Abstract

This study looks at how African-American women are portrayed and what their roles are in Toni Morrison's The Bluest Eye. The purpose of the thesis is to discover how much her female characters reflect her personal and artistic goals as well as the concerns she had regarding society, politics, and culture. The study is also interested in the method by which Morrison’s female characters display Morrison’s perceptions about the role of the Afro-American artists by simply serving as representatives of her literary, social, and political movement to find their way to the center instead of remaining in the margins. Morrison’s female characters in this novel use different strategy to resist oppression and marginalization, and thus, reflect how Morrison herself resists traditional images of Afro-American femininity and how she seeks to re-define black women as survivors not victims of their society. In the first chapter, a general overview of Morrison is given, and the sources are sorted out based on the connection they have with this term. While Chapter two is concerned with Morrison's The Bluest Eye. Finally, the last one will highlight the significance of the study by presenting the ideal African American woman using all of the information presented in the previous chapters.
