Review of The Bluest Eye by Toni Morrison

Genre = Novel

Elaborate Description

The Bluest Eye is a few stories of how various people grow up. Each story surrounds the same juncture, each story has a different view point on the same juncture. Society creates a value system in the way people think of others. Situations occur with the main characters who do not share the same preferences as others, causing unconformable situations as it is difficult to express how one behaves with what society pretends how one should behave. Pecola takes the differences out on her self more than other people, claiming a lack of blue eyes as the problem and the attainment of them is the cure for many ailments rather then the fact the she does not share other peoples preferences. Not an example of great writing as there is a lack of flow. The author does convey some meaning.
