Example text

This is texture. Morrison's prose cannot be skimmed; it must be savored. It is best read aloud, slowly. A BRIEF SYNOPSIS Just after the end of World War I, Shadrack, a black, shell-shocked veteran, is released from the military hospital where he is being treated for battle stress. Alone and disoriented, Shadrack drifts back to his home in the Bottom, where he becomes known for his eccentricity and for creating National Suicide Day, January 3, a day once a year on which people can commit suicide and not be stigmatized for doing so.

Although Sula leaves Nel at the end of the chapter, Nel, whether rightly or wrongly, still feels incredibly attached to her best friend. " Perhaps in the midst of her wedding day's happiness Nel does not realize the significance of Sula's leaving, for she obviously still assumes that she has an almost telepathic link to Sula. However, the chapter ends with Morrison writing that Sula and Nel's next meeting would be "thick with birds," and when we read the opening lines of the next chapter, we find that Sula's returning to the Bottom is accompanied by a plague of robins, certainly not a good omen for Sula, Nel, or the black community.

He drowns accidentally. the deweys Three young boys whom Eva takes into her family. BoyBoy Eva's errant husband and father to her three children. He deserts the family, then briefly reappears three years later, along with a girlfriend in a pea-green dress. Mrs. Suggs A kindhearted neighbor, she helps Eva and her young family after BoyBoy deserts them; she and her husband douse the burning Hannah with water that they are using to can tomatoes. CRITICAL COMMENTARIES PART ONE Morrison begins the novel with a short prologue that focuses on change: the leveling of a black neighborhood--the Bottom, situated in the hills above the valley town of Medallion, Ohio--in order to create a golf course for white people.
