TONI MORRISON is considered one of the best contemporary American writers, and this novel is one that is often taught at the high school honors level. As you read it and write your comments, see if you can understand why it has received the praise it has.
The idea is that this spot should be a conversation about your important and unique thoughts on the novel, so when you post, respond to what others have said and add something new to the conversation. Support your discussion with quotes from the text and discussion or analysis of those passages. Do not simply summarize the events of the novel. Remember that you must post four times. Proofread carefully because I will not approve poorly edited comments, and you will not receive credit for them. Postings for this book are due July 13. Difficulty in posting is not an excuse for lateness.
