READ & DOWNLOAD The Bluest Eye

The Bluest Eye is Toni Morrison's first novel a book heralded for its richness of language and boldness of vision Set in the author's girlhood hometown of Lorain Ohio it tells the story of black eleven year old Pecola Breedlove Pecola prays for her eyes Just a few days ago I happened to have a conversation with someone uite a well read person too who said uite casually almost in an offhand manner how he found books written by women uninteresting On prodding him for the reason behind his disinterest he replied that books written by women just do not engage him I didn t have the heart to ask him why a second timeAnd there it sat between us this knowledge of his disdain for women writers for some hitherto unknown reason like a breathing venom spitting invisible monster uietly killing our conversation thankfullyNo evasion Not even a half hearted attempt at rescuing an uncomfortable situation A wholly unabashed flat out declaration made with the confident self righteous air of a reader who knows what good reading should consist of and when it comes to that excludeIn retrospect when I dwell on the memory of this horrendous very real conversation I experience a crushing hopelessness It s not that particular guy I am mad at No He is only a minuscule part of the universal malady afflicting our collective psyche It is this spirited tolerance for continued ignorance and apathy that infuriates me so This tradition of belittling the female voice which speaks of personal sexual gratification love marriage and childbirth of the tyranny of beauty that forces her to adhere desperately to some predetermined standard of physical perfection the right angle to her cheekbones the right slope to her nose the right lushness to her eyelashes the right curve to her hips the right skin color to match her hair and her eyes All of this is terribly uninteresting isn t it It was as though some mysterious all knowing master had given each one a cloak of ugliness to wear and they had each accepted it without uestion The master had said You are ugly people They had looked about themselves saw nothing to contradict the statement saw in fact support for it leaning at them from every billboard every movie every glance Yes they had said You are right And they took the ugliness in their hands threw it as a mantle over them and went about the world with it So what if she is a Nobel laureate So what if she created the most haunting poignant and unforgettable elegy to the horrors that American slavery spawned So what if she has crafted an eleven year old ugly and unfortunate Pecola Breedlove with the utmost sincerity So what if she has made her ugly and unfortunate Pecola yearn for a shred of love and dignity in vain till her last days So what if she has tried to shed some light on the unloved the mercilessly trodden upon rejects of a community caught in the vicious trap of fatal self loathing So what if she has thought up a newer way to deconstruct the violence of a sexual crime by removing the convenient glamour of shame routinely heaped on the victim So what if she has tried to bestow humanity even on the ones beyond redemption So what if she has offered a window into a world where a million and one injustices compete for primacy every momentSuch trifling womanly subject matters do not mesh well with the reading tastes of a man After all the Doris Lessings and Elfriede Jelineks Nadine Gordimers and Alice Munros Zora Neale Hurstons and Zadie Smiths the Jhumpa Lahiris and the Banana Yoshimotos the Bront sisters and Virginia Woolfs writewrote books for only women to read and appreciate Women can t paint women can t write It hurts to know that the Charles Tansleys of the world are alive and well But thankfully we have the Toni Morrisons to restore some balance
