Read here short piece on race in AmericaThe ambiguity of thought action and character highlight issues that exist within the United States in one way or another It s a beautiful work that is easy to access though I do se a word of caution for potentially less adept readers it s intentionally confusingvague in its definitions of what racial backgrounds the two central characters come fromI wish I could state this better but this is a good Babys Watch / A Hero of Her Own uick story that had much to say Why 5 I am on an oddly euphoric literary high read something that was convoluted and crappy then I read this and may not be as objective as I should be I will say it doesn t deserve less than 4 however When I lived in Missouri I often saw blacks with blacks whites with whites at campus Two groups didn t mingle with each other as if there were always an electrostatic barrier between them and nobody dared to touch it This silent invisible wall puzzled me because they were all Americans to me all the same race to the foreign eye from an Asian countryThe story has two female characters Twyla and Roberta One is white and the other is black though the author doesn t clarify which is which The two aren t sure if Maggie was black or not and their memories of the past tinted with different ideas about race also differ from each otherLike they do we might be looking at things through colored glasses and conjuringp differences all the time Racial distinction is not made by physical characteristics but by our imagination by our consciousness of race This is a review for Recitatif I didn t read the other portion I enjoyed the short story but it was a little choppy and as a result seemed to lack depth and conflict resolution throughout I think this would work out much better as a full length novel or a play It made me want to know about all aspects and all characters which I suppose is a good thing in that it was captivating It was like tasting a bite of a delicious steak or a piece of cake but not being allowed to eat the rest Do you know what s frustrating This is Toni Morrison s only published short story and it s as powerful as a short story could be There are some really well developed themes and language as powerful as Morrison has yielded it anywhere else If she only wrote short stories in fact Toni Morrison would probably still be one of the greatest authors America has ever produced She writes paragraphs likeThey have lived in Newburgh all of their lives and talk about it the way people do who have always known a home His grandmother is a porch swing older than his father and when they talk about streets and avenues an.

D buildings they call them names they no longer have They still call the A P Rico s because it stands on property once a mom and pop store owned by Mr Rico And they call the new community college Town Hall because it once was My mother in law puts Sweet Valentine up jelly and cucumbers and buys butter wrapped in cloth from a dairy James and his father talk about fishing and baseball and I can see them all together on the Hudson in a raggedy skiff Half the population of Newburgh is on welfare now but to my husband s family it was still somepstate paradise of a time long past A time of ice houses and vegetable wagons coal furnaces and children weeding gardens When our son was born my mother in law gave me the crib blanket that had been hersand can t you just imagine the people she talks about there So stuck in their ways oblivious to the world around them that they don t realize how little things have stayed the sameThe story focuses on two lifelong friends who sometimes don t get along so well Twyla and Roberta Morrison reveals that one is white and one is black yet never says which girl is which race As the story The Rancher and the City Girl unfolds major life events like marriage career life and motherhood are set in contrast to the integration of the schools childhood trauma and even Jimmy Hendrix concerts Prejudices are confronted in ways that only the ambiguity of the story allows each girl possesses some stereotypical white and some stereotypical black traits so that common humanity becomes the focus rather than what divides them It s really touching but not in a sentimental way rather in a way that rings with truth This short story confuses you in a very good way It is really well written Recitatif tells the story of American two women from childhood to adulthood during the mid to late twentieth century It s clear from their interactions that one character must be white and the other must be black but it is impossible to definitively tell which is whichIn the first part of the story I thought Twyla was white and Roberta was black because of Twyla s remark about Roberta s hair and because of the descriptions of their mothersLater when they meet as adults Twyla remarks that Roberta s people have everything easy given this remark and the stances they took on school education I decided that Twyla was black and Roberta was whiteWhile I concluded after my second or third reading that this later impression is the correct one I appreciated thencertainty the fact that although they are clearly from different sides of the racial divide and come into conflict over this difference it is possible for each character to be from eith.

Er side And now after reflecting further I believe that Morrison did not intend there to be a right answer at all she was asking s to be aware of the presumptions we make about people and to examine the reasons for these presumptions not providing Marrying Well us with a puzzle to solve It is hard to imagine any other author being able to make this experiment work and it site Tavern Wench unlike anything else I ve ever read Reading this short piece causes you to read yourself It examines your own preconceived notions and it leaves youestioning race and class This is worth a revisit THIS REVIEW CONTAINS SPOILERSWhat I find the most interesting detail of Toni Morrison s Recitatif is that the reader is not told which girl is white and which one is black In a story about the nature of preconceived ideas and their conseuences this plays a role in making the reader feel like the two protagonists Roberta speaks about Maggie I really did think she was black I didn t make that p I really thought so But now I can t be sure HAAL 2407 The reader might feel the same way about Roberta and Twyla being compelled to examine any potential preconceived notion involving both race and class Twyla says But I was puzzled by Roberta telling me Maggie was black She wasn t pitch black I knew or I would have remembered that 2406 Earlier in the story Twyla describes Maggie as being sandy colored neither one or another color as well 2397 Even so there is a possibility that Maggie s sandy colored skin was indeed black but not perceived as such by Twyla at that time Participatory reading naked and solidified by Morrison s writing mastery A plot paralleling the civic rights movement peeps into the lives of two women protagonists for five times and always catches them in a racially insecure situation while not providing even a single clue which of these women is black and which is white Omitting this information leaves a reader with some serious thinking about the motives and actions taken by each side meaning those two girls and probably also about racial stereotypes and prejudices both cunningly hidden behind the lines and cunningly revived from the reader s mindIn the end a scent of literary experiment rather remains over some well thought out and delivered message but the story definitely deserves a readworthy status It makes you think The short story talks about two girls Roberta and Twylla one is white and one is black all though it is never mentioned which one has which skin colour for me Roberta s white and Twylla black It tells a very intersting story of America and the racial issues that are still there and all over the worl.
