Well, we've accomplished two things this week, of which we should be proud: we have finished reading Toni Morrison's The Bluest Eye, and we've made it to Christmas break!!
Several of you expressed dissatisfaction at the ending of The Bluest Eye, the conclusion of which leaves Pecola crazy and cast out of "civilized" society. My question to you is: why do you dislike the book's conclusion so strongly? What is the definition of a book's "resolution," in literary terms? What makes this novel's resolution so unsatisfactory? Is there anything that could have made the conclusion better?
Your comment will count as a homework assignment for the third marking period of the semester.
Enjoy your vacation from school, and have a safe and happy holiday season. Don't forget about your homework!! :-)
