Title: Community outlaw : surviving persecution in Sula and Jazz.
Authors: Wong, Jia Ru.
Keywords: DRNTU::Humanities::Literature::American
Issue Date: 2013
Abstract: This essay explores how Toni Morrison’s “Sula” and “Jazz” present the black community and its pariahs. Oppressed by the whites, the black community manifests the same oppression it has received on selected members of the black community. These marginal members’ refusal to conform to the traditional norms results in their struggle for liberation. As they manoeuver within their peripheral space, they create non-oppressive solidarity and find alternative forms of empowerment.
