and there is reason to wake.” . . . 3.75/5 . . . #jonreadsbooks #bookstagram #booksofinstagram #mylibrary #reading #whatiamreading #instalibrary #readingchallenge #goodreads #goodreadsreadingchallenge #bibliophile

Ieri è venuta in visita alla #biblioteca #Giovanna di @mivienedaleggere : una delle cose più preziose che le abbiamo mostrato è il libro con tanto di dedica di #ToniMorrison della “Lecture e speech” in occasione del conferimento del Premio #Nobel per la #letteratura 1993. Il volume, disponibile in #biblioteca solo per la consultazione, presenta note e sottolineature di #LauraLilli poeta, scrittrice e giornalista che ha donato la sua #biblioteca a noi! E questo è uno dei #libri del suo fondo: siamo decisamente fortunate! www.bibliotecadelledonne.it . . . #womenslibrary #biblioteche #biblioteca #lavorareinbiblioteca #lauralilli #libricondedica

Tanzanite gemstone energy is highly protective, an aspect in keeping with tanzanite meaning that is invaluable during spiritual healing. It resonates or vibrates at a high rate which makes for a quick but gentle connection with angelic realms, spirit guides and higher consciousness. * * * You are your best thing. ~ Toni Morrison #alovenotetoself #selflove #selfcare #investinyourself #followyourdreams #bebest #selflovethread #selfcarethreads #selfcareissacred #tonimorrison #beloved #songofsolomon #books #reads #crystals #chakras #healing #therapysession #healer #empath #spirituality #432hz #loveyourself #singingbowls #binauralbeats #positiveaffirmations #mantra #healingstones #flowers #believeinyourself

“Remember that moment when you first encountered a character who seemed to be written just for you? That feeling of belonging remains with readers the rest of their lives - but not everyone regularly sees themselves reflected on the pages of a book.” • ‘Well-Read Black Girl: Finding Our Stories, Discovering Ourselves’ by Glory Edim 👉 In this timely anthology, #GloryEdim , founder of the online community, #WellReadBlackGirl , brings together original essays by some of America's best #blackwomenwriters to shine a light on how important it is that we all - regardless of gender, race, religion, or ability - have the opportunity to find ourselves in literature. Whether it's learning about the complexities of #femalehood from #ZoraNealeHurston and #ToniMorrison , finding a new type of love in #TheColorPurple , or using mythology to craft an alternative black future, each essay reminds us why we turn to books in times of both struggle and relaxation. As she has done with her book club-turned-online community, Edim has created a space where black women's writing, knowledge and life experiences are lifted up, to be shared with all readers who value the power of a story to help us understand the world, and ourselves. Contributors include: #JesmynWard (Sing, Unburied, Sing), #LynnNottage (Sweat), #JacquelineWoodson (Another Brooklyn), #GaboureySidibe (This Is Just My Face), #MorganJerkins (This Will Be My Undoing), #TayariJones (An American Marriage), #RebeccaWalker (Black, White and Jewish), and #BarbaraSmith (Home Girls: A Black Feminist Anthology).
It’s time to get rid of the baggage! 🧳 God gave us limited energy and it’s up to us to use it to be who we were called to be. Let’s cheers to getting rid of any habits, relationships, insecurities etc that are robbing us of joy and freedom. 🥂
With the laptop messing up...looks like I'll be working on finishing the last 100 pages of Beloved today. Looking forward to seeing how it ends! #amreading #tonimorrison #beloved #Beloved #greatread #book #greatbook #reading
Oprah speaking about Toni Morrison at The Center for Fiction. She knocked it out of the park! Caught the incantation, the stirring Oracle-like voice of Morrison. I met Morrison only once when her French publisher had a dinner for her. I couldn’t have been more than 16 but her force remains immediate to me. Still reverberating decades later. She was not well enough to come last night, but Oprah did her justice and Michael Ondaatje is hardly chopped liver! A different sort of force, poetic, but no less timeless. A great night for fiction! #tonimorrison #centerforfiction @centerforfiction @knopf #michaelondaatje
It’s #Oprah ! What a wonderful night at @center4fiction awards. Highlights include: Oprah (obvs), #carlhiassen speech, and hearing Sonny Mehta talk about his extraordinary career. Oh and the most delightfully awkward acceptance speech by Tommy Orange. Wishing #tonimorrison good health and a speedy recovery. #publishing #litlife #bookstagram #agentlife #oprahbookclub
Depuis 2 ans je ne lis que des auteurEs, des romans (adulte et jeunesse) et bande-dessinées de femmes talentueuses, moins médiatisées, moins connues et moins étudiées que les œuvres d'hommes en général.. Il m'a bien fallu ces deux années pour me déconditionner, pour mieux m'identifier à des personnages féminins alors que j'ai surtout lu depuis mon enfance des héros masculins.. Deux ans pour découvrir une littérature souvent plus militante, rêvant d'émancipation, pleine d'intelligence et de créativité. Deux ans pour aduler #chimamandangozieadichie , #harperlee ou encore #malikaferdjoukh , pour ne plus oublier #virginiedespentes ni #tonimorrison , deux ans pour avoir changé mes habitudes de lecture pour toujours ❤️ #womenliterature #girlpower #bookstagram #bookshelfie #instabooks #instalivres
. . #okudumbitti . . Merhaba dostlar 🙋‍♀️ . "Siyahlığın çukurundan çıkıp dünyayı mavi gözlerle görmek isteyen siyah bir kız çocuğu"nun hikâyesi bu... Yazar 1993 yılında Nobel Edebiyat Ödülü kazanmış. İlk romanı olan bu kitabın değeri yazıldığı 1969 yılından ancak 25 yıl sonra, 1980'li yıllarda anlaşılmaya başlanmış. . . Sevgili @felidaela sayesinde bir grup arkadaşımızla buluşup kitabı konuşacağız. O yüzden fazla detaya girmeyeceğim. Ama çok vurucu, rahatsız edici, sorgulatan bir kitap olduğunu söyleyip okumanızı tavsiye ediyorum. . 💔 Muhtemelen insanlığın fikirsel tarihinin en yıkıcı iki fikri. Her ikisi de hasetten doğan, kendine güvensizlik hisleriyle serpilen ve hayal kırıklığıyla sona eren iki fikir: Romantik aşk ve fiziksel güzellik. .

Morrison appreciation post. She is one author who I would not hesitate to pick up. I've also read 'A Mercy' but think I borrowed that from the library last year so it's not in my collection. Plenty of time to change that though 😏 ▪ Photo inspired by @_penandpapers after a discussion we had about how talented a writer Morrison is.

If you know me then you know I am a voracious reader. Reading was my first love before TV & internet. Books were how I entertained myself as a child, how I escaped into magical worlds, traveled back in time and fed my vivid imagination. So I was beyond giddy to attend the @center4fiction benefit where the iconic word magician Toni Morrison was to awarded for a Lifetime of Excellence in Fiction and wait ... #Oprah presented her with this award!! Storytellers will always be my superstars! 📚 * Special thanks to Mama Miller for capturing the back of my head w Oprah!! 😆🥰 #ToniMorrison

Have you seen my latest blogpost on the Hick sensibility? . . It’s titled American Gothic: Part VI Codeswitchin’ . . An excerpt “It is almost as if the ability to hold two separate ideas in one mind is like the many facets of a diamond. Richard Freeman, the jewel of yoga in the Western Hemisphere has made a sincere effort to evolve and become one sincere being that is always still and yet contains gravitas. There is no code switching with Richard. He is too presidential. Several times I hosted Richard Freeman in Taipei, Taiwan where I was teaching yoga professionally. I commented then how surprising it was that we were both from Illinois, both Hicks from the center of the center of the nation, the middle of the middle, and yet somehow he was born a Prince and I was born this pig.” . . #richardfreeman #tonimorrison #codeswitching #billclinton #sooey #bharati #barthes #poststructuralism #artblogger #pratyahara #blacklivesmatter #artistsoninstagram #paintersofinstagram #artist #russellalticecase #portraitpainting #nudeart #beautyevolution #tromploeil #paintbrushes
~~ A line that has stuck with me 20+ years is, “…that, my dear, is called reading.” Supposedly it was said by Toni Morrison in response to readers saying that certain literature (hers?) is too complicated to understand. Correct me please, if I’ve messed up the story. Anyway, Oprah has been said to quote it a lot. Paradise was one of her book clubs selections. Do you read Toni Morrison? * #paradise #tonimorrison @aaknopf

“In a way, her strangeness, her naivete, her craving for the other half of her equation was the consequence of idle imagination. Had she paints, or clay, or knew the discipline of the dance, or strings; had she anything to engage her tremendous curiosity and her gift for metaphor, she might have exchanged the restlessness and preoccupation with whim for an activity that provided her with all she yearned for. And like any artist with no art from, she became dangerous.” #sula #tonimorrison #sulapeace

INTERNATIONAL DECADE FOR PEOPLE OF AFRICAN DESCENT #Development #Justice #Recognition All I could think about as I watched the devastating video of the police forcefully physically pulling this little black boy from his screaming black mother's arms is how often this same thing had happened during #AfricanDiaspora enslavement in the Americas and the Caribbean. #ToniMorrison in her novel #Beloved has a black mother willingly kill her black children rather than have the white men take them from her. It seems like not much has really changed since #Emancipation for the #AfricanDiaspora @Regran_ed from @shaunking - BREAKING: All charges have been dropped for Jazmine Headley after she was assaulted, had her baby snatched from her, and was then sent to Rikers Island for 4 nights. She’s still at Rikers as her team works to get her released immediately. Thank you to @bklyndefender and @brooklyndaoffice for helping make this happen. “Continuing to pursue this case will not serve any purpose and I therefore moved today to dismiss it immediately in the interest of justice,” Brooklyn District Attorney Eric Gonzalez said in a statement.

Next read - ‘Jazz’ by Toni Morrison (complete with a few festive treats ❤️)
R E S E Ñ A : Voy recuperando la vida tras el encierro porque tengo mucho pendiente por contaros y enseñaros. Esta es una de las tres lecturas que terminé la semana pasada. Fue una lectura que me apetecía mucho, descubrí a Toni Morrison de casualidad y me enamoró su historia. Mujer afroamericana que ha crecido en un gueto de la América más rancia y absurda. Una vida entera luchando por hacerse a sí misma y por hacerse oír. Gritos contra el racismo, la xenofobia y el machismo. Una mujer hecha a sí misma. Así que de toda su obra elegí esta historia, tal vez la que me hacía pensar que más se acercaba a su vida por la trama. Pero mi cabeza se hizo unas expectativas y la realidad fue otra. Hay que destacar de esta novela la estructura y la maestría con la que intercambia las diferentes perspectivas de los personajes, regalándonos una historia vista en 360 grados. Pero ya está, para mí la novela no tiene nada más reseñable. Los personajes son planos del primero al último, les falta mucha profundidad, no se resuelven las incertidumbres y terminas por perderte en una maraña de visiones de una historia que a la vez engloba otras diferentes. Un follón que termina abruptamente dejándonos con un BLUFF en los labios 🤷🏻‍♀️ Yo quería devorarla y al final la intercalé con otras lecturas. He terminado de leerla porque @stonquet a la que aprecio con locura me dijo: sigue leyendo. Y también porque Morrison es Premio Nobel y eso como que impone y una se queda pensando que tal vez todo estalle más adelante, que tiene que ser así. Pero no... no estalla nada y se queda para mí en un libro prescindible 😔 Eso sí, estoy segura que algún librazo tiene esta señora de las letras americanas o eso quiero pensar. Su forma de narrar es ágil, directa y clara. No se anda por las ramas. Por eso creo que alguna historia tendrá que sea lo más. Y la voy a buscar para compartirla con vosotros 😬😬😬 Tal vez este no es el mejor libro para empezar con Morrison y sea más un libro para fans de la autora ¿no sé? Malo malo no es, pero.... hay tanto por leer tan Bueno por ahí 🤷🏻‍♀️ Si buscáis algo de Morrison elegid otro y así me contáis 😊 ¡FELICES LECTURAS! . . . . #tonimorrison #lanochedelosniños
